Schrage Rohrkettensystem GmbH

Schrage Rohrkettensystem GmbH

For more than two decades, we have been planning and implementing conveyor systems for various bulk solids and many industries – individually suited to your needs. Our tube chain conveyor also reliably transports your bulk material from A to B. Schrage tube chain conveyors are conveyor systems for a wide variety of industries. It is possible to transport abrasive, toxic, explosive, or adhesive bulk material or even materials with high temperatures. As a complete conveyor system, it is modular with a flexible layout for a large variety of industries and bulk materials, along with interesting additional components to meet different desires. This is all planned by highly specialized staff members who all have a passion for the new challenges that the handling of bulk materials poses. And the in-house test conveyor is looking forward to receiving your samples.The Schrage inclusive-carefree-packet for conveyor systems provides service from A to Z, also on site and worldwide.

It all started with a question: What is the best way to move bulk material from A to B?  By this time, at the end of the 1970s, Remmer Schrage had already gained extensive experience with regard to conveyor technology – from screw conveyors to bucket elevators. However, our clients wanted more:  “Can’t we improve it all?” Can’t we make it more flexible, dust tight, or more energy efficient? Thus, Remmer Schrage started to experiment with round disks, which were pulled by cords or chains, inside tube cases. Because the chain proved to be rather practical, the name “tube chain conveyor” was adopted.  The advantages were as great as the demand, so that Remmer Schrage decided to establish the company Schrage Rohrkettensystem GmbH on July 31, 1987.

Prospectuses were printed and the first prototype was built on a mobile chassis so that Schrage could convince all interested parties with a private conveyor demonstration. Remmer Schrage set out from his native Friedeburg, in Ostfriesland, and drove throughout the entire country with his mobile demonstration apparatus.

In the beginning, people were rather bemused by the sight of the contraption but the effort soon paid dividends. The tube chain chain conveyors were astonishingly well suited to applications in various industrial sectors. Today, Schrage technology is not only utilized in Ostfriesland, but also all over the world.  

The mobile prototype (which can still be seen in Friedeburg) has developed into an entire technology center. While continuing to perfect the tube chain chain conveyors, Schrage has also managed to construct more than 2,300 conveyor plants since 1987. His sons Ralf and Frank Schrage run the company now. The two progeny share their father’s passion for the job, especially when an unusual bulk-material sample arrives and poses a new challenge for the constructers, for example.

The Schrage motto “We Convey Solutions” is not just an empty promise. We, furthermore, promise that this will also continue to be the case in the future.
