Welded steel drag chains are designed for drag conveyors where r ugged and demanding environments exist. Webster’s unique two-piece welded barrel offers better scraping action as well as double thickness at the wear points. The rugged welded construction permits high speeds, minimal lubrication and easy modification for application specific attachments.

Sidebars are medium carbon steel. Barrels are low carbon steel. Pins are medium carbon steel and are thru hardened for maximum chain life. The WDH chains also have thru hardened sidebars for greater strength and wear resistance. All parts can be furnished with additional heat treatment on request or as the operating environment requires.

Welded steel drag chains are riveted construction. Cottered connecting pins are available on request as well as complete cottered construction.

Welded steel drag chains are interchangeable with other standard makes of corresponding sizes and numbers.

Welded steel drag chains are used in wood yards, paper mills and OSB plants to convey sawdust, bark and other scraps. They are also used to convey ash or machine chips in powerhouses or machining operations. They provide long life with very low maintenance.

Maximum chain speed depends upon size of sprockets. For Conveyor Service see Table 2, Section A.
