The conveyor chain is the decisive factor for the functionality of each bulk material conveyor system. Only if this conveyor chain can cope with the high strains can a conveyor system run economically. For this reason, FörderTec use a welding and production procedure for conveyor chains which is far superior to the quality and lifetime of normal chains. These forked lug chains are suitable for any application, even in the most adverse conditions.
High-quality materials and special processing methods make our conveyor chains so stable and fail-safe:
Advantage 1: The welding procedure:
Flash-butt welding procedures guarantee a long lifetime. In addition, chain link bolt carbide inserts protect against wear during material conveyance.
Advantage 2: The material:
Utilisation of high-quality materials
Case hardening steel 16 MnCr 5 - 1.7131
Tempered steel 42 CrMo 4 - 1.7225
Special material available on request
Advantage 3: Individual sizes:
The forked lug chain can be adapted to the trough widths and is therefore suitable for any bulk material
Spacing: FörderTec chains are produced in the standard spacing of 142 mm; any other spacing is of course possible
Fork width: The normal design is sufficient for many bulk materials; the reinforced version has improved stability even at extreme loads
Driver shapes: The utilisation of 6 different driver forms provides the perfect solution for any conveyed materials, the line guidance on the troughed chain conveyor and for the required conveying capacity.
