Trough chain conveyor and scraper chain conveyor

Trough chain and scraper chain conveyors for your conveyed goods

Scraper and trough chain conveyors belong to the family of chain conveyors. Chain conveyors with a trough are mechanical conveying systems for the continuous transport of materials such as bulk goods (continuous conveyors) and differ only minimally from scraper conveyors. In trough chain conveyors, a chain with so-called carriers runs on both sides of a closed trough. The material can be conveyed horizontally, uphill or vertically, depending on the orientation and shape of the flights. In scraper chain conveyors, the conveyor trough is open at the top. This means that the bulk material can only be conveyed with a slight incline or horizontally with the help of chains. Scraper chain machines are more suitable for smaller or lighter materials and goods such as straw or chips. The chain conveyors are a particularly suitable solution for more high-load applications and larger or bulky materials such as occurring in shredder waste, household and industrial waste.
