4 Best Bucket Elevator of 2021 | Ultimate list



Introduction


If material needs to be moved vertically, chances are a bucket elevator is the ideal solution for the job.  A bucket elevator consists of a series of buckets attached to a chain with sprockets located at the top and bottom of the unit. It is a common bulk material handling system in a wide range of industries.

Normally, bucket elevator includes c type bucket conveyor, continuous bucket elevator, z type bucket elevator, pendulum bucket elevator. In this article, we will introduce high quality food grade bucket conveyor in 2021.
 

Types of Bucket Elevator Conveyor Systems


Bucket elevator is made specially for the safe transport, the different types of bucket elevator are designed depending on the purpose it serves.

● Single bucket elevator

The single bucket elevator is suitable for broad range of free flowing products in the food, agriculture, chemical industry.  It can be used for one shot lifting of snack food, frozen food, vegetable, fruit, confectionary. Chemicals and other granules. Also this vertical lift conveyor features low running noise, stable operation, and fast speed.

►  Buckets can be installed or released really soon because of the quick release mechanism.
► Automatic chain tension device and built-in overload protection is equipped to guarantee the safety of operation.
► All parts have easy to remove inspection covers and a conveniently located inspection window.


►The buckets are made of food grade reinforced polypropylene, molded in one piece and can handle temperatures from -10 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
►The vertical bucket elevator can be interface with different feeding devices because of its multiple feeding location.

● Continuous Bucket Conveyor


Compared to other bucket conveyors, this machine operate slowly, so as to eliminate the  throwing action. The continuous bucket conveyor is designed specially for conveying fragile or light materials. Benefits include limited material aeration, minimized breakage of friable material, and minimized product damage of fragile material.
Parameter:
Model FM-Z370 Continuous Bucket Conveyor
Bucket Volume 3.7L
Machine Structure Stainless steel or carbon steel
Production Capacity 10-30 m3/h
Machine Height Customized
Discharging Height Customzied
Hopper Material Food grade ABS
Voltage AC220V or three phase 380V, 50hz/60hz
Power Supply 0.75kw
 

Conclusion

Focusconveyor is one of the bucket elevator chain manufacturers and bucket elevator exporters in China. We have been designing and manufacturing different bucket elevators for more than 12 years. We recommend the right type of bucket elevator with reasonable bucket conveyor price based on customer’s material, capacity, space, process requirements, etc.

According to the actual material, we have different buckets for choosing, including food grade pp bucket, ABS bucket, 304 stainless steel buckets, and also providing different sizes buckets to match different production capacity.
