, CONVEYOR CHAINS, Makelsan Chain

Specially Produced Conveyor Chains


Conveyor chains are used to transport loads and bulk goods.

As Makelsan Chain, we offer a wide range of conveyor chains for different purposes. Most conveyor chains used in the industry are not standard chains, therefore, as Makelsan Chain, we offer conveyor chains that are specially produced according to customer specifications.

Fixed bush conveyor chains are often used for conveying tasks involving long distances and relatively low speeds. Rotary Api chains for heavy-duty applications feature crank links for greater flexibility and improved cushioning against heavy impacts.

Conveyor chains are the most versatile type amongs all and our product range reflects this versatility. Bucket conveyor chains, roller conveyor chains, hollow pin chains, scraper chains, special conveyor chains and rotary chains for the paper industry are some of the conveyor chains we manufacture. . Our chain assortment also includes conveyor chains with a wide variety of custom straight, curved or U-shaped attachments and much more.

Conveyor Chain Types

FV series ( DIN 8165 ) scraper chains, M series ( DIN 8167 ) scraper chains, Rotary chains, long pitch FVT and MT series chains are conveyor chains in our production in different varieties.

Scraper conveyors are high-performance conveying machines for the horizontal and ascending transport of very different materials.

A scraper conveyor is a material transportation device utilizing a continuous, driven chain circuit equipped with regularly spaced cross members. The chain travels through an channel or trough which prevents the transported materials from falling off the conveyor while the cross members drag or “scrape” them forward to the discharge point. Scraper conveyors are typically used for coarse, heavy materials such as raw coal, iron ore, cast metal parts, and metal scrap. The design is ideal for slower transportation speeds over short distances, on moderate inclines, or even in submerged applications. This type of conveyor is typically more cost effective to install and maintain than a belt conveyor of similar capacity and length.

Chain conveyors use an endless chain both to transmit power and to propel material through a trough, either pushed directly by the chain or by attachments to the chain. The chain runs over sprockets at either end of the trough. … The load is positioned on the chains, the friction pulls the load forward.

The primary purpose of the scraper is to prevent material carry back on the conveyor system. By reducing material carry back, the conveyors can run more efficiently by having fewer breakdowns and lower running costs. Efficient and correctly adjusted scrapers save the plant operator time and money.
