Portable Drag Chain

The Ranco Portable Drag Chain Conveyor is constructed of 10-gauge stainless steel. It utilizes an 18” wide heavy-duty stainless steel mesh chain that rides in a solid formed trough.  The horizontal trough sides are only 5 ½” tall, which makes it suitable for unloading rail cars and trucks. The drag chain is a self-regulating unit, which allows it to be flood fed. The conveyor has a capacity of 90 TPH based on 60pcf material.
