Drag Conveyor for Dry Bulk Handling Applications
Drag conveyors are best used in dust tight environments that feature materials that are abrasive, hot, corrosive or high in density. This can include lime, coal, biomass, zinc, wood, ash, or other dry products in bulk. Rapat Bulk Handling Gerber Drag Conveyor maintains blends and protects fragile products. The enclosed system is dust tight, hygienic in design and construction, gentle action, and explosion proof versions are available. Drag conveyors are a great complement to screw conveyors and belt conveyors and a requirement of many bulk material handling applications. Drag conveyors can be used to transfer bulk materials from one process to another and are ideal for handling dry, free flowing materials. Materials are static and move en-mass by paddles or chain. The drag conveyor requires less horsepower than belt or screw conveyors.
With minimal product degradation during conveying, the Rapat Bulk Handling Gerber Drag Conveyor can enhance your bulk material handling operation. Contact the experts at Thomas Conveyor to help design your next drag conveyor system.
