Chain Conveyors & Intakes

Chain Conveyors are an essential part of most conveying and storage systems, used for general movement and distribution of bulk materials as well as bulk intake and hopper discharge applications. Being simple and robust in design and easily maintained, they provide low cost, efficient handling equipment with many applications in manufacturing and processing factories. Perry of Oakley Chain Conveyors operate across the world in a wide variety of markets, from grains, feeds and foods to oilseeds, biomass, waste and minerals.

Chain Conveyor configurations and chain types

In general most free flowing and semi-free flowing powders, grains, flakes and pellets can be successfully handled with a chain conveyor. Selection of the conveyor configuration and chain type depends on the material characteristics, throughput and application, although degradation and abrasiveness may also be important.  The specifications of the standard range can be tailored to suit:

  • brittle, fragile materials
  • tough, abrasive materials
  • damp or sticky materials
  • certain aggressive environments
