Bucket elevators

Bucket elevators
ETC bucket elevators-conveyors are designed and manufactured to optimise transportation of loose products of different consistencies (bulk products: granular, powder, sticky products, etc), ensuring that they will arrive in perfect condition.

Equipped with one or more loading / discharge stations, they provide horizontal, vertical and diagonal transportation.
Because of their special modular configuration, these elevators-conveyors can even be used in confined spaces, guaranteeing the transportation of large volumes/capacities in all situations.

HOW THE SYSTEM WORKS
The buckets are filled with the product while they are moving and then emptied by means of electro-pneumatic or fixed systems.
The elevator is driven by a gear motor immersed in oil, with torque limiting device connecting directly by means of a joint to the drive shaft located in the orizontal top part. 
Loading stations: depending on requirements, ETC bucklet elevators-conveyors are fitted with one or more loading stations. The product must be fed proportionately and evenly; (dosing units suitable for specific requirements can be supplied on request). Rubber strips or brushes prevent the product from spilling out of the loading stations.
Discharge stations: ETC bucket elevators-conveyors are normally supplied with a single discharge station ("fixed discharge"). On request by customers, several discharge stations can be installed with buckets which rotate 180° using special pivots and cams placed on the device ("electro-pneumatic intermediate discharge"). The openings throught which the product is discharged are usually fitted with a chute connecting them to silos, packaging machines or other systems.
