Bucket Elevator

Bucket Elevator Types

Regular bucket elevator is an efficient way to vertically lift most bulk materials, which can be used at farms, port facilities, food processing, and mines.

The primary advantage of the ultra-low speed bucket elevator is its gentle handling of materials, crucial in industries where product integrity is essential, such as certain food products, seeds, pharmaceuticals, or delicate industrial materials. There are two types of bucket drive methods: belt drive and chain drive.

Designed to handle materials that require a vertical lift but also need to change direction horizontally.Commonly used in the packaging industry for moving snacks, pet food, and other small products.

Bucket Elevator Components and Parts

Elevator Buckets

The buckets used in the bucket elevator are designed to be sturdy and reliable. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials to suit different applications. Also, they can be customised according to the customer’s needs.

Bucket Bolt Sets

Bucket bolt sets are used to secure the buckets to the elevator belt. They come in a variety of sizes and materials, so that they can be used for different applications. Also, the installation of bucket bolt sets is simple and easy.

Elevator Belts

The elevator belt is the most important component of a bucket elevator. It is designed to be strong and reliable, and it comes in a variety of sizes and materials so that it can handle different types of materials.

Belt Fasteners

Belt fasteners are used to secure the elevator belt to the frame. They come in a variety of sizes and materials, so that they can be used for different applications. Also, the installation of belt fasteners is simple and easy.

Pulley Slide Lagging

The head wheel is equipped with a clip-on rubber coating to improve the driving efficiency of the elevator belt, reduce belt slippage, and facilitate maintenance or replacement

The pulley slide lagging is designed to reduce friction between the bucket elevator buckets and the drive belt. It also helps reduce wear on the pulleys, which can extend the life of the system. It is made from robust materials for durability. Also, it is available in a variety of sizes and materials.

Bucket Elevator Features

Head pulley

The head pulley is designed to drive the bucket elevator and ensure that it operates at optimal efficiency. It is also equipped with a tensioning mechanism, which enables easy adjustment of the chain or belt tension. Also, it is made from robust materials for durability.


These buckets are made from high-quality materials to ensure reliability and longevity. They are sized according to the material being transported, so that they can handle different types of materials without any issues. Also, the buckets are designed with special features such as drainage holes to ensure proper flow of material and dust collection.

Elevator Belt

The elevator belt is designed to provide a secure and reliable connection between the buckets. It is also made from high-quality material that can withstand high temperatures, abrasions, and other wear and tear. Also, the belt features special features such as a high-strength splice that ensures uniform and reliable operation.

A bucket elevator is a type of conveyor system used to move materials from one level to another. It consists of buckets, hoppers and other components that are designed to move bulk materials vertically. Also known as a grain leg, it is used in many industries to lift materials from the ground up to storage silos or other higher destinations.
Bucket elevators are an efficient way to move materials from one level to the next. They are able to handle large amounts of material in a relatively small space and can be used for both vertical and horizontal transportation. Bucket elevators also provide greater control over the movement of materials, as well as increased safety features such as emergency stops, sensors and alarms. Also, they are designed to be able to operate remotely or manually.
Yes, most bucket elevators come pre-assembled for convenience and ease of installation. However, some may require additional setup or configuration depending on the size and type of machine. Additionally, some models may need to be customised according to a customer’s specific needs. Also, certain models may require professional installation. It is best to consult with a qualified supplier before purchasing a bucket elevator.
The capacity of a bucket elevator depends on the type and size of the machine, as well as the materials being transported. Generally speaking, larger machines can handle more material than smaller models. Additionally, some materials may require specific configurations or components to ensure optimal performance. Also, the length of the elevator can affect its overall capacity. It is best to consult with a qualified supplier for exact specifications.
There are several categories of bucket elevators, including centrifugal and continuous. Centrifugal bucket elevators are used to transport materials from one level to the next and are ideal for high capacity settings. Continuous bucket elevators can be used for both vertical and horizontal transportation of bulk materials, making them suitable for a variety of applications. Also, they can be used in conjunction with other equipment like conveyors, to provide a complete material handling system.
The configuration of a bucket elevator may vary depending on the material being transported. For instance, materials that require gentle handling should be moved in a larger bucket with a slower speed to limit impact. In contrast, heavier materials that are more durable need smaller buckets and higher speeds for efficient transport. Additionally, some materials may require additional components such as sensors or counterweights for safer and more precise operation. Also, the configuration of a bucket elevator can be customised to meet specific requirements or material characteristics.
