MORTON, ILLINOIS, US — 4B Components received US Patent No. 10,556,748 to support the company’s ongoing efforts to make chain conveyors more efficient to operate.
The patent covers a chain assembly technology specifically developed for round bottom conveyors and it features a fully bolt-on construction made up of plastic paddles, steel attachments, and chain links. Branded as “Bolt-N-Go RB,” the new product expands the already popular Bolt-N-Go conveyor chain line currently available for Flat Bottom (FB) and Hi-Flite (HF) conveyors.
“Grain and feed operators currently using Bolt-N-Go realize how much easier and safer it is to install, replace and maintain Bolt-N-Go chain compared to conventional welded steel chain. The new Round Bottom version of Bolt-N-Go expands this technology for use with a wider range of conveyors, allowing maintenance teams to be even more productive” said Roger Bruere, vice president of 4B and patent inventor .
