Tubular drag chain conveyors: How they work and how to select one
A tubular drag chain conveyor can convey materials at any angle and in any plane around equipment and other obstacles in your plant, can handle friable and other delicate materials without particle degradation, and can be equipped with a range of specialized components to handle tough material characteristics and process requirements.
The tubular drag chain conveyor (also called a tubular drag link-chain conveyor or tubular drag conveyor) provides gentle, enclosed, continuous transfer of bulk solid materials, including fine powders, granules, pellets, and moist sludges, at any angle, in any plane, and around any obstacle. How? The chain links in the conveyor ’s chain-and-disc conveying mechanism function like universal joints, enabling the conveyor to simultaneously move material in multiple directions and planes. The conveyor also has a low-profile, flexible design that allows it to fit into tight spaces around existing plant equipment.
