Drag chain belt conveyors are a type of belt conveyor that use chains to move material. These conveyors are often used in applications where the product needs to be moved quickly and/or where there is a lot of noise. Additionally, drag chain belt conveyors can be used in harsh environments where other types of belt conveyors may not be able to operate.


How Do Drag Chain Belt Conveyors Work?

Drag chain belt conveyors work by using chains to move the material. The chains are connected to a sprocket, which is then connected to a motor. The motor turns the sprocket, which causes the chains to move and move the material.
