Types of Bucket Elevators

 Types of Bucket Elevators

  • Centrifugal bucket elevator
  • Continuous Bucket Elevator

 


Centrifugal bucket elevator

Centrifugal Bucket Elevator is the most common and efficient way to convey material. It has been serving efficiently and is used to convey free-flowing/powered bulk solids, such as sugar, grains, animal feed, sand, minerals, aggregates, chemicals, and more. Centrifugal Bucket Elevators as the name suggest operating at high speed throwing the materials out of the buckets into the discharge throat by centrifugal force. The Industrial type elevators operate at slower speeds than standard duty-type elevators. In Centrifugal Bucket Elevators the Style AA buckets are used, which are widely spaced on a chain or belt, which operate at speed up to 305 FPM for handling the heaviest industrial material up to 1213 pounds per cubic foot.

Benefits of bucket elevator

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 the 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.

Advantages of bucket elevator

  • 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. have proved it beneficial.
  • The bucket elevators are trusted machines, which are economical, serve for a long period of time, reduce labor cost, no interruption in transportation, all these have made it popular and beneficial.

Types of bucket elevator

  • Centrifugal discharge bucket elevator – The Centrifugal Discharge elevator uses profound buckets moving at a generally fast, permitting centrifugal power to move the material out of the bucket and into the discharge opening. It is particularly appropriate for tough and grating materials that can withstand scooping out of the boot and throwing out of the discharge.
  • Continuous discharge bucket elevator Z type bucket elevators are designed to handle products without material deterioration,  the product moves undisturbed until it is discharged.

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.

Types of bucket elevators discharge

Different discharge methods of bucket elevators are centrifugal type bucket elevator, gravity type bucket elevator, and hybrid type bucket elevator. Details as below:

Bucket Elevators Different Type of Material Discharging

Types of bucket elevator

  • Centrifugal Type: Materials are discharged by using centrifugal force to throw the material away from the discharging outlet. It is suitable for dry with fast lifting speed and small particles.
  • Gravity Type: Materials are discharged by and suitable for material which is large and fragile.
  • Hybrid type: Materials are discharged by using centrifugal force and gravity force, which is suitable for material with poor fluidity and big humidity.
