Transfer & Slat Conveyors

Transfer conveyors

body

Our transfer conveyor bodies are constructed in a “U” box design like our drags. We incorporate 1″ thick Ni-Hard, casted liners. These bolt-in liners are “L” shaped and encompass the floor and side liners all in one.

sprockets

Segmented sprockets are available with various pitch chains. Segmented sprockets allow for in-place change outs. Sprockets are hardened for extended life.

diverter gates

Our flop gate design is bolted onto the main body of the transfer, allowing for easy maintenance. We have also designed our gates to be completely removed from the body.

design options

We offer Rexnord chain in a 4” pitch or 6” pitch. 4140 alloy shafting is used on the head and tail shafts to ensure optimal strength. Catwalks are available as needed. For single-sided catwalks, grease lines are installed on the idler bearings and plumbed to the catwalk side for easy access. Electric or hot-oil heat is available.

slat conveyors

slat features

We use Rexnord chain with ¾” x 8″ A36 weld-in slats. 4140 alloy shafting is used on the head and tail shafts to ensure optimal strength. Floating idler shafts allow movement as needed, increasing wear life on the consumable components. Single or dual catwalks are available. For single-sided catwalks, grease lines are installed on the idler bearings and plumbed to the catwalk side for easy access. Electric or hot-oil heat is available.

Hydraulic Chain Tensioner

The hydraulically operated, chain tensioning system is done at the head shaft. This makes it easier versus other mechanical ways of adjustment. Threaded rod is used to anchor the adjustment. We also use a positive clamp design on the bearing float plate to eliminate floating movement at the head shaft.

Segmented Sprockets

Segmented sprockets and split-hubs are used on the drag chain. Segmented sprockets allow for in-place change outs. We engineered our split hub design to withstand the constant abuse thus eliminating hub failure. Sprockets are hardened for extended life.

ni-hard Liners

The slat conveyor body is a “U” form design with built-in camber. We incorporate 1″ thick Ni-Hard casted liners. These bolt-in liners are “L” shaped and encompass the floor and side liners all in one.
