Chain Conveyors and Bucket Elevators

November 17, 2009
Often used together, the MoveMaster chain conveyor and bucket elevator utilize the ‘En-Masse’ principle where bulk materials are induced to move like a liquid through a dust-tight steel casing, which can be designed horizontally, on an inclined plane, vertically, and around bends. This method avoids internal disturbance or pressure on the material and allows for discharge at any opening where the load is permitted to fall away from the flights. The conveyor’s versatility allows it to handle a range of capacities from 10 to 2000 tn/hr and also be used as a conventional drag chain. To ensure absolute quality control the chains are made from high-tensile alloy steel forgings and for maximum strength and service life the chain links are heat treated and the flights are precision welded to them.
