Positive Discharge Bucket Elevators

Category: Bucket Elevators

Deep Buckets connected to single strand Chain in vertical orientation driven by a Top Sprocket bigger than Sectioning Sprocket for Positive Discharge of materials from the Buckets.

Positive Discharge Elevators are similar to the centrifugal discharge type, except that buckets are snubbed back under head sprockets to gain a more complete discharge at a slower chain speed. The elevators usually handle light aerated, dusty and sticky materials that won’t discharge cleanly from a centrifugal discharge elevator. The “A” or “B” malleable iron /steel/PVC buckets are mounted at intervals on two strands of chain. Providing a capacity equal to the centrifugal discharge type requires larger buckets or closer spacing.

These are similar to the centrifugal discharge type, except that buckets are snubbed back under head sprockets to gain a more complete discharge at a slower chain speed. The elevators can handle light aerated, dusty and sticky materials that are not easily dischargeable from a centrifugal discharge elevator. The buckets are mounted at intervals on two strands of chain. Providing a capacity equal to the centrifugal discharge type requires larger buckets or closer spacing of buckets on the chain. This is a forced type of discharge and is thus more effective in transferring maximum of the carried material over to the destination.
