Multi-Strand Chain Conveyors

Product Description

Chain conveyors are used when loads won’t convey on rollers, when load stability is important, when pallet boards or tote runners are going the wrong way, when transferring the load, or when stepping across the conveyor is necessary. Stability is usually a problem with chain conveyors, which is why this four-strand conveyor has special transition sections to transfer loads from one conveyor to another without losing load stability. These transition chains are slave driven from the preceding chain conveyor by sprockets on a common shaft. This unit also has diamond tread walk plates mounted between the strands of chains to allow operators access to crossover the conveyor.

Specialty Equipment manufactures fillers and conveyors with structural steel frames and supports welded together, making each unit a one-piece superstructure, the most rugged standard in the industry.
