Scraper Chain Selection Principles (1)

The reasonable selection of scraper and chain depends on its structure form, chain pitch, scraper pitch and material of construction. When choosing, people should pay special attention to meet the requirements of production capacity, and make the scraper & chain have the adaptability to material.

1. Selection of Scraper Structure Form
The scraper structure form determines the transportation effect of buried scraper conveyor. It could get a good effect through the reasonable selection of scraper. Otherwise, the improper selection of scraper may cause poor transportation effect, even failure.

On the condition of meeting the adaptability to material, the selection principle is to choose the scraper simple in structure. In the specific use, the scraper can be chosen according to the material features (viscosity, suspension property and fluidity), conveyor trough width and conveyor arrangement form. 

1) The material has good transportation property: the scraper in simple shape is preferred, such as T-type, V-type, U-type, etc.
The material has small internal friction coefficient, strong suspension property and high fluidity: complex shape scraper should be used, such as H-type.

2) The material has heavy viscosity, or the viscosity becomes big after the material moisture absorption: in order to reduce the material adhesion on the scraper, and unload and clean material easily, it is better to choose simple structure scraper, such as T-type, V-type, U-type, etc.

3) The material is easy to float chain: the scraper can be inclined position welded.

4) The trough width of buried scraper conveyor is smaller: it is appropriate to use simple shape scraper. When the material with large bulk density is transported in bigger conveyor trough, in order to increase the scraper rigidity, it is recommended to use O-type scraper with diagonal strut. 

5) The buried scraper conveyor is horizontal installation: T-type, U-type or V-type scraper is generally used.
Conveyor vertical installation: V-type and U-type scrapers in outward form arrangement are usually chosen.
Z-type buried scraper conveyor: V-type scraper in inward form arrangement.
Ring-lock (MK type) buried scraper conveyor: V-type scraper in outward form arrangement.
Planar ring structure (MP type) buried scraper conveyor: L-type scraper in outward form arrangement.
Facade ring structure (ML type) buried scraper conveyor: V-type scraper in outward form arrangement.
