Trough chain conveyor. The distribution and collection conveyor.


The trough chain conveyor can be employed for a broad spectrum of applications. The Bhler product range includes various distribution and collection conveyors to meet the needs of any customer. The Standard Line is the ideal solution for numerous applications at grain collection points, in raw goods reception, malting plants, breweries etc. Despite its compact size, the conveyor achieves high transport capacity due to its premium-quality plate link chain, while also providing gentle handling of granular and floury bulk goods. The Sanitation Line is designed to meet the strict hygiene requirements in processing plants such as grain and animal feed mills. Bhler has equipped this special trough chain conveyor model with a self-cleaning return end and round link chain allowing it to comply completely with even the most stringent hygiene guidelines. Additionally, the automatic chain tensioning system guarantees operational reliability and shorter maintenance times. Drop-forged chain links make the Heavy-duty Line extraordinarily rugged. A high loading capacity in combination with low wear and a sturdy design are just some of the features that guarantee the quality of this system.

Trough chain conveyor. Specialized versions.


In addition to the standard versions of the trough chain conveyor, Bhler offers numerous specialized models for other bulk goods that can be employed in many different areas of production. Distribution and clearing conveyor for free-flowing products in flat storage applications. Bhlers distribution and clearing conveyors enable uniform filling and discharge of flat storage compartments of any desired height. Rugged components such as travelling gear with friction wheel ensure disturbance-free system operation. In combination with stationary or movable belt conveyors, distribution and clearing conveyors make complex logistics systems possible. Incline Line horizontal and vertical conveying in a single system. Combined horizontal and vertical conveying is the key function offered by this chain conveyor. Specially shaped chain flights across the entire cross-section of the trough allow for form-fit transport. In particular, the conveyance of sticky materials or transport between critical process steps during which the process itself cannot be interrupted (e.g. oil mills) are typical applications for the Incline Line. This chain conveyor is suitable for throughputs up to 480 t/h (wheat).

Elevators. Convenient solutions for vertical conveying.


For procedural reasons, the elevation of products is imperative in nearly all silo facilities and processing plants. Thanks to their low energy consumption, elevators supplied by Bhler are extremely economical in operation and are ideally suited for the vertical transport of bulk goods. The Standard Line, with its comprehensive package of optional equipment, is capable of handling the majority of applications in silo and storage facilities. A split hood, inspection and cleaning ports on the boot and casings, and cleanout slides ensure easy cleaning and maintenance. The inclusion of a round boot to minimize product residues in the conveying system, as well as the dust-tight design of the Sanitation Line, fulfill the strict hygiene requirements in processing plants such as flour mills. The rugged design of the machine parts and the use of wear-resistant materials guarantee the long service life and high dependability of the Heavy-duty Line. These features make the Heavy-duty Line particularly suitable for high capacities and heights.

Belt conveyors. Going the distance gently.


Transporting large quantities of product over long distances presents a significant challenge to conveying systems. With belt conveyors from Bhler, such tasks can be handled reliably, gently and economically. The trough belt conveyor was specially developed for short distances and lower capacities. Completely pre-assembled segments and lightweight construction allow for a particularly cost-effective investment. Roller trough belt conveyors are designed for high capacities, long distances and continuous operation under maximum stress. The drives, bearings, carrying idlers and belts were selected with durability in mind as well as their ability to cope with rough conditions.

Screw conveyors. Proportioning with excellent sanitation.


Screw conveyors excel through their enormous range of possible applications. Proportioning and discharge of materials are among the main uses for tubular screw conveyors. Excellent sanitation, a compact design and flexible installation give this conveyor model outstanding application possibilities in processing plants, e.g. as a scale feeder in feed plants or for bin discharging in grain mills. The trough screw conveyor is ideal for use as a collecting conveyor. A typical application is the flour collector in a grain mill. Bhler also offers a version with paddle screw which delivers excellent results in mixing or dampening, e.g. of wheat.

Sanitation. Cleanliness in processing.


Great care taken during all stages of processing is a key condition for food and animal feed products of the finest quality. Food-safe paints and surfaces, dust-tight and stainless steel versions as well as easy access for machine cleaning underscore Bhlers high commitment to hygiene. Residues inside the machines are eliminated ensuring the purity of the processed material during every phase of transport. Benefits: - Hygienic conveying - No material residues - No contamination

Surface treatment. The right corrosion protection for a long service life.
Choosing the right kind of surface treatment and corrosion protection plays a key role in ensuring the long service life of any conveying system. While indoor systems generally come standard-equipped with powder coating, the components of outdoor systems are available in galvanized or with a suitable powder coating. For use in mills and animal feed mills with especially strict hygiene and acid-resistance requirements, Bhler also offers special stainless steel models.
