TROUGH CHAIN CONVEYORS
TROUGH CHAIN CONVEYORS with intermediate bottom are used for continuous, high-performance transport of small- and coarse-grained bulk materials in a dewatered or dry, adhesion free state in a trough housing closed on all sides without dust formation.
Depending on required conveying capacity, the conveyor chain and the trough can be designed as single- or double- strand. The material of construction depends of the requirements of the material to be conveyed. The conveyed material can be discharged at any point of the trough. The number and position of the discharge points can be adjusted by using gate valves.
The material conveying line can be horizontal, inclined or vertical, with concave or convex curves. The 20 chain conveyor
trough segments are flanged and can be adapted to the existing structural conditions. They are statically supplemented by necessary support or suspension structures.
For wear protection, the bottom plates and the sidewalls of the inner trough, which are in the contact with the chain, are protected by guides made of manganese steel. For heavy duty wear protection, fused basalt or various wear-resistant materials are employed.
