How a tubular drag conveyor works
A tubular drag conveyor gets its name from the tubular housing that encloses a continuous chain. A drive sprocket inside a drive assembly engages the chain at the turn located at the conveying leg's end, and circular discs called flights are attached to the chain at regular intervals. The flight material is UHMWPE. This material possesses excellent physical as well as frictional properties at the same time lighter in weight most inert to various products to be conveyed, provide a quick release of sticky materials without wearing the conveyor bends and housing
Tubular Cable Conveyors (also known as Disc Conveyors and Drag Conveyors) gently slide bulk materials through smooth stainless steel tubing using low-friction polymer discs attached to the stainless steel cable. The discs and cable are driven by a Geared drive connected with a sprocket wheel at one end and a sprocket wheek with tensioner at the other end. This design allows single or multiple inlets and outlets, and the routing of conveyor tubing horizontally, vertically, or at any angle, through small holes in walls or ceilings. Because components are modular, inlets and outlets can be added, removed, or relocated, and the circuit lengthened, shortened or re-routed as needs change.
A tubular drag conveyor's lower electrical power consumption means it has much lower operating costs and as a result, a much lower long-term ownership cost. Low maintenance cost, Very smooth, silent operation, No dust filter requirement.Multiple feeds and discharge points
