BULKOS Apron conveyors use round steel-link chain as a pulling element which is driven by pocket wheels. According to RUD, the apron conveyor possesses many advantages, from its robust simple construction to its lower construction height due to smaller diameter wheels. The round-link chain system used is self-cleaning and works well in wet, corrosive and dirty environments.
