Hyquip Drag Chain Conveyors or En masse conveyors are designed ruggedly for dependable and continuous duty conditions using a single or double strand. They are envisaged to handle highly abrasive materials like ash, coal, limestone and other materials at elevated temperature with the use of special alloy materials in the construction of drag chain conveyors.
Features of Drag Chain Conveyors :
Heavy duty construction : The casings are built from heavy guage steel plates for providing structural rigidity and long service. All the flange connections are sealed to ensure material contaminating the environment.
Forged Steel Chain : The drop forged pin-and-fork type chain is made from various special alloys and hardened for extended life and minimising wear.
Sprockets : The sprockets are of a unique design, fabricated / cast from carbon steel for self cleaning action and are hardened for longer service.
Heavy duty flights : The flights / materials are selected to suit specific requirement of applications and are generally bolt-on type for ease of replacement.
Catenary take up : This kind of take ups are provided to accommodate thermal expansion of chain in high temperature applications.
Adjustable tail end take up : Facilitates internal tension of chain and flights; compensates for normal wear and elongation of chain, and also facilitates replacement of chain.
Inspection door : Provided at all easy access locations for regular inspection. They are fully gasketed for dust proof construction.
