Chain conveyors utilize a powered continuous chain arrangement, carrying a series of single pendants. The chain arrangement is driven by a motor, and the material suspended on the pendants is conveyed. Chain conveyors are used for moving products down an assembly line around a manufacturing or warehousing facility.
Chain conveyors are primarily used to transport heavy unit loads, e.g. pallets, grid boxes, and industrial containers. These conveyors can be single or double chain strand in configuration. The load is positioned on the chains; the friction pulls the load forward. Chain conveyors are generally easy to install and have very minimum maintenance for users
