857 Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain

857 Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain


Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain is a type of conveyor chain that is widely used in various industries. It is a vertical and continuous conveying equipment that can lift and transport different types of materials.

Working Principle

Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain works in four stages:

1. Loading stage

The material is filled into the hopper of the Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain at the bottom of the feeding area through gravity, vibration or other auxiliary devices.

2. Vertical lifting stage

After the drive device starts, the conveying chain starts to circulate and drives the connected hopper to rise together. The movement of the chain makes the hopper ascend along the vertical or nearly vertical track.

3. Flipping and unloading stage

The head of the Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain usually has a special structure. When the hopper filled with materials reaches the top, it will pass through a mechanism called the "discharge port" or "flipper". At this position, the hopper is subjected to specific designed guidance and flipping force, causing it to tip or flip.

4. Continuous cycling

After unloading the material, the empty hopper continues to run down to the bottom with the chain and re-enters the feeding area for the next loading cycle.


Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain has a wide range of applications, including but not limited to:

1. Agriculture

It is used in the grain processing industry, such as vertical lifting and conveying of wheat, corn, rice, and other grains.

2. Grain storage

In large-scale grain warehouses, it is used to lift bulk grain from low places to storage tanks or warehouses.

3. Chemical industry

For the vertical transportation of powder and granular chemical raw materials in the chemical raw material production process.

4. Building materials industry

For the efficient lifting and transportation of materials such as sand, stone, and cement clinker in cement plants and sand and gravel yards.

5. Food industry

For the lifting and conveying of various powdered and granular food raw materials or products in flour mills and feed mills.
