A bucket elevator can elevate a variety of bulk materials from light to heavy and from fine to large lumps.
The Bucket Elevators are very well suited for a broad range of bulk products in the food, agriculture, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, chemical, ceramic, glass, recycling, building and metallurgy industries and other materials requiring gentle handling. Mostly these are materials like grains, coffee, sweets, sugar, rice, beans, pet food, peanuts, flakes, seeds, tea and many more!
A centrifugal discharge elevator may be vertical or inclined. Vertical elevators depend entirely on the action of centrifugal force to get the material into the discharge chute and must be run at speeds relatively high. Inclined elevators with buckets spaced apart or set close together may have the discharge chute set partly under the head pulley. Since they don't depend entirely on the centrifugal force to put the material into the chute, the speed may be relatively lower.
