Chain Roller Conveyors



Chain Driven Live Roller Conveyors–commonly referred to as “CDLR”–provide a positively driven, heavy duty, live roller conveyor. Positive-drive means that the rollers are driven by chain that will not slip, and not by belt. Great for heavy load-bearing applications.

These conveyors are available with close roller centers as well as the ability to zone.
Because of the positive chain and sprocket drive, it’s an ideal choice for conveying pallets, containers, drums and other heavy unit loads. In addition, it’s well suited for dirty or oiling environments, where other types of live roller conveyors won’t perform.

Chain roller conveyors have reversible speeds, with speeds from five to 150 feet per minute. This provides the flexibility needed for such heavy loads.

Our specialty is the design and integration of custom conveyor solutions to meet your needs and budget. From design through install, we will meet your exact material handling needs through our available conveyor systems.

This page goes into the basic models of chain roller conveyors. Each chain conveyor type has a PDF schematic as well as manual for download.
