This is a short article to introduce certain basic areas of bucket elevator chains and bucket elevator conveying systems to non-technical persons. It describes components of something using roller chain & sprockets.
A Bucket Elevator can be an economical and efficient inclined conveying system where buckets are installed on a circulating conveying program, to vertically convey an array of small to bulky components to successive delivering systems. These elevators can be found across the entire spectrum of industry.
A range of mechanical drives can be used to power bucket elevators such as:
– Direct drive geared electric motor.
– Electric motor drive using V-belt & pulleys.
– Electric motor drive using a roller chain & sprocket.
– Electric motor drive utilizing a combination of the 2nd & 3rd options.
– Geared motor with roller chain & sprockets.
Bucket Elevators often consist of numerous buckets attached to a bucket elevator chain by means of brackets linked with a chain bolt in a loose fitting, with sprockets located in strategic factors and at the top and bottom of the unit.
