Trough chain conveyor

The purpose of a trough chain conveyor is to transport heavily flowing or very dusty material in a closed system. The principle of a trough chain conveyor is that the material is transported without agitation in a trough by means of a chain equipped with cleats. Our trough chain conveyors are adapted to the specific circumstances to ensure that all customer needs are covered.
