P100F371-G4 Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain


Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain is a type of conveyor chain that is used in various industries for vertical material conveying purposes. This chain consists of a series of buckets attached to it, and it works on the principle of continuous cycle operation. The chain moves upwards with the help of a driving device, carrying the attached buckets with it, and then it moves downwards with empty buckets.

Material Conveying Principle

  1. Loading Stage:

    The buckets on the Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain are filled with materials at the bottom through gravity, vibration, or other auxiliary devices.

  2. Vertical Lifting Stage:

    When the driving device is started, the conveyor chain starts running in a cycle, lifting the attached buckets along a vertical or close-to-vertical track.

  3. Discharging Stage:

    The head of the bucket elevator conveyor is usually equipped with a special structure called the "discharge port" or "flipper." When the bucket filled with material reaches the top, it passes through this mechanism and is guided and flipped to dump the material.

  4. Continuous Cycle Operation:

    The empty bucket then continues to move downwards with the chain to the bottom and re-enters the loading area for the next loading cycle.

Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain Application


  1. Agriculture:

    Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain is widely used in the processing of grain such as wheat, corn, rice, etc. for vertical lifting and transportation purposes.

  2. Grain Storage:

    It is used in large grain silos to lift bulk grains from the ground to high-level storage tanks or warehouses.

  3. Chemical Industry:

    For vertical conveying of powder and granular chemical raw materials in chemical production processes.

  4. Construction Materials:

    It is used in cement factories, sand and gravel yards for the continuous and efficient lifting and transportation of building materials such as sand, stone, and cement clinker.

  5. Food Industry:

    It is used in flour mills, feed mills, and other places to handle various types of powdered or granular food materials or finished products for lifting and transportation purposes.
