Bucket elevators have been used for vertical transport of diverse bulk materials for decades. As a market leader, Rollcon Technofab India Pvt Ltd have successfully fabricated belt bucket elevators for different industries decades ago.
Belt bucket elevators are consistently developed in the past and enable the highest possible conveying capacities with maximum centre distances today. These type of conveyors are mainly used where there is limited space is available. A bucket elevator can elevate a variety of bulk materials from light to heavy and from fine to large lumps.
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.
Nearly all centrifugal discharge elevators have spaced buckets with rounded bottoms. They pick up their load from a boot, a pit, or a pile of material at the foot pulley.
The buckets can be also triangular in cross section and set close to on the belt with little or no clearance between them. This is a continuous bucket elevator. Its main use is to carry difficult materials at slow speed.
Chain bucket elevators are the preferred conveying systems for the transport of hot bulk materials and coarse-grained materials. RTIPL offers efficient and proven solutions even for the highest conveying capacities.
Because every bucket application is unique, our company offers a broad series of industrial elevator designs. Selection of the proper type of bucket elevator depends largely on the capacity requirements and the characteristics of the material to be handled.
