Bucket Elevator

Bucket elevators are the economical solution when it comes to vertical transport of bulk material.
Bucket elevator consist of bucket,traction components, head section, middle casing, tail section, driving unit and other components etc.
Bucket elevator is widely used in mining, metallurgy, cement, grain, chemical, power and many kinds of industries.
EXCT has been building custom bucket elevators for over 30 years. We can design and manufacture the bucket elevator according to the needs of the end users.

Optimum Performance


Increased Safety

The whole bucket elevator has good sealing, prevent the leakage of materials and dust, which will not cause environmental pollution.

The driving unit is equipped with back stop, prevent material backflow when shut down in an emergency.

The discharge outlet is equipped with anti-return rubber baffle, which can effectively prevent the material from returning to the casing during unloading.

The bucket elevator is equipped with some protection switches. The protection switches will give early warning of possible accidents, and also to be connected to the central control room for real-time monitoring of the operation of the bucket elevator.


Easy Maintenance

Lower Spare Parts Cost 

The gearbox can be equipped with auxiliary drive according to the need. When the main motor has an emergency failure or the bucket elevator needs maintenance, the auxiliary drive will start and the bucket will run at slow speed.

The drive sprocket of chain bucket elevator is composed of wheel hub and segmented tooth ring. When the drive sprocket wears out, just replace the tooth ring which reduces the maintenance cost.

Gravity+Spring tensioning device is used in the tail part of the bucket elevator to realize automatic tensioning. Constant tension force can be maintained after one installation adjustment to avoid belt slipping or chain taking off.

The drive pulley of belt bucket elevator can adopt segmented diamond-rubber plate. When the drive pulley wears out, just replace the diamond-rubber plate which reduces the maintenance cost and save repair time.
