P500F4 Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain

P500F4 Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain


Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain, as the name suggests, is a type of conveyor chain that is used in bucket elevators. Bucket elevators are commonly used in industries where materials need to be transported vertically. The chain is designed to handle heavy loads and can operate under harsh conditions.


Working Principle

  • 1. Loading: The buckets on the Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain are filled with material in the loading area at the bottom using gravity, vibration, or other auxiliary devices.
  • 2. Vertical Lifting: When the drive device is started, the conveyor chain begins to run in a cycle and lifts the buckets connected to it. The movement of the chain causes the buckets to move vertically or close to vertically.
  • 3. Flipping and Unloading: The head of the bucket elevator usually has a special structure where the buckets, when full, reach the top and pass through a mechanism called a "discharge port" or "flipper." At this point, the buckets are guided and flipped by a specific design force, causing them to tilt or flip.
  • 4. Continuous Cycle Operation: Empty buckets, after unloading material, continue to run with the chain to the bottom and re-enter the loading area for the next loading cycle.


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