Chain Pallet Conveyors
Powered chain conveyor systems for pallet and large parts handling.
Industrial chain conveyors can be used not just to transport pallets but also transport large or long heavy or light loads. Pallet chain conveyors or “Drag chain conveyors” as they are sometimes known, can be a cost effective alternative to roller based systems. They are useful for long products that can span two or more lanes of chain rather than very wide rollers.
The chains are very robust and travel at the same speed due to a common drive shaft. There are many chain designs available with different widths, link types and even some with internal rollers to help movement. Also some chains offer product protective surfaces by the means of chain attachments and these same attachments can act as pushers or locators. The use of rollers inside the chains can also create zero back pressure for accumulation.
