Bucket elevator

Overview

DEMECH supplies Bucket Elevators for vertically transporting various free-flowing bulk materials from dust to material having particles up to 30 mm.

DEMECH supplies centrifuge or continuous types of Bucket Elevators with single and double strands of chains.

Conveying buckets are mounted on chain. Conveyor speed is selected based on the type of discharge. Drive platform is provided at the top near drive end casing. For maintenance purpose an inspection window is provided at the boot section of bucket elevator.

Technical Details
  • The Bucket Elevators are designed according to relevant Indian Standards.
  • “Centrifugal” Bucket Elevators operate at higher speeds to discharge the material by centrifugal action out of the buckets into the discharge spout as the buckets pass over the head pulley/sprocket.
  • Buckets are spaced at wider intervals to prevent discharge interference from the proceeding bucket and to assure maximum fill of the buckets at the boot end while moving at higher speed.
  • “Continuous” Bucket Elevators are designed to handle friable, fragile materials to minimize product degradation and damage or to handle sluggish or abrasive material. They are also used to convey light free-flowing matter where aeration of the material must be avoided.
  • Continuous style elevators operate at a lower speed to minimize breakage of friable materials.
  • Buckets are closely spaced on the belt or chain to allow the material to flow over the backside of the proceeding bucket, whose extended sides form a chute to guide the material into the discharge spout.
  • Bucket Elevators are powered by geared motor and / or transmission chain & sprocket located at the top end of the conveyor. Gravity take-up / tensioning arrangement is provided at the boot section of Bucket elevator. Drive platform is provided at the top near drive end casing. For maintenance purpose an inspection window is provided at the boot section of Bucket elevator.
  • Standard bucket elevators are made out of carbon steel.
