Trough Chain Conveyors
The drive station has flange or pedestal bearings for the drive shaft, depending on the size. Sealing is provided by grease filled, double radial shaft seals
The entire drive station together with the inspection flap can be dismounted for easy maintenance. The drive consists of a standard geared motor unit mounted on the bracket attached to the side. Suitable safety clutches can be provided to prevent overloads.
The trough consists of individual, standard-length sections with connecting flanges. Hold-down rails are recommended for most of the materials to be conveyed. These prevent the material from building up and thus the chain climbing.
For moderately abrasive materials, the side walls and base plate are protected by manganese alloy steel against wear. Fusion-cast basalt linings or liner plates with hard surface welding are recommended for use with highly abrasive materials.
