Tubular Drag Conveyors

Technical Details: Chainflow Chain Drag Conveyors

Spiroflow's Chainflow tubular chain drag conveyor is the newest mechanical conveying option in our extensive line of mechanical conveyors.

The Chainflow tubular chain drag conveyor is a hygienic, heavy duty conveyor ideal for conveying dry, cold, hot (up to 180°F/82°C) powders and granules. It is particularly suited for conveying fragile materials such as cereals, nuts, coffee beans, food ingredients, pet food, animal feed, a wide variety of chemicals and plastics.

Chain & Discs

The 304 stainless steel chain is fitted with 4" (100mm) diameter molded food grade UHMWPE discs every 5" (125mm). Molding the discs directly onto the chain minimizes crevices where material can accumulate. The chain can be upgraded to 316 stainless steel.

Additional Components & Options

90° Idler Housing is an alternative to a 90° bend. It allows for tighter radii and quick access to the corner and/or discharge housing and sprocket.

Pneumatic Inlet Baffle aids in the control of material into the conveyor.

Inlet Options Multiple inlets can be fitted with manual or pneumatic baffles, inlet chute lids, electric or pneumatic vibration, hoppers, agitators, lump breakers, extended capacity chutes, and dust hoods. As always, custom designs are also available.

Multiple Outlets are available for this conveyor.

A Drain is available for cleaning.

Chain Vibrator is a reciprocating hammer used to shake material from the chain and prevent product carry over at each outlet on the system including in-line valves.

Static Grounding Conductive equipment is inter-connected to prevent sparking.

Sight Glass allows an operator to observe the chain, discs, and material as it moves through the conveyor.

Controls Standard controls are available with or without a VFD. They include a NEMA 4 carbon steel enclosure with a lockable disconnect, emergency stop, power on & run lights, micro PLC controls for all functions, AUTO and HAND modes. Custom controls are always available.
