Chain-type tubular drag conveyors fall into two basic categories: those that use round-link chains and those that use engineered chains.

If all of the proper operating conditions exist, round-link chains may be sufficient for extremely low-duty, low-risk applications.

For everything else, we recommend something much better.
Specially designed for use in moderate- and heavy-duty material handling equipment, our engineered chains put you in the very best position to be successful.
If you’ve been using round-link chains in your tubular drag conveyors, you’re well aware of the headaches associated with:

Unwanted Twisting

Chain Failure

Material Loss

Excessive Wear

Frequent Derailment

Outer Casing Failure
