Modern chain conveyors move the grain with the metal scrapers on the chain. The main characteristic of the Mysilo conveyors is a usage of the covers made of ultra-high molecular – weight polyethylene (UHMW). It provides minimum grain damage during the transportation. Also mechanical effect of the scrappers on the floor reduces. To protect the floor of the conveyor, it’s possible to install the cover from such polyethylene (UHMW).
The chain conveyor is used for the movement of the grain , feed-stuff seeds and other dry products movement in a horizontal direction. It is the main part of any processing and in storage grain complex. Unlike the augers, the conveyors transport the grain more carefully. The conveyors can be mounted on the ground level or above the silos on the supporting structure.
Maximum length –70 m
Efficiency – from 25 up to 100 t/h
Thank to a simple construction, the mounting and the maintenance are easy. The body conveyor is protected by the galvanizing. The scrapers have the special polyethylene laps, protected the grain and the bottom of the conveyor from the damages.
Also the bottom of the conveyor can be covered with the polyethylene, that helps to increase the service life. The usage of the drive with the helical gear provides the reliable work for a long time.
All of the necessary control systems are installed on the chain conveyor: speed control sensor, the chain tension control sensor, the sensor of the obstruction product. These safety devices help to find a trouble; turn it off to avoid the serious damages.
The conveyor is a metal box with a rectangular cross-section. The chain with the scrappers moves the grain along the body. There are a loading place in the cover of the box and an unloading place on the bottom. The grain passes in a horizontal direction.
