859 Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain


Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain is a type of conveyor chain used in a variety of applications. It is commonly used in industries such as agriculture, food, chemical, and building materials to lift and transport materials vertically.

Working Principle

Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain works in four stages:

  1. Loading Stage: The buckets on the conveyor chain are filled with materials in the bottom feed area by gravity, vibration, or other auxiliary devices.
  2. Vertical Lifting Stage: When the driving device is started, the conveying chain begins to circulate and drives the connected buckets to rise. The movement of the chain makes the buckets lift along a vertical or nearly vertical track.
  3. Flip Discharge Stage: The head of the bucket elevator conveyor chain is usually equipped with a special structure. When the bucket filled with material reaches the top, it passes through a mechanism called a "discharge port" or "flipper". At this position, the bucket is guided and flipped by specific design forces to make the material pour or flip.
  4. Continuous Cycle Operation: The empty buckets after unloading continue to run down with the chain to the bottom and re-enter the feed zone for the next loading cycle.


Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain is widely used in various fields, including but not limited to:

  1. Agriculture: Vertical lifting and transportation of grains such as wheat, corn, and rice in the food processing industry.
  2. Grain Storage: In large grain warehouses, it is used to lift bulk grains from low places to storage tanks or warehouses.
  3. Chemical Industry: Vertical transportation of powdered or granular chemical materials in the production process of chemical raw materials.
  4. Building Materials Industry: Continuous and efficient lifting and transportation of materials such as sand, stone, and cement clinker in cement plants and gravel yards.
  5. Food Industry: Lifting and transportation of various powdery or granular food raw materials or finished products in places such as flour mills and feed mills.
