Product Description

The motion of belt or chain is un device for the lifting of bulk materials. Bucket elevators enjoy a few advantages, which include simplicity of design and fabrication, req un-directional. Bucket elevator is a very simple yet reliable requires minimum floor space, low initial investment.

 

Often bucket elevators are classified according to the bucket spacing and mode of discharge. They are:

  • Centrifugal discharge elevators
  • Gravity or Continuous discharge elevators
  • Positive discharge elevators

Components of bucket elevators:

The essential components of a bucket elevator are:

  1. Buckets
  2. Carrying medium
  3. Boot arrangement
  4. Head arrangement
  5. Casings

Application:

Typical average materials which can be conveyed by bucket elevators are:

  • Lime stone crushed to 25 to 30 mm size,
  • Foundry sand, Coal, Coke, Sugar, Animal Feed, Chemicals , Phosphate rock, Cement mill clinker, Friable, Fragile materials, Candy, Snacks, Coffee, Rice, Seed, Soaps, Detergents, Plastic Granules

Limitations:

  • Limitations of the system include the following points:
  • Lump size should be under 100rnm
  • Phosphate rock, Cement mill clinker, • Friable, Fragile materials, Candy, Snacks, Coffee, Rice, Seed, Soaps, Detergents, Plastic Granules
  • The material should not be very stickyThe temperature of the materials should be ambient or slightly above
  • The materials should not be excessively corrosive or abrasive
  • Advantages of belt system over chain system:
  • The traction element may be either endless belt or endless chain, but belt system is preferred under certain conditions for the following reasons:
  • Higher speeds possible
  • Quieter operation. Possess better abrasive resistance to materials like sand, co

Advantages of belt system over chain system:

  • The traction element may be either endless belt or endless chain, but belt system is preferred under certain conditions for the following reasons:
  • Higher speeds possible
