Saxlund Chain Conveyors - for arduous applications

The Saxlund International chain conveyor is a continuous operating machine within a bolted rectangular cross-section casing. It may be arranged horizontally or inclined with bends to suit customer requirements.

Our chain conveyors are renowned for their long service life, quiet operation and gentle handling of the bulk solid material

Operating Principle

The bulk material is fed in at the inlet/bottom end where the chain tensioning station is also fitted. The conveying chain runs on a special wear resistant floor and conveys the material through the upper or lower section to the discharge opening where it is discharged to a silo inlet or to a following conveyor. The drive station is also installed at this outlet end. The construction type of the conveyor chain is chosen and adapted according to the specific bulk material to be transported. All chain links are manufactured from high grade drop forged steel with welded flights or to suit the application. Some materials are conveyed in the lower strand and others in the upper strand according to their characteristics.

The conveying chain is driven by a chain wheel on a shaft with bearings which in turn is driven by a gear motor with roller chain drive or with shaft drive gear motor. After the material has been discharged, the empty chain returns over the guide rails back to the inlet/tensioning station. The continuous chain passes around the tail drum and back into the conveying mode. The tail drum is located in a spring loaded sliding arrangement with roller bearings. The springs are fitted on both sides and can be pre-tensioned by means of threaded rods. A rotation sensor is also fitted at the tail end.
