Incline (IC) drag feeding a leg from a drive over pit.

Incline Drag Chain Conveyors

Incline Drag Chain Conveyors are ideal for conveying grain from pits to legs, underground or overhead—wherever high capacities are required. Drag conveyors feature low-maintenance and low horsepower requirements per bushel compared to an auger. Galvanized construction and multiple inlet/outlet configurations ensure ease of installation and use for years of commercial use. Inclines available up to 60 degrees and capacities up to 25,000 bushels per hour.

Capacities & Dimensions

Choose a conveyor and chain speed based on capacity required. Choosing a larger conveyor running at slower speeds requires less maintenance than smaller conveyors running at faster speeds. Also, capacities can be raised later, if needed. NOTE: The angle of incline does not significantly alter capacities due to paddle design. Use the capacity figures, below, for all inclines.
