Drag Conveyors



Drag Conveyors encompass a wide range of industries and applications from grain production to mining to food processing. Regardless, drag conveyor components must stand up to continuous movement, variable speeds and extreme wear. At Diversified Plastics, Inc. our manufacturing capabilities support a broad range of standard and custom plastic components for drag conveyors. Most important, the parts are manufactured to be application specific and to ensure high performance and long life.

We developed MultiFab to address a simple truth - different components of a given part often require different qualities for maximum performance. In some instances it may be best to use one material where strength is needed, but a different material where durability is needed. Our MultiFab approach enables us to do that by - for example - machining one component out of nylon, molding another from UHMW and assembling the two into a single part. The result is a better-wearing, longer-lasting and oftentimes less-expensive option.

  • Fabricating
  • Machining
  • Polyurethane casting
  • Design
  • Engineering
  • Quality assurance testing
  • Performance testing

Diversified Plastics is a family-owned, Montana company with big capabilities and a proven history. Since first hitting the on switch in 1976, we’ve focused on winning customers, not contracts. That approach has earned us a strong reputation for meeting needs across a variety of industries — food processing, cement, agriculture, wastewater treatment, mining, timber, packaging / conveying and more.
