Drag chain conveyors have an endless chain with feed dogs (cross ribs) which runs in a closed trough. This makes them suitable for transporting bulk materials. Depending on the design of the feed dogs and trough, material can be conveyed horizontally, on an incline or vertically. Bows can be installed allowing different conveyor sections to be combined.
This makes them particularly suitable for use as discharge or distribution conveyors. Material can be conveyed in the lower run as well as the upper run.
The KKF 400/500/600-1K-U drag chain conveyor transports the material in the lower belt and has a central conveyor chain.
Chain conveyors with endless chains with feed dogs in closed troughs are suitable for the transport of bulky material.
This version of Vecoplan-chain conveyors transports the material in the lower run by means of a centered conveying chain with 11.2 t breaking load. The chain runs in the return on a low-wear chain guide rail that is entirely covered in the feeding area so that no material can get into the chain.
By use of upper and lower elbows the course of chain conveyors is almost on choice. Motorical or pneumatical slides allow additional user-defi ned discharge positions.
