Belt Chain Conveyor

Belt chain conveyor is a particular type of equipment with a conveyor belt. It is only responsible for carrying the load. The pulling force is transmitted by chains of different lengths.

When the belt runs on the upper band, it moves on rollers mounted on top of a frame. On the bottom band, the chain-driven conveyor transports the goods by running chains on wear-resistant steel bands. The belt runs on guide rails.

On the belt section, loads can be conveyed at an inclination of up to 30 (and even 33) degrees. The curvature radius is at least 4 m and is sometimes increased to 8 m or more. The width of the conveyor band varies from 65 to 100 centimetres. In 60 minutes, 300-500 tonnes of payload are transported.

Two types of conveyors are manufacture:
  1. With rigid connection of chains to the belt surface;
  2. With a friction connection.
In the case of friction coupling, the force on the working part is transmitted by friction force. The chains themselves are driven by a gear motor. In all offers, including the pallet chain conveyor, a bush roller chain is used. The belt is made in such a way that no bonding is required for its mounting. Structural types of steel are used to produce the main parts of the conveyor.
