We Design, Engineer, Manufacture & Supply All Type of Conveyor Systems For Unit & Bulk Material Handling.

Chain Conveyors

We manufacture several types of Chain Conveyor systems based on the requirements of our clients and they are:

    Apron Chain: It is mostly used to move loose bulk materials like coal, lime, sand and stone along horizontal or inclined conveyors. Apron Conveyors are especially useful as feeders to elevating systems, for picking tables and loading booms, and for long horizontal or inclined conveyors. Such systems are mostly used in mining industry.
    Apron conveyors usually consist of endless chains with attached overlapping and interlocking plates to provide a continuous-carrying surface that forms a leak proof bed suitable for bulk materials without containers so it can be easily moved.

    Pusher Conveyor Chain: These systems are used to convey rigid packages or unit loads having an even base by pushing them over a fixed bedplate. These conveyors have one or more endless strands of chain with suitable attachments to push the loads.
    Many packages or objects can be conveyed on plain chain conveyors without any attachment, slats or fixtures. They usually need no support. The objects can be rolled onto the conveyor at one end and are discharged over the head shaft of the conveyor.
    The chains carry the weight of the material and the frictional drag of the chains on the materials carries it along.
    Such systems mostly find use in Cannery, Steel Industries and Dairy Industries.

    Slat Chain Conveyors: Such systems consist of two or more endless strands of chain with attached non-interlocking wooden slats or metal flights to carry the material which is to be moved through.
    These systems find use in Unit handling applications and are major used. The most common uses are to move products for shipping and processing such as in appliance assembly lines.

    Pallet Chain Conveyors: Such systems are used when moving large heavy loads such as pallets, drums, bales etc. These systems can handle product up to nominally 2 tons depending on the type and size of the load. They are also used in Chill or Cold stores where a stainless steel version is utilised which uses special low temperature components.

    Rod Chain Conveyors: These systems, which are formed of link chains and skewers, are generally used in dough processing and bakery sector. The conveyor belt, which is preferably manufactured from chromium or cold drawn carbon steel, is formed of double sided link chains and skewers centred to them at regular intervals.

    Carrier Chain Conveyors: Carrier Chain conveyors are built with attachments that are either connected to or are an integral part of the chain system. They form a carrying medium or continuous surface for an individual part. Such systems are widely used to convey parts and assemblies. Chains are usually standard roller conveyor or bar-link chains. They can be arranged to travel paths in horizontal, inclined, or, combination patters and contours, and are built in wide range of types and sizes.
    They find use mostly in the steel industry.
