MBE Coal & Mineral Technology MBE


Chain conveyors can be used to transport any type of bulk material safely, gently, with all-round protection and with minimum space requirements. They can transport coal, sorted domestic waste, sewage sludge, filter dust, fly ash, wood chips, cement, clinker, limestone, biomass or alternative fuel.
The hot-galvanized flanged casing consists of a tail and a head section, as well as a number of modular intermediate sections. The tail and the head section contain drag and transmission roller. The design facilitates assembly and maintenance.
The drive unit is coupled on the drag roller by means of a direct geared motor or a chain transmission.
Depending on the characteristics of the material handled and on the throughput rate required, the conveyor chain may be manufactured from blank and bent links or forged with pressed links.
The chain guide is made of Polyzene or manganese steel depending on the application.

The product is dragged and conveyed by rectangular shaped flights along the bottom of the casing. The flights are fixed beneath a guided chain.  The conveyor enables material discharge in different points through intermediate outlet spouts equipped with electrically operated slide gates especially designed for this purpose.
