A chain conveyor is a type of conveyor system for moving material through production lines
Chain conveyors utilize a powered continuous chain arrangement, carrying a series of single pendants The chain arrangement is driven by a motor, and the material suspended on the pendants are conveyed Chain conveyors are used for moving products down an assembly line and/or around a manufacturing or warehousing facility
Chain conveyors are primarily used to transport heavy unit loads, e.g. pallets, grid boxes, and industrial containers These conveyors can be single or double chain strand in configuration The load is positioned on the chains, the friction pulls the load forward
We supply Chain Conveyors, which are mainly used in conjunction with roller conveyors to handling cartons, bins in warehouses. Our chain conveyors provide good positive drive and are an economical way of transporting goods. The chain conveyors generally have double or triple strands of chains running over fabricated frames.Features :
Slat Conveyors are used when rapid speed and accuracy is essential
Stainless Steel options are often found in Food, Pharmaceutical, Processing & Packaging Industries
However Mild Steel versions can equally transport heavy duty products
Benefits : Supplied complete with a full product warrantee for parts and labour.
Fabricated in Stainless Steel and mounted on a S/S framework making Garud Automation Slat Band Conveyors extremely hygienic enabling a complete wash down facility.
Specification : Slats options include manufactured in heat resistant plastic (Acetal ) or Stainless Steel allowing them to be used for heat drying process applications giving long lasting dependable performance.
Supplied in fixed or variable speed drives with or without side guides. Usually mounted on tripod style legs which can have an adjustable height facility.
Low friction of Slats make ideal systems for lablelling and packaging industry.
That is not a problem most of our slats are supplied to the food industry. The frame would need to be fabricated in Stainless Steel at a food grade quality.
Yes Slat Conveyors are able to go round corners rule of thumb is a chain can be turned round a center line of 610mm.

This is not really the best type of conveyor for a incline please refer to our modular belt conveyors. A slight incline is achievable with no flights.
Very easy it can be replaced in minutes.
Slats are available in stainless steel and plastic so yes it is possible to transport raw products on our slat conveyors.
Yes once bedded in the slats will have stretched remove a link to eliminate this.
