The bucket elevator is suitable for elevating the materials from a lower level to a higher level and the materials are conveyed upward in an automatic and continuous manner through the vibrating station. It is also known as bucket conveyer, hoist conveyor or bucket hoist. This elevator bucket has many advantages such as big conveying quantity, high elevating height, stable and reliable operation and long service life.
Bucket hoist uses a series of hoppers which are evenly fixed on the traction mechanism to vertically lift materials. It falls into three types: bucket type lifter, plate chain bucket elevator and belt conveyor.
The bucket type lifter and plate chain bucket elevator are the two most commonly seen types. They usually adopt flow type feeding. The material will be raised to the top by the plate chain. Under the gravity, it discharges automatically. This machine is available in various specifications, features high efficiency, and low energy consumption. Generally, it adopts closed circuit casing, so it is outstanding for low noise and long service life.
