A chain drag conveyor is a type of conveyor system used for bulk material handling. It consists of a series of parallel chains with flights or paddles attached to them, which move materials along a horizontal or inclined path. The chains are driven by a motor, and the flights drag the material along the bottom of the conveyor.
Chain drag conveyor(s) are commonly used to transport abrasive or heavy materials, such as coal, ore, and gravel. They are also used in industrial settings for conveying bulk materials in high-volume applications, such as in agriculture, mining, and construction.
Some advantages of chain drag conveyors include their ability to handle heavy loads and their durability in harsh environments. They also have low maintenance requirements and can operate at high temperatures. However, they may require more power to operate than other types of conveyors and can generate more dust and noise.
