Three types of chains are typically used in asphalt plants:
- Inclined Scraper Conveyor Chains are used to move the asphalt mix into storage hoppers.
- Drive Chains are used on rotating drums to mix the aggregate and asphalt.
- Bucket Elevator Chains are used to move aggregates to stor age silos and are sometimes used to move the asphalt mix to storage hoppers.
When hot asphalt arrives at a road construction site, the mix flows from dump trucks into the paving machine hopper. An asphalt paving machine uses a special scraper conveyor to transfer hot asphalt from the hopper to the road surface. We have designed chains specifically to fit O.E.M. equipment and to function in this hot, abrasive environment.
