Bucket elevators can be used to handle a variety of bulk materials. The design involves a belt or chain driven around head and tail pulleys, which carries buckets containing the material.
The advantage of using bucket elevators is that they are simple in construction enabling maintenance and fault finding to be carried out on site with ease.
Vibratory hopper feeders are optional and can be mounted directly on to the bucket elevator if required. Castor wheels for mobile use are also optional.
Various sizes of bucket elevators are available from Autopac Systems.
