Chain conveyor

Compact and versatile

Trough and drag chain conveyors

Dry, powdered, free-flowing, granular, small-sized or flaky bulk materials are transported effortlessly by our chain conveyors. The systems are perfectly suited for grain sizes from 0 to 300 mm, but can also be designed for coarser grain sizes or for transporting hot bulk materials.

When it comes to large conveying volumes in the wood industry, our systems are the right solution: Depending on the properties of the material to be conveyed, our drag chain conveyor (KKF) impresses with a high conveying capacity of up to 1,700 m3/h. The trough chain conveyor achieves a maximum conveying capacity of up to 510 m3/h.

A real all-rounder: our chain conveyors allow the conveying process to be coupled with other processes, for example for discharging, dosing, collecting, distributing, screening and cooling conveyed goods.

A strong duo

Trough and drag chain conveyors for the wood industry

We offer you two chain conveyors that meet the highest quality requirements: Both our trough chain conveyor (TKF) and our drag chain conveyor (KKF) are designed for the ascending transport of large conveying quantities. Ideal conditions, therefore, for use in the wood processing sector!

The advantages of both chain conveyors include:

  • Conveying of dusts, granulates, powders, sludges and problematic coarse-grained materials.
  • High conveying capacity up to 700 m3/h (KKF) or 510 m3/h (TKF)
  • Flexible line design and suitable for long conveying distances up to 100 meters (TKF) 60 m (KKF)
  • Low space requirement
  • Material feed and discharge at any desired point
  • Transport of hot materials up to 400 °C
  • Sifting, cooling and dosing possible
  • Absolutely dust-tight, pressure-shock-proof and gas-tight realizable
  • Low maintenance requirements

Product variations:

Ideal for ascending transport

Trough chain conveyor

Trough chain conveyors are continuous conveyors. They can be used to transport almost all materials that do not stick to the floor by means of single- or double-strand conveyor chains. And in several directions at the same time: horizontally, vertically or even diagonally.

Our trough chain conveyors are dust-free and environmentally friendly. They are also gas-tight. Their most important advantages are the small space requirement and the high conveying capacity. They are indispensable in the timber industry, especially for the uphill transport of large quantities.

Completely without dust

Drag chain conveyor

The drag chain conveyor is designed for the dust-free and ascending transport of large quantities of bulk materials. It is preferably used for transporting large quantities and on long conveying distances (up to 60 m). Choose from two different products:

Our drag chain conveyor with link chain for OSB was specially developed for conveying OSB strands. It achieves a maximum conveying capacity of up to 1,700 m3/h. Our drag chain conveyor with fork chain is optimized for conveying sawdust, wood chips, recycling material, OSB strands and bark and conveys up to 1,500 m3/h.

Optimised for you

Chain conveyors: Areas of application
