EC-type Bucket Elevators

EC-type Bucket Elevators are the ideal solution for vertical elevation of cereals and similar materials. They are especially designed for the application in areas subject to the European Explosion Protection Directive, ATEX.

EC-type Bucket Elevators are specialized for vertical elevation of cereals and similar materials. Designed for the application in areas subject to the European Explosion Protection Directive, ATEX, these Bucket Elevators are manufactured from hot galvanized carbon steel. The machines consist of a head and a foot section which include solidly mounted roller bearings as support for the bucket carrier belt, an intermediate trunking section for bucket assembly and inspection, along with all the other intermediate casings. The particular belt and bucket design and materials offer high conveying efficiency. The use of antistatic, oil-repellent, self-extinguishing belts, along with buckets manufactured from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), as well as the presence of anti-skid belt sensors, as well as rotation and control sensors provide highly efficient state-of-the-art performance in compliance with the relevant standards.

EC-type Bucket Elevators are used for vertical elevation of cereals and similar dry, powdery, non-abrasive, non packing materials having a particle size of up to 13 mm. The material is introduced into a loading hopper which is included in the foot section. From there material is continuously picked up by appropriately shaped buckets which are fixed at an equal distance to an endless belt that rotates around a foot and a head roller wheel. The buckets are discharged through an outlet spout in the head section by centrifugal force after having passed the upper roller wheel.

EC Bucket Elevators are used in handling and storage plants for grain, cereals and other materials, as well as in different types of material processing plants.
