Series II Drags come in 16”, 20”, 24”, and 30” heights and 8”, 12”, 16”, 20”, 24”, 30”, and 32” widths. Series II Conveyors use W124 and W132 chain depending on the size. All Series II Conveyors will have 2” flanges. Series II Conveyors range from 5,000-50,000 BPH.
Series II Head Section
Series II Head Sections are constructed with 7 ga. or ¼” material. They can have either flange or pillow block bearings, and use a keyed shaft and sprocket. They also feature a slack chain device, and plug switch.
Series II Trough Section
Series II Trough Sections are available with 7 ga., 1/4”, or 3/8” Abrasive Resistant steel bottom, or UHMW plastic lined mild steel 10 ga. bottom. Side liners include 10 ga., 7 ga., or ¼” Abrasive Resistant Steel or UHMW plastic. Howell conveyors use return rail with UHMW plastic on which the chain returns to head, wider conveyors will also use tip rails to prevent the chain from twisting during conveying.
Series II Detector Tail Section
Series I Detector Tail Sections are constructed with 7 ga. material, and use flange bearings. Detector Tails utilize compression spring at the ends of the take ups to automatically take out slack from the chain during operation. This eliminates the need to manually tension the chain. This automatic style of take up also utilizes a shut off switch so that if the conveyor gets jammed or plugged it will immediately shut down the conveyor, preventing extensive damage. The same is true if the chain becomes too loose. If there is a clearance issue a standard tail must be used.
*Detector Tails are only available on conveyors with an incline less than 15 degrees*
