Add to Comparison


Choosing a chain conveyor is determined by need for load stability, when rollers are not sufficient, when pallet boards or tote runners are conveying the wrong way, when the loads are transferred, or when crossing-over is necessary. This twenty-five foot long, heavy duty, four-strand chain conveyor is for handling unstable loads up to 5,000 lbs each. The customer uses it outside of a foundry, for bins of hot forgings to index and accumulate while cooling down. The frames are galvanized and the chain is self lubricated. Proper OSHA safety guarding, although not shown here, was applied.
