Spiroflow has launched the heavy-duty Chainflow tubular chain drag conveyor to meet evolving industry needs. This conveyor is more robust than medium-duty cable drag conveyors and a more economical alternative to ultra heavy-duty structural link and pin chain drag systems.
Chainflow provides gentle handling of powders and granules, particularly fragile products. It is totally enclosed and dust-free, enabling processors to convey or batch ingredients utilising a hygienic disc and chain assembly.
Its light gauge stainless steel tubing is easy to install compared with the structural pipe used with ultra heavy-duty chain drag conveyors.
Chainflow is beneficial for processors because it can handle higher loads and perform long duty cycles. It has minimal product build-up as a result of the round construction and moulded discs, which means it is suitable for fine, non-smearing, powders and high-density products such as talcum powder, detergents, wood chips and pellets, recycled powders and similar reprocessed materials.
Its capacity is up to 10.5cu m/hour, and conveys over long distances, with maximum straight line lengths of up to 76m per conveyor and link multiple conveyors for longer distances. The conveyor can typically run empty, be stopped and started under load, and is flood or meter fed for operational flexibility.
