Drag conveyors are designed to convey a high volume of material requiring much smaller amounts of space. Material is moved as a large mass with no internal turbulence, at low speeds. The high capacity and lack of turbulence allows the drag conveyor to handle almost all types of bulk material and can be used to meter or transfer bulk materials from one process to another. The design allows drag conveyors to fit almost any plant layout. Minimal long term maintenance and durability are characteristics of a drag conveyor.
