“FB” Flat-Bottom En-Masse
Flat-Bottom conveyors are designed to carry the maximum volume of material within a minimum size trough structure with true En-Masse conveying. These conveyors provide a gentle material handling in a totally enclosed and dust tight unit, which provides less product degradation at time of discharge. Flat-Bottom conveyors are most effective in horizontal and low incline applications, where the rise is less than 14°. Some material, depending on its behavior, can use a bend section within an approved range of incline. These Flat-Bottom conveyors offer several inlet, gate discharge, chain and flight options to match specific material handling requirements.
