TCG - Chain Conveyors

Project Description

Description - Chain or Drag Conveyors are designed for conveying dry solids such as free flowing powders, granules, pellets and flakes. The hot-galvanised flanged casing consists of a tail and a head section, as well as a number of modular intermediate sections. The tail and the head section contain drag and transmission roller. The design facilitates assembly and maintenance. The drive unit is coupled on the drag roller by means of a direct geared motor or a chain transmission. Depending on the characteristics of the material handled and on the throughput rate required, the conveyor chain may be manufactured from blank and bent links or forged with pressed links. The chain guide is made of Polyzene or manganese steel depending on the application.

Function - TCG Chain Conveyors have been especially designed for conveying cereals, flour or similar materials. The product is dragged and conveyed by rectangular shaped flights along the bottom of the casing. The flights are fixed beneath a guided chain. The conveyor enables material discharge in different points through intermediate outlet spouts equipped with electrically operated slide gates especially designed for this purpose. Apart from various industrial processes, TCG Chain Conveyors are widely used in storage plants for cereals and similar products.
