864 Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain

864 Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain


Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain is a conveyor chain used to vertically transport bulk materials. It is widely used in various industries such as agriculture, food, chemical, and construction. The bucket elevator conveyor chain is equipped with buckets that are used to contain the material being transported. The chain moves the buckets, which carry the material up to the top of the conveyor where it is either dumped or transferred to another conveyor.


The Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain works in the following four stages:

1. Loading Stage

The material is filled into the buckets at the bottom of the conveyor using gravity, vibration, or some other auxiliary device.

2. Vertical Lifting Stage

When the driving device is started, the conveyor chain starts to circulate and drives the buckets to move upwards. The movement of the chain causes the buckets to move along a vertical or nearly vertical path.

3. Discharge Stage

At the top of the conveyor, the full buckets usually pass through a mechanism called a "discharge outlet" or "flipper". At this point, the buckets are guided and flipped so that the material is dumped or transferred to another conveyor.

4. Continuous Cycle Operation

After the material is discharged, the empty buckets continue to move down with the chain to the bottom of the conveyor and enter the loading area for the next cycle.


The Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain has various applications in different industries:

1. Agriculture

For vertical lifting and transportation of grains such as wheat, corn, and rice in the food processing industry.

2. Grain Storage

For lifting bulk grain from low areas to high storage tanks or warehouses in large grain storage facilities.

3. Chemical Industry

For vertical transportation of powdered or granular chemical raw materials in the production process of chemical products.

4. Construction Industry

For continuous and efficient vertical lifting and transport of materials such as sand, stone, and cement in cement plants and sand and gravel yards.

5. Food Industry

For the vertical lifting and transportation of various powdered or granulated food raw materials or finished products in flour mills, feed mills, and other places.
