One of the most common pieces of operating machinery in a grain elevator or feed mill is the chain (drag) conveyor. When properly maintained, a chain conveyor will provide years of dependable and safe service. All external moving parts need to be properly guarded yet allow for inspection and maintenance. Chains need to be inspected and adjusted for the proper tension. One of the highest incidents of injury occurs when the chain is being “broken” for maintenance.
This session covers all of these aspects and details of safely operating and maintaining a chain (drag) conveyor.
