En Masse Style Horizontal Chain Conveyors...
For over 20 years, Sackett-Waconia has been making en masse style horizontal chain conveyors for fertilizer. Our family of en masse chain conveyors provide low horsepower, low maintenance, light weight, conveying of fertilizers and other dry bulk materials. Their totally enclosed design seals in dust and allows for indoor or outdoor installation.
En masse conveyors work by pulling a strand of flighted chain through the lower portion of a square body of bulk material. As this lower layer is pulled along, friction holds the particles together, making the top move with the bottom. This allows for a shallow bed of material to convey a large cross-section of material. This design, is very gentle on handled materials, guaranteeing minimal product degradation.
Especially suited for corrosive environments, these conveyors feature stainless steel casings and return rails. The UHMW conveying flights have a very low coefficient of friction, and are highly resistant to abrasion.
Several discharge gate options are available, including manual, air, and electric operation. Gates are long to minimize carry-over, and each includes a chain cleaner to sweep the chain as it passes the gate.
If there is one underlying principle to our engineering and fabrication, it’s to NEVER compromise safety. All Sackett-Waconia equipment meets or exceeds OSHA regulations, and we will work with you to ensure any site or company specific requirements or concerns are met and addressed. Safety is a primary feature of every Sackett-Waconia System.
