Chain conveyor is a kind of conveying equipment with a large carrying capacity. It is commonly used in the waste management and recycling industry to send materials into the shredder in large quantities.
The precision conveyor chain, like transmission chain, consists of a series of journal bearings held in precise relationship to each other by constraining link plates.
Each bearing consists of a bearing pin and bush on which the chain roller revolves. The bearing pin and bush are case-hardened to allow articulation under high pressures, and to contend with the load carrying pressure and gearing action imparted via the chain rollers.
Like belt conveyors, also a chain conveyor is engineered with the purpose of transporting materials. Transporting materials on this type of conveyor commonly proceeds in a horizontal way, but also vertically over a short distance to a higher level is possible.
The advantage of including this type of conveyor to your installation is that this conveyor is particularly suitable for moving heavy loads. In some cases, the belt and its infeed hopper are used for temporary storage of materials.
Of course, the high-quality, durable materials we utilize to engineer any part of your conveyor system also applies to building a chain conveyor. According to your requirements for dimensions and conveyed materials to for example a bailing press, a box feeder or a belt conveyor, ShredRecycling engineers a chain conveyor that fits your installation perfectly.
