Heavy-Duty Drag Conveyors handle aggressive materials 24/7.

Press Release Summary:



Able to move material horizontally or vertically, En-Masse conveyors are engineered to application length, infrastructure limitations, inlet and outlet points, material characteristics, and partial size. Continuous-duty, totally enclosed design is engineered for aggressive materials, and capacity ranges from 2–1,000 TPH for single strand chains and higher for double strand chains. Base chain is high-CrMn, drop-forged steel alloy, and chain is case-hardened Alloy Steel, 550–650 BHN.

Heavy-Duty EN-MASSE Conveyors are Engineered to Handle Aggressive Materials for 24/7 Operation



Elk River, MN – CDM Systems, Inc. a leading manufacturer of heavy-duty En-Masse conveyors and systems for over 40 years, features drop-forged chain and conveyor designs for aggressive applications.  Also known as Drag Conveyors, En-Masse conveyors offer the best in conveying technology because of the efficient size to capacity ratio, the ability to convey in multiple directions, the capability to handle abrasive material without degradation, and the reliability to convey over long distances. En-Masse conveyors are ideal for a wide range of applications; from potash, to pet coke, to coal, and cement, from chemicals, to steel and light ore.



CDM engineers each conveyor to the specifications of each application. “Our customers rely on our ability to design conveying systems to meet their exact requirements. For this reason, no two conveyors are identical, even when handling a similar material.  Length of conveyor, location, temperature, infrastructure limitations, number of required inlet and outlet points, and material characteristics and partial size are all key factors that can change the design of the conveyor”, notes Andrew Parker, Vice President of CDM.



En-Masse Conveyors engineered for continuous-duty, aggressive materials with:



• Capacity ranges from 2 TPH to 1000 TPH for single strand chains; higher capacities available for double strand

• Totally Enclosed -dust & weather tight

• Built for 24hr/day operation

• Base chain is a high CrMn drop-forged steel alloy, suitable for high temperature, abrasive applications.

• Chain is case-hardened Alloy Steel, 550-650 BHN – designed for wear resistance and durability

• Self -Supporting – No additional structure needed.

• Reliable installation with clearly identified connection points

• Auxiliary spring-loaded chain take-up – with optional catenary take-up

• Inspection doors Standard – optional auxiliary door available

• Low Maintenance - only two lubrication locations



The En-Masse conveyor can move material horizontally or vertically and is well suited for reliable, high capacity conveying. For more information on En-Masse conveyors and systems visit, www.cdmsys.com or call 763-428-9700.
