Morton, IL -- 4B Components, an industry leader in developing smart components for bucket elevators and conveyors, announced today that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued U.S. 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” says 4B Vice-President and patent inventor Roger Bruere.
