Chain Conveyors are an essential part of many conveying and storage systems, they are used for general movement and distribution of bulk materials as well as in hopper discharge applications. Guttridge chain conveyors have been continuously developed over many years and are available in four popular configurations - Single Strand, Twin Trace Shrouded, Soft Flight and Superflow. The modular design ensures easy assembly, installation and maintenance, allowing any configuration to be easily and quickly built up to suit a customer's exact requirements.
In general most free flowing powders, grains, flakes and pellets can be successfully handled with a chain conveyor. Selection of the conveyor and chain type depends on the material characteristics, throughput and application, although degradation and abrasiveness may also be important. Upwards and downwards bend sections are available for some configurations and the machines are available in stainless steel, galvanised or painted mild steel construction to suit customer requirements.
