Bucket Conveyors

Bucket conveyors, also known as bucket elevators, are a type of material handling equipment that use buckets to transport goods and products vertically or horizontally. They are commonly used in industries such as agriculture, mining, and food processing to move materials such as grain, seed, and bulk solids.

Bucket conveyors consist of a series of buckets attached to a belt or chain, which move along a track or through a tube. The buckets are designed to scoop up and carry the material as they move, and can be customized to have different shapes and sizes depending on the application requirements.

Bucket conveyors can be configured in various ways to suit different applications. They can be designed to operate in a vertical or inclined orientation, and can be equipped with different types of buckets, such as continuous or discrete, depending on the material being transported. They can also be customized with different types of discharge options, such as centrifugal or gravity, to accommodate different production needs.

Bucket conveyors offer several advantages over other types of material handling equipment. They are well-suited for handling materials that are prone to degradation or breakage, as the gentle movement of the buckets helps to prevent damage. They are also ideal for transporting materials over long distances and around obstacles, as they can be easily routed through complex layouts.
