Bucket Elevator: The Ultimate FAQ Guide
What is a bucket elevator used for?
The bucket elevator can convey bulk materials like powder, granular and small blocks, such as coal, cement, sand, clay, stones, chemical fertilizers, food, etc.
How does a bucket elevator work?
Bucket elevator working principle
Bucket elevator adopts inflow feeding, the material flows into the hopper by the plate chain/belt to the top, under the action of material gravity unloading.
There are many bucket elevator specifications, wide lifting capacity; and high production capacity, low energy consumption, can gradually replace other types of hoists.
What is bucket elevator configuration?
The bucket elevator component of Top Device(motor reducer, maintenance platform, top roller wheel, discharge port), Middle Section(coveyor belt/chain, hopper),Bottom Device(inspection window, bearing, tensioning gear, feed port, lower roller).
The bucket elevator parts
What are the specifications of NE chain type bucket elevator?
The NE series plate chain bucket elevator has 10+ models: NE15, NE30, NE50, NE150, NE200, NE300, NE400, NE500, NE600, NE800.
How to avoid an elevator belt with static electricity?
Static electricity is generated by friction in the process of material transportation. Static charge accumulated on the surface of the conveyor belt is not easy to disappear.
When it reaches a certain value, it will generate discharge sparks on the ground object, causing fire or gas explosion.
The plastic antistatic method is mainly to control the generation and accumulation of static electricity.
Control the generation of static electricity is mainly by reducing or preventing friction to reduce the generation of static electricity;
Control the accumulation of static electricity mainly by grounding conduction, increasing the relative humidity of the environment, or adding antistatic agents or conductive materials (such as conductive carbon black, metal powder, etc.) to accelerate the leakage of static electricity and avoid the accumulation of static electricity.
Therefore, it is very important to choose plastic with good insulation.
Please be sure to choose professional bucket elevator manufacturers.

Bucket Elevator Parameter
What is the matter with the bucket elevator not discharging or discharging slowly?
1. The first consideration is the type of bucket elevator. If the grid between the hopper is too small, the raw material will not pass smoothly.
2. Is the drain of the bucket elevator horizontal? or too high? Generally should be about 5mm higher than the discharge port.
3. When working, check whether the discharge outlet is in a horizontal state. If it is not horizontal, it must be adjusted in time.
4. Adjust the angle of the vibration motor up and down the eccentric block. The smaller the angle, the faster the material spreads.
When changing the vibration motor eccentric Angle, should adjust about 5 degrees.
If there are strict requirements for screening accuracy, the motor Angle should not be too small, otherwise, the material will rapidly spread, which is not conducive to the screening effect. In this case, the factory motor angle is 45°.
5. I’m sure many of my friends don’t know how to use a bucket elevator.
Vibrating screen motor Angle adjustment has certain technical content.
Be sure to confirm details with the bucket elevator supplier before installation to avoid unnecessary trouble in the future.
