Scraper chip conveyors - drag flight DFC
Conveyors ideal for small, broken chips and cast iron chips
The scraper chip conveyors are equipped with a drag flight (scraper) chain. The small, broken chips fall on the conveyor bottom, which is made of a highly wear-resistant sheet metal (HARDOX), and are scraped off in a prepared collecting bin (tipping waste skips).
We offer the following pitches of the drag flight chain elements:
- 1.5" (38.1 mm). Height of the load part of the conveyor from 118 mm.
- 2.5" (63.5 mm). Special chain for heavy duty operations and long conveyors.
The tracks of the drag flight chain are made from and the bottom reinforced with special wear-resistant material. This is how we significantly distinguish from some very cheap competitive products with short life cycle.
Scraper conveyors and cast iron versus aluminum chips.
In some cases, the cast iron chips are very similar to fine dust. Thanks to special wiping cleats, our conveyors can deal with these.
In case you are using a scraper conveyor for chips from aluminum, there is danger that these chips can flow with the liquid to the pumps and damage them. Long aluminum chips can get tangled in the head shaft. On the contrary, the hinged steel belt chip conveyors capture the majority of these chips with their belts. Please contact us if you are not sure a scraper chip conveyor is suitable for you.
How do I simply choose a correct conveyor type?
In addition, we offer the following for optimum operation of the scraper conveyors:
- Electric equipment and control – switchboards on customer's request.
- Pumps, gauge glass, level gauges, skimmers of oil from liquid surface, etc.
- Height and volume optimized tipping waste skips – containers for chips.
- Filtration systems for filtering coolant emulsions and cutting oils.
- And 12 other advantages.
Connect the scraper conveyors and our:
You will get a complete system for chip removal and filtration of coolant emulsions or cutting oils.
The design of our scraper conveyors allows changing the scraper conveyor to a hinged steel belt chip conveyor by the simple replacement of the conveyor chain for the metal hinge belt and changing the direction of engine revolutions.
