Conveyor Belt Drives

A Chain Driven Drive refers to the connection between the output shaft of the reducer and the input shaft of the pulley using chains and sprockets to achieve gear reduction. The Chain Driven Drive is the most narrow of the drives offered and moves completely intact, making it an attractive option for those looking for lowered installation costs.

Benefits of the Chain Driven Drive:

  • most narrow drive available
  • moves completely intact
  • less expensive than alignment-free drives, primarily because of lower reducer cost
  • fluid coupling option is available

Our Chain Driven Drives are available in a variety of belt widths and desired horsepower/voltage.
