Trough chain conveyors are mechanical continuous conveyors with rotating traction mechanism designed for transporting bulk material by an endless chain of carriers in a closed trough. They can convey horizontally, inclined or vertically.
SCHRAGE trough chain conveyors are produced as a modular system. The horizontal and vertical trough chain conveyors differ only with regard to the trough format. In the vertical trough chain conveyor a false floor is installed in the inlet area to prevent overflowing so that the product can be transported steadily into the shaft tower. The whole vertical shaft tower is equipped with a false floor so that by forced entrainment the conveying good can be transported in a continuous flow.
SCHRAGE trough chain conveyors are dust and product sealed, water- and gastight versions are also possible. They feature outer or inside bearings, a drop-forged or drag link conveyor chain, sprockets with replaceable segments and wear rails, special designs on demand.
