Chain Conveyors – Perseus Conveyor Series


Chain conveyors are multiple strand conveyors that are used to convey wrong way pallets and other large industrial products that cannot be conveyed on roller conveyors. They can also be used in instances where products need to be transferred from one conveyor line to another, giving more flexibility to a system.

Types of Chain Conveyors

At Zeta Group, we have two distinct types of chain conveyor that we manufacture depending on the product type.

Pallet and Flat Bottom Product Handling

When the product is a pallet or something with a flat bottom, a “standard” chain conveyor is used.

Special Product Handling

When the product does not have a flat bottom, a chain with attachments or attachment chain conveyor is used.
