Standard Bulk-Flo™ Features
- All conveyor sections are pre-assembled on a level 215ft fixtures, match-marked and dowel-pinned for field assembly. With proper rigging practices, Intermediate Sections can be assembled and shipped in multiples of up to 40 ft. lengths, saving on field time.
- ~3 mils Powder Coat finish. The finish has a good hardness, excellent flexibility, excellent exterior stability, good chemical and solvent resistance, and a very good corrosion protection. All parts are powder coated before assembly. All fasteners are cadmium plated.
- Drives are pre-assembled with the oil bath chain case fitted and removed for shipment.
- Oil bath chain cases are split with two top inspection doors, one over each sprocket.
- All liners use 1/2' welded studs attached to the exterior of the liner plates to eliminate wear points on the inside of the liners.
- Head and tail housing assemblies are split for easy access.
- Out-board mounted bearings on the head section.
- Rex ZT center pull take-up bearings on the tail section. Shaft seals are a Rino adjustable 'packing-gland' split type.
- 'G' style head sections come with a plug relief door and switch.
- All internal conveyor sprockets are split and hardened to ~420 BHN. Split sprockets can be 'turned around' for double life. 'Walking Tooth Sprockets' used where applicable.
- Conveyor chains are all Cotter-constructed for ease of removal. All links are pre-heated prior to robotic welding of the attachment bars.
- Conveyor 'By-Pass' inlets have a bolted side plate construction to ease removal/replacement of the internal liner plates without removal of the feed spout and or transition.
- All intermediate sections are pinned and robotically welded in fixtures to ensure squareness and length.
