5" or 127 mm Tube Chain Conveyor

Up to 1,000 ft3/hr or 28 m3/hr

5" or 127 mm diameter tube chain conveyors are made with Schedule 10 stainless steel tubing with an inner diameter of 5" or 127 mm. They're popular for moving pet food, breakfast cereal, in-shell peanuts, whole walnuts and cashews. A single 5" diameter conveyor can transport 25 super sacks' worth of product in an hour. The strength of Chain-Vey allows for very long runs, high verticals, and the ability to start from full loads without risk of chain breaking. The gentle nature of tube chain conveyors means your product will not break during conveyance.
