Pipe chain conveyor systems

Pipe chain conveyor systems

Pipe chain conveyor system is a continuous conveying system for conveying bulk materials such as powder, small particles and small lumps, which can be transported horizontally, inclined and vertically in combination. In the closed pipe, the material is driven along the pipe with the chain piece as the driving member. When conveyed horizontally, the material particles are subject to the thrust of the chain piece in the direction of movement. When the internal friction between the material layer is greater than the external friction between the material and the pipe wall, the material moves forward with the chain piece to form a stable material flow; when conveying vertically, the material particles in the pipe are pushed upward by the chain piece, because the lower feeding prevents the upper material from sliding downward, which produces transverse lateral pressure, and so enhances the internal friction of the material, and when the internal friction between the material is greater than the external friction between the material and the wall of the pipe and the material's self-weight, the material is conveyed upward with the chain piece to form a steady material flow. When the internal friction between the materials is greater than the external friction between the materials and the inner wall of the tube as well as the self-weight of the materials, the materials will be conveyed upwards with the chain sheet, forming a continuous material flow.



1、Pipe chain conveyor has simple and compact structure and can be arranged horizontally, vertically, curved or three-dimensionally.

2、The pipe can be completely closed type conveying, no dust spillage, high efficiency and environmental protection.

3、In the process of material conveying, under the same conveying capacity, the pipe chain has the lowest energy consumption, which can minimise the running cost.

4、Less maintenance, low maintenance cost, long service life.

5、Small friction, minimise noise.

6、Materials can be conveyed completely, no residue in the conveying pipe.

7、Slow running speed, can maximise the integrity of the material.

8、It can realise explosion-proof design and air-tight design.

9、It can start with heavy load with material.

10、Other advantages of pipe chain conveyor



1、Pipe chain conveyor has simple and compact structure, and can be arranged horizontally, vertically, curved or three-dimensionally.

2、According to the user's site conditions, it can be used for feeding and discharging materials at multiple ports, so as to realise a set of pipe chain, multi-point feeding and discharging materials at multiple points.

3、The raw material conveyed from the inlet to the outlet flange has been in a sealed state, the transport can ensure that no dust leakage into the environment.

4、There is no need to set dust collector at the outlet, simple exhaust can meet the requirements of modern enterprises on environmental protection.

5、The raw materials are transported along the pipe smoothly in the middle of two discs, basically there is no friction, so the materials are less broken, and the slow curve conveying makes very few materials will be broken.

6、Pipe chain conveyor adopts special customised conveying discs, which have very low friction coefficient, high wear resistance and stable conveying.

7, The pipe chain conveyor adopts self-developed calculation programme, which makes the conveyor keep the necessary static friction and tension force in different parts of the conveyor, such as the conveyor pipe and elbow, and provides highly accurate data for the design of low-noise and low-wear pipe chain conveyor.



Different materials and different processes require different conveying systems. With rich experience and reliable equipment, Ferguson engineers provide you with energy-saving, environmentally friendly, stable and reliable material conveying systems with rigorous and innovative design. Carbon steel and stainless steel materials are available, and explosion-proof, water-cooled and nitrogen-protected models are available.
