Drag Conveyor Design Standards

Round Bottom Drag Conveyor Design Standards

The KWS Industrial Duty drag conveyor is designed for high performance, low maintenance conveying. With a durable, heavy-gauge trough for greater strength and structural rigidity, each drag conveyor is designed for increased production and longer life. The chain take-up is located standard on the head section, but also available on the tail section. Extra-heavy trough end flanges are standard for all sizes. KWS’ unique self-cleaning design is also standard. Below are the design standards for round bottom drag conveyors.
