ABC BUCKET ELEVATORS

A bucket elevator, also known in the US as a grain leg – is a machine for conveying grain and other flowable granular products – usually vertically.

WHAT MAKES THIS DESIGN UNIQUE?

All ABC Hansen bucket elevators are fitted with oil resistant belting, and HD-PolyEthylene buckets, for minimal power consumption and maximum lifespan and stretch.

WHAT CAN A BUCKET ELEVATOR DO?

Gentle

Very low breakage of grain during conveyance

Small Footprint

Very small footprint compared to other conveyors, as the elevator is mounted vertically

A bucket elevator consists basically of

– Buckets to scoop up material from the boot of the elevator
– A belt or chain that the buckets are fastened to
– A drive unit, that drives the top belt pulley
– Inlet in the boot of the elevator (usually in the up leg)
– Outlet in the head of the elevator (always in the down leg)

Vertical bucket elevators rely on centrifugal force to discharge the product from the bucket as it crests over the top belt pulley, into the outlet chute.
