Chain Conveyor Types

Besides its standard chain conveyor model, Power Pack offers two additional types that can be tailored to fit your exact industry setting. See below to learn more about the two different types of chain conveyors:
Drag Chain Conveyor

Drag Chain Conveyor

The drag chain conveyor has a simple and efficient design that utilizes paddles to transfer product from one point to another. Particularly ideal for moving dry materials like ash, wood chips, and grain, this conveyor type is often used in industries that handle agricultural goods, chemicals, and construction materials.
Salt Conveyor

Slat Conveyor

This conveyor uses a motorized chain-driven loop of slats to move product from one end to another. The chain metal is engineered in such a way that it can be used in hazardous and high-temperature environments, while still providing a smooth carrying surface for heavy products, impact loading, and mounting fixtures. The slat conveyor is typically used in appliance and machinery assembly lines because of its durability and flexibility when transporting wet, hot, and hazardous industrial material.
