Discharge Chain Conveyor

Discharge chain conveyors are installed at bunker outlet points or directly in boiler hoppers. The dimensioning and construction of the large inlet opening require detailed knowledge.


Chain conveyor are continuous conveyors and are suited for the conveyance of bulk products of all kind up to small-sized products and sludges. The advantages are its excellent temperature resistance (up to 800°C), the low conveying velocities, particularly in case of abrasive bulk material, and the robust and dustproof design.
