Drag Conveyors

Drag conveyors are used in a wide variety of applications including mining, agriculture, or any applications were the product is fragile, easily segregated or high in moisture content. Drag conveyors can be installed to run horizontally, inclined or a combination of both. Bulk materials are conveyed between the flights at virtually any angle with little or no product segregation or degradation, assuring positive movement during operation.

Electro-Sensors' Speed Switches are used on Drag Conveyors to monitor critical speed, and guard against slowdown or stoppage that can result in costly process downtime, machine damage, and material waste. Speed Switch Tutorial.

Ratemeters and Tachometers are commonly used in this type of application to display the RPM of the conveyor.
