Chain Conveyors

Chain Conveyors

A chain conveyor is a common requirement in many bulk material handling applications that moves material through production lines. Chain conveyors utilize a powered continuous chain arrangement carrying a series of single pendants, driven by a motor, to convey the material suspended on the pendants.

Application Area

  • Chain conveyors are ideal for handling dry, free-flowing materials.


  • Materials are static and move en-masse by paddles or chain.
  • Minimal product degradation during conveying.
  • Require less horsepower than other types of conveyors.
  • Easily Replaceable Wear Liners for Minimal Down Time.

Industries Served

  • Chain conveyors are primarily used to transport heavy unit loads, such as pallets, grid boxes, and industrial containers, and in industries where transferring materials such as grain, sawmill refuse, wood refuse, hot lime, and similar non-abrasive materials horizontally or on inclines up to 45 degrees takes place.
