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.

Selecting the Right Conveyor

  • This conveyor type can also be partially or fully enclosed to allow for the focused handling of materials while guaranteeing that the product remains free of dust and other contaminants.

Common Applications
