Drag Conveyor Engineering Guide: Introduction

The KWS Dragon-Flite drag conveyor can be your best production booster. It efficiently transfers bulk materials faster and smoother without damaging, agitating or tumbling to keep your production pace flowing. Dragon-Flite has been designed for high performance and low maintenance. The Dragon-Flite is available in both Industrial Duty and Mill Duty to meet your specific application requirements.
