Bulk materials handling vertically by bucket elevator
The Bucket Elevator, as its name suggest, it is an arrangement of buckets to elevate material vertically. Nowadays, the bucket elevator is in great use, its main task is to handle bulk material and elevate vertically, irrespective of whether the material to be elevated is free flow or material with poor flow liquid consistency.
The bucket elevator requires a flat surface to be mounted on of solid concrete, The foundation should be horizontal, secure enough to give support to the installed bucket elevator in order to achieve vertical requirements. Middle and upper casing section of a higher height bucket elevator should be connected and supported well with the neighboring building or any solid structure to give it stability. . The bucket elevators are going through continuous development, regarding shapes and sizes of buckets, head and boot profiles, manufacturing and operating specifications of the machine.
The Bucket Elevator is successfully elevating, whether it may be the most free-flowing material or material with poor flow characteristics. The rate at which, material be elevated depends on various factors, in addition to the obvious effects of bucket design, capacity, and speed.
Neo conveyors are into designing, manufacturing bucket elevators to handle bulk material without material deterioration, undisturbed until it is discharged.
