(also called bucket conveyors) are continuous conveyors used to vertically convey all kinds of bulk materials.
A bucket elevator has a top station (with a drive shaft, motor, and gear drive) and a bottom return-end station. The steel elevator shafts in which the buckets are moved up and down between the redirecting stations are referred to as "shafts", "trunking" or "bucket Elevator legs".
In a bucket elevator,Rectangle buckets made of steel or plastic are attached to a pulling element that moves in a continuous loop, i.e., a roller chain (in chain-driven bucket elevators) or a belt (in belt-driven bucket elevators).
These buckets continuously are loaded with material by means of hoppers or chutes. The material is then conveyed upwards and is tipped into a discharge chute behind the top redirecting station.
Depending on their overall width, their bucket capacity, and the height that must be traversed, bucket elevators can require a large amount of power. A bucket elevator's height is up to 120 meters.
The bucket elevator is designed and manufactured in accordance with the national standards. It is unloaded by gravity. The plate sleeve roller chain is used as the traction part. It is suitable for conveying materials with a stacking specific gravity of less than 2ton /M³, And block sizes of 55, 80 and 110 mm,The material temperature is no more than 250 ºC, such as lump coal, gravel, ore, pebble and etc
The conveying capacity of the machine is 16-480M³/h, and the lifting height is up to 120 meters.
