Conveyors are the powerful handling equipment that continuous transport heavy or bulky grains and other materials to different locations. Belt, Drag and Screw Conveyors are well used in our grain silos Industry.
The capacity is up to 420m³ /hr. They are designed in modular and tailored in different lengths to meet stored products handling requirements.
Drag conveyor (also called drag chain conveyor) is one of the commonly used material handing equipment fin our grain storage system. it is a light enmasse conveyor widely applied for food or grain handling. The drag conveyor is a continuous conveying transportation equipment with a rectangular cross-section connected with the moving chain. Drag chain conveyor is widely used to transport the particles and powdered material horizontally, it also can be used for transport obliquely and vertically.
The drag conveyor does not produce dust and cause no environmental pollution because of the whole sealing of the closed trough, so it can improve the worker operating conditions and can’t cause food scatter when used in the outside. It is also free from weather conditions.Meanwhile, It is capable of executing both single point and multi-point feeding and discharging. In some conditions, it has some prominent advantages for the toxic, explosive, high temperature materials transportation. It can also be applied for flying material transportation to protect working conditions and prevent environment pollution.

Devices for speed loss and chain breakage protection are optional
Drag Conveyor Applications
Drag conveyors are suitable for conveying bulk food, oil, feed and other bulk materials. They are widely used in sea port, dock, grain depot and the malt, flour, brewery, feed and chemical industries for horizontal bulk material conveying.
