Drag Conveyors

Product at a Glance

Drag conveyors pull bulk material horizontally with a chain inside of an enclosed trough. Drag conveyors come in two configurations, En Masse and Bulk Flow. En Masse drag conveyors are best suited for horizontal applications and Bulk Flow where a steep incline is required.


Product Applications

The VIS drag conveyor product line is suitable for conveying many bulk materials including grain and grain by products, fertilizer, livestock and poultry feed ingredients, aggregates and other free flowing bulk materials. Drag conveyors are well suited to handle materials gently over a moderate distance and can be configured to operate at an incline.


VIS Advantage

VIS drag conveyors are specifically configured to meet the requirements of the material being conveyed. Stainless steel is used extensively for the corrosive environment of fertilizer and wear resistant steel is used in high capacity - high speed grain drag conveyors. Each drag conveyor manufactured by VIS is extensively analyzed to ensure the suitable configuration for the application. VIS drag conveyors are designed for high duty cycle environments and all components are of superior grade.
