Modern Process Equipment: Chain-Vey

Superior Performance

Flexible System Designs

  • Product design allows custom configurations with multiple inlets and discharges for complete flexible process systems
  • Ability to convey both horizontally and vertically in a single system
  • Extended horizontal and vertical system length capabilities
  • High-strength chain design allows the conveyor to start and stop under load

  • “Z” System - 180° Tensioning Turnaround Unit highlighted
    180° Tensioning Turnaround Unit

    180° Tensioning Turnaround Unit

    Keeps the chain tensioned within the system and adjusts as the conveyor is loaded and unloaded with product.  Configurable with either internal or external tension adjustment.

  • “Z” System - Product Inlet with Optional Flow Baffle highlighted
    Product Inlet with Optional Flow Baffle

    Product Inlet with Optional Flow Baffle

    The entry point of product into the conveying system.  Can incorporate flow control baffles to set product fill level and prevent shearing.

  • “Z” System - Double-Pipe Floor Support highlighted
    Double-Pipe Floor Support

    Double-Pipe Floor Support

    Used to support the piping and maintain the set center-to-center distance.  The stand includes threaded leveling mounts that allow for vertical pipe adjustment.

  • “Z” System - Product Sight Glass highlighted
    Product Sight Glass

    Product Sight Glass

    Enables viewing during conveying and is made from a clear polycarbonate with the same dimensions as the stainless steel piping.

  • “Z” System - Sweep Elbow highlighted
    Sweep Elbow

    Sweep Elbow

    Used for gentle changes in pipe direction, sweep elbows are specially bent from seamless pipe to precise dimensional tolerances and uniform concentricity. Based on requirements, elbows are available in a variety of angles and radii for complete flexibility of your system layout.

  • “Z” System - Double-Pipe Ceiling Support highlighted
    Double-Pipe Ceiling Support

    Double-Pipe Ceiling Support

    Designed for suspension from the ceiling using threaded rod or cable and keep piping at the set center-to-center distance.

  • “Z” System - Compression Coupling highlighted
    Compression Coupling

    Compression Coupling

    Standard pipe connections use 4-bolt compression couplings with an internal EPDM gasket and metal grounding strip.

  • “Z” System - 180° Drive Unit highlighted
    180° Drive Unit

    180° Drive Unit

    Used in conjunction with the 180° turnaround unit, the drive unit pulls the chain through the drive unit by an electric gearmotor powered sprocket. The drive unit may be run in either direction for single or bi-directional system configurations. The drive unit is installed at the end of the circuit system and is typically used as the final or only discharge point.

  • “Z” System - Discharge Transition highlighted
    Discharge Transition

    Discharge Transition

    Custom-designed to your application, discharge transitions are supplied to funnel product from discharge points to the desired flange connection or discharge spout.
