What is A Bucket Conveyor ?
In the process of grain processing, the grain elevator is responsible for lifting materials, transporting materials, lifting equipment, tools, and other tasks. It is an important transportation device that connects the grain ground and the grain transportation and is one of the important pieces of transportation equipment in the grain transportation process.The bucket conveyor is a fixed device of mechanical transport equipment, mainly used for powder, granules and, small pieces of material contentious vertical lift. It can be widely used in various sizes of feed mills, flour mills, rice processing factories, oil mills, starch plants, as well as grain stations, port flowable bulk material lifts.
It consists of:
1. Buckets to contain the material;
2. A belt to carry the buckets and transmit the pull;
3. Pulley to drive the belt;
4. Accessories for loading the buckets or picking up the material, for receiving the discharged material, for maintaining the belt tension, and for enclosing and protecting the elevator.
Rice Bucket Conveyor Working Principle
When the driver of the rice bucket conveyor hoist starts working, it drives the pulley to circulate the belt with the plastic bucket from the bottom of the tail to the top of the head. The head has an exit and the tail has an entrance. The feed hopper lift is filled with material and runs to the head, and then the material is thrown out of the outlet by centrifugal force according to the parabolic design. When it is running, the empty bucket returns to the bottom of the tail and fills the material again from the inlet, and then lifts for a parabolic discharge motion. Therefore, this cycle completes the vertical transfer of material.
The machine has the characteristic of compact structure, smooth operation, low noise, low energy consumption, high efficiency, easy operation, and maintenance, widely use and low cost is another reason why the bucket conveyor is so popular in the market. Most but not least, we could provide a video on how to assemble the bucket conveyor equipment.
Rice Bucket Conveyor Advantages and Features
1. Slow digging speed to lower broken rate.
2. Auto-tightening and loosening bucket belt.
3. With visualization, detachable inspection window, convenient to clean the residue from the base. 4. Use a specially designed diversion trench to reduce breakage of material.
5. The transfer amount can be adjusted according to the transmission speed, the height can be increased as needed.
6. Fully enclosed shell structure design, no dust outside.
Scope of application
Bucket elevators are widely used in grain and oil, metallurgy, cement, chemical, light industry, and other industries. It is used to lift grain, lump coal, gravel, ore, egg stone, dry and bulk and flow, granules and bulk materials, especially good to be applied in rice processing factories to deliver material vertically.
Bucket Elevator Specification
We offer a variety of bucket elevator designs and sizes to handle materials ranging from dry dusty powders to heavy materials pellets. Bucket elevators can be ordered in many configurations, including TGTG Series and TGTGW low-speed bucket conveyors, these bucket elevators are capable of handling large volumes of material. The actual TPH throughput capacity of the elevator depends on the characteristics of the material.
