Chain Conveyors

Type of Chain Conveyor :
A) Accumulator Chain Conveyors
B) Extended Pitch Chain Conveyors
C) Powered Chain Roller Conveyors
D) K2 Chain Conveyors

A chain conveyor is a type of conveyor system for moving material through production lines

Chain conveyors utilize a powered continuous chain arrangement, carrying a series of single pendants The chain arrangement is driven by a motor, and the material suspended on the pendants are conveyed Chain conveyors are used for moving products down an assembly line and/or around a manufacturing or warehousing facility

Chain conveyors are primarily used to transport heavy unit loads, e.g. pallets, grid boxes, and industrial containers These conveyors can be single or double chain strand in configuration The load is positioned on the chains, the friction pulls the load forward

  • Chain conveyors are generally easy to install and have very minimum maintenance for users
    Many industry sectors use chain conveyor technology in their production lines
    The automotive industry commonly uses chain conveyor systems to convey car parts through paint plants
  • Chain conveyors also have widespread use in the white and brown goods, metal finishing and distribution industries
    Chain conveyors are also used in the painting and coating industry, this allows for easier paint application
    The products are attached to an above head chain conveyor, keeping products off of the floor allows for higher productivity levels
