Chain Conveyors are used when bulk material is conveyed in an inclined angle. They are appropriate for conveying various materials that can be powdery, dusty and granular bulk materials. The sealed frame structure of a Chain Conveyor ensures that the conveyed material will not leak or spill out of the conveyor. In addition, Chain Conveyors withstand extreme temperatures and are highly customizable.
Laitex’s modularly designed Chain Conveyors ensure easy and minor maintenance as well as extreme reliability in special conditions. Our Chain Conveyors are flexibly tailored according to the properties of the conveyed materials, capacity, and distance.
