Powder- or grain-shaped material of small or middle quantity can be conveyed horizontal, inclined or vertical by means of single-strand chain conveyors. The conveying takes place in a completely dust-proof housing.
The material will be conveyed by means of many chain links and flight attachments that banded together as an endless chain strand within the trough.
The construction of the housing is very simple, because it is solid and forms a self-supporting component.
Double-strand chain conveyors with a similar design are used for middle or large quantities of bulk material.
