Drag Conveyors

“A conveyor without a belt”. Often used for moving fine powder or aggregates, the conveyor consists of a series of blades that “sweep” the product along an enclosed channel. This technique is useful in situations where a fine powdered product might overflow/spill from a conventional belt, or clog up the drive mechanisms.
