P152F172 Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain


Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain is a type of conveyor chain that is used in various industries for transporting materials vertically or almost vertically. It consists of a series of buckets attached to a chain or belt, which is driven by a motor and is used to move materials from one level to another.



Working Principle

  1. Loading Stage:

    The buckets on the Bucket Elevator Conveyor Chain are filled with materials using gravity, vibration, or other auxiliary devices in the bottom feed zone.

  2. Vertical Lifting Stage:

    When the driving device starts, the conveying chain starts to circulate and drives the connected buckets to ascend together. The movement of the chain makes the buckets move along a vertical or nearly vertical track.

  3. Flip Discharging Stage:

    The top of the bucket elevator conveyor chain usually has a special structure. When a bucket filled with materials 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.

  4. Continuous Cycle Operation:

    The empty bucket that has finished unloading the materials continues to run down along the chain to the bottom and re-enters the feed zone for the next loading cycle.



  1. Agriculture:

    Used for vertical transport of grain in the food processing industry, such as wheat, corn, rice, etc.

  2. Grain Storage:

    Used in large grain storage facilities to lift and store bulk grain from low to high storage tanks or warehouses.

  3. Chemical Industry:

    Used for vertical transportation of powder and granular chemical raw materials in the chemical production process.

  4. Building Materials Industry:

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

  5. Food Industry:

    Used for handling various powder and granular food raw materials or finished products in flour mills, feed mills, etc.
