Conveyor Assembly. Each conveyor assembly
consists of a pair of conveyor chains driven by a drive
sprocket wheel mounted on a drive shaft at the rear of
the conveyor assembly. The drive sprocket wheel is
located inside the chain guard housing. The drive shaft
is supported at either end by two conveyor drive ball
bearing units. Each bearing unit is equipped with a
remote lubrication fitting for easy access. A conveyor
roller, located at the front of the conveyor, is supported
by two conveyor roller ball bearing units. The bearing
units are mounted on adjustable support plates. Each
bearing unit is equipped with a lubrication fitting. Front
and rear drag plates are mounted onto the main frame
support structures below the conveyor chain assemblies.
Each conveyor chain assembly includes 14 drag bars
that are pulled forward or back by the conveyor chains.
