What is the conveyor chain?

Summary

Today we will introduce what the conveyor chain is and what its characteristics are. This article will tell you in detail.

What is a conveyor chain:
It is suitable for conveying all kinds of boxes, bags, pallets, etc., bulk materials, small items or irregular items need to be transported on pallets or in turnover boxes. It can transport a single piece of material with a large weight, or withstand a large impact load.
What are the characteristics:
The structure and characteristics of the conveyor belt equipment with traction parts: The conveyor belt with traction parts generally includes: traction parts, load-bearing members, driving devices, tensioning devices, redirecting devices and supports. The traction parts are used to transmit traction, which can be conveyor belts, traction chains or wire ropes; the load-bearing components are used to carry materials, including hoppers, brackets or spreaders, etc.; the driving device powers the conveyor, usually by electric motors, reducers and Brake (stop) and other components; the tensioning device generally has two types of screw type and heavy hammer type, which can maintain a certain tension and sag of the traction member to ensure the normal operation of the conveyor belt; the support member is used to support the traction member or load As components, rollers, rollers, etc. can be used.

The structural characteristics of the conveyor belt equipment with traction parts are: the materials to be transported are installed in the carrying members connected with the traction parts, or directly installed on the traction parts (such as conveyor belts), and the traction parts bypass the head and tail of each roller or sprocket. Connected to form a closed loop including a loaded branch for conveying materials and an unloaded branch for not conveying materials, and the continuous movement of the traction member is used to convey the materials.

The composition and characteristics of conveyor belt equipment without traction parts: The structure and composition of conveyor belt equipment without traction parts are different, and the working components used to transport materials are also different. Their structural characteristics are: use the rotating or reciprocating movement of the working member, or use the flow of the medium in the pipeline to transport the material forward.

For example, the working component of a roller conveyor is a series of rollers, which rotates to transport materials; the working component of a screw conveyor is a spiral, which rotates in a trough to push materials along the trough; the work of a vibrating conveyor The component is a trough, which reciprocates to transport the materials placed in it.
