Bucket Conveyor and it benefits

In today’s world, the latest technologies are applied in all walks of life, and this goes with the usage of bucket conveyors, also. They are number of buckets connected with each other on to a belt. They are chain driven as well as Belt driven.  They are available in different sizes, shapes and types, as per the material required to be moved, vertically. They are more popular in oil mills, mining industries, construction areas etc.

Its simplicity, has made it, really popular, in various industries, specifically in bulk material handling and in processing applications. The Bucket elevators are serving effectively,  to move both heavy and light material with ease and accuracy. The Bucket Elevators are successfully elevating, the most free flowing material, as well as material with poor flow characteristics, flowing bulk solids or powders etc.  The process of raising and lowering of material is done with the help of mechanical and hydraulic power. The buckets conveyors benefits to deal with any type of material, strong elevation, durability less power consumption,  easy transportation, lifting even in the highest location,  capacity, smooth and steady functioning etc. has proved it beneficial. The bucket elevators are trusted machines, which are economical, serves for long period of time, reduces labour cost, no interruption in transportation, all thes have made it popular and beneficial.

Keeping in mind, Neo Conveyors, are designing, such Bucket Conveyor, by giving proper shape and specific design to it. Buckets are accordingly, attached with required capacity and the speed is maintained to elevate it.. Each conveyor is unique in its own capacity  so it is specifically designed to work satisfactorily. Neo Continuous Bucket Elevators, are designed to handle products without material deterioration,  the product move undisturbed until it is discharged.

Handling Petcoke made easy with Bucket Elevator

Petcoke, is a residual product of crude oil and gets its name from petroleum and coal. Petcoke is black solid waste, having high calorific value left over by various refineries/distilleries. It has high calorific value, but low volatile content, which leads to poor ignition.
Petcoke is becoming popular in todays world and it is replacing fuel, it is acting as a supplementary fuel in various industries, due to its comparative low price. Many industries use Petcoke. Such as, Boilers, Cement Industries, Power Plants indulged into Power Generation etc. Petcoke, being a waste product but, compared to coal and other fuels have high calorific value and much lower price, comparatively.

Petcoke is a cheap fuel to be used now a days, but, its use, creates certain problems, due to high sulphur and low volatility. Petcoke is required to be finely grounded to obtain full advantage of its calorific value, so that, it burns easily and completely. The high sulphur content in Petcoke, creates operational problems in the kiln, which can normally be sorted out by using a bypass system. The Bucket Elevator, can be used to make movement of petcoke easy and possible in effective manner, in order to utilize Petcoke with higher percentage of Sulphur, a bypass system that withdraws 15-20% of kiln gases is required, alongwith it. Bucket Elevators are serving this purpose easily.

As bypass system works together with Bucket Conveyors. We Neo conveyors, specialist in manufacturing of bucket elevators can serve this purpose. Neo Conveyors are providing various types of conveyors and serving various industries.
