Chain Conveyors and Bucket Elevators use en-masse principle.
June 10, 2009 -
Suited for handling wheat, rice, coal, gravel, ore, and cement, MoveMaster Chain Conveyors and Bucket Elevators utilize En-Masse principle where bulk materials are induced to move like liquid through dust-tight steel casing, which can be designed horizontally, on inclined plane, vertically, and around bends. Offering capacities from 10-2,000 tons, conveyors have high tensile alloy steel chains, while elevators are manufactured with heavy duty steel to withstand harsh environments.

Schenck Process Chain Conveyors and Bucket Elevators Move Materials Easily and Efficiently
Often used together, the Schenck Process MoveMaster Chain Conveyor and Bucket Elevator utilize the 'En-Masse' principle where bulk materials are induced to move like a liquid through a dust tight steel casing; which can be designed horizontally, on an inclined plane, vertically and around bends. This method avoids internal disturbance or pressure on the material and allows for discharge at any opening where the load is permitted to fall away from the flights.
Not only does the Schenck Process MoveMaster Chain Conveyor incorporate the 'En-Masse' principle its versatility allows it to handle a range of capacities from 10 to 2,000 tons per hour and also be used as a conventional drag chain. To ensure absolute quality control the chains are made from high tensile alloy steel forgings and for maximum strength and service life the chain links are heat treated and the flights are precision welded to them. The chain conveyor also features inspection doors that ease access and improve installation speed, as well as tail access that allows for easy, timesaving maintenance.
The Schenck Process MoveMaster Bucket Elevator offers both belt and chain bucket elevators for light and heavy-duty industry applications. The steel buckets are designed to give maximum throughput while still maintaining the perfect fill and discharge characteristics. All elevators are manufactured with heavy duty steel to withstand harsh environments and the elevator chains are heat treated and hardened to resist wear when used with abrasive products.
Materials that can be handled in both the MoveMaster Chain Conveyor and Bucket Elevator include wheat, rice, malt and pellets and hot and more abrasive materials like coal, gravel, ore, cement, and clinker ash.
