Terminal sprockets have profile machined teeth and heat treated contact zone for economical life.Terminal sprockets have profile machined teeth and heat treated contact zone for economical life.

Operating speed is limited by experience and higher capacities are achieved using higher sidewalls welded to the aprons in conjunction with partition plates.

These equipment are often used as cooling or feeding machines in advance of Belt Conveyors as the capital cost is relatively higher than other types of conveyors.
