Chain Conveyor - TC Series


Chain conveyors are one of the most widely used systems for moving bulk materials along horizontal or moderately inclined paths. Their intrinsic simplicity has led to them being adopted for the most diverse industrial applications throughout the world.

Metalmont TC Series conveyors are suitable for conveying granular materials, particularly cereals, seeds and their derivatives. In designing these products, Metalmont has scrupulously applied the latest and most stringent standards with regard to operator safety, reliability in the most arduous working conditions and construction quality, with the aim of reducing energy consumption and maintenance costs.

Metalmont TC Series conveyors are also available on request with ATEX 22 certification. The standard operating temperature range is 0 to 40 °C.

Information on our past installations and customer portfolio is available on request.


The Metalmont TC Series range of conveyors comprises 5 models, differentiated by their typical load capacity. These models are avai- lable for standard enclosed transport (Metalmont TCN Series), for use in trough with open casing and loading walls (Metalmont TCF Series) or with double casing (Metalmont TCD Series).

The typical nominal load capacity is calculated based on wheat with volume- tric mass 0.78 t/m3, moisture content 16%, max. impurity 2%.

With reference to the various materials, the indicative hourly load capacity in ton/h is:
Model Wheat Soya bean Sunflower Paddy Bran Derivatives Flour
t/m3 0,78 0,70 0,40 0,60 0,25 0,35 0,50
TC 040 40 40 20 30 10 20 30
TC 060 60 60 30 50 20 30 40
TC 120 120 120 60 95 40 60 80
TC 200 200 200 110 160 60 80 120
TC 250 250 250 140 200 79 90 130
Metalmont TC Series conveyors can be customised on request:
  • Bent-link blanked chain or forged-link chain
  • Hot dip galvanised or powder coated frame, also suitable for food grade applications
  • Stainless steel frame


Metalmont TC Series conveyors are available with a series of accessories that facilitate their effective installation in the plant.

Load capacity control system: this simple device regulates the load capacity of the conveyor, so as to prevent flooding. The system consists of a knob mounted on the conveyor casing, near to the head: this knob governs a metal flap that changes position inside the conveyor, thus widening or restricting the passage area.

Loading and discharge: for loading and discharge of material, various hoppers are available for connection to the tail or head end, or even at intermediate positions subject to modifications such as interruption of the chain mount (for material loading), or the addition of a rack shutter (for material discharge). The in-feed sections are always quadrangular, whereas the out-feed sections can be round or square according to need, in different thicknesses.

Reversible tail: if the customer needs to transport material in two directions, a reversible version of the conveyor can be created. Depending on the lengths and load capacities, it is possible to use either a single gearmotor or one at each end (in which case the tail becomes a head). For more information, contact Metalmont.

Curved section: if the conveyor is required to carry material along a slightly inclined flight, it is possible to fit a special element that creates a small upward curve, up to a gradient that depends on the material transported, with a maximum angle of around 10°.

Hanging support system: if a section of the conveyor needs to be suspended in the air, it is possible to use the hanging support system which enables the machine to be secured by means of a series of brackets and cables.

Metal joinery components: in addition to specific accessories for the correct installation of its machines, Metalmont is also a long-standing supplier of more general but equally useful plant access and structural solutions such as staircases, rest platforms, inspection platforms, walkways, frameworks and bracketing of all kinds, from simple brackets to backstays for supporting long sections of piping, shelves and stands.
