NEW PRODUCT: Double Barrel Chain Conveyor System

Sudenga is proud to introduce the newest member of our chain conveyor line, a tubular style chain conveyor we like to call the Double Barrel.


Consider using this double run conveyor system in your next grain handling project.

Traditional horizontal and incline drag chain conveyors are a long established product line for Sudenga Industries.  Sudenga is proud to introduce the newest member of our chain conveyor line, a tubular style chain conveyor we like to call the Double Barrel.

Chain conveyors, also called en-masse conveyors, are generally known to offer durability, low relative horsepower requirements, and high material moving capacities. The Sudenga Double Barrel is no exception. Double Barrel systems combine the benefits of a traditional chain conveyor, while enabling this conveyor to be used where you might have typically used a traditional, but harder on the grain and less durable round or u-trough style auger.

Unlike a round tube auger, a chain conveyor doesn’t necessarily require grain in the system to run smoothly and quietly. This benefit makes the Double Barrel a great option for use with a grain dryer. The Double Barrel conveyors pair nicely in stationary applications filling a grain bin, or for inclining after a bin unloading system. They can be installed in a horizontal, or incline up to 60 degrees and don’t necessarily require a catwalk support system like a traditional conveyor might.  

If you compare the tube sizes of the Double Barrel to a comparable round auger system, you’ll find that the Double Barrel offers a higher capacity rating than a like sized round tube auger system. You can expect good clean out compared to a traditional drag chain conveyor as well. This is due to the fact that the material is being moved inside tube with a paddle which matches the tube shape.  Grain can’t sit in the corners like it would on a traditional drag conveyor.

The uses for this style of chain conveyor are numerous and Sudenga can help you visualize your next application by drawing out your proposed project layout incorporating the Double Barrel.
