FTM bucket elevator is suitable for the vertical conveying of powder, granular, small size and other scattered materials with small grinding suction ability, such as gypsum powder, coal, cement, crushed ore, etc. At work, the hopper will scoop up the material from the bottom stock bin, and as the conveyor belt or chain is lifted to the top, then turn down bypass the top wheel, finally the bucket elevator will pour the material into the cavity of the next process. Currently, the maximum lifting height of bucket elevator in the industry is up to 40m.
Wide application range, large delivery capacity; It can be used for the lifting of small solid materials in most fields, many models can be chosen, and the large lifting machines can be customized.
Less energy consumption, higher hoisting height;The design method of the inflow feed and the gravity-induced unloading make the bucket elevator require little power. The high strength alloy chain determines the higher height that can be raised.
Reliable operation and long service life; The reasonable structure and dynamic configuration make the material upgrade with less colliding, which reduces the wear of the machine.
Key note of bucket elevator chosen
The key to choose the type of bucket elevator correctly is whether it can make full use of its efficiency to meet the production needs and maximize the productivity.
The following five selection criteria can help you find the right equipment:
Item parameter For example; material's name, material's characteristic, actual throughput, needing height and so on.
Hopper type; According to the material's humidity and viscosity, you can select from a shallow hopper and deep hopper. The shallow Hopper's front wall has large slope and small depth, which is suitable for the delivery of wet and poor mobility materials. However, the deep Hopper's front wall has small slope and great depth, which is suitable for transporting dry and good liquidity materials.
Type of traction component; You can choose according to lifting height and material's temperature. The belt-type bucket elevator has the advantages of low cost, less weight, high speed, smooth work and small noise, so it is widely used.
Loading characteristics and unloading characteristics; It can be selected according to the characteristics of material, speed of operation and selection of traction components
The way of installation; You can choose that according to technological requirements. Because the traction component of tilting bucket elevator needs to add the device that supports itself during the overhang, the structure is complicated, so the vertical bucket elevator is generally used.
