Bucket elevators are conveyor systems that transport large quantities of bulk material vertically upwards. This requires high drive power that depends on the bucket's capacity and the relevant conveyor height.
It means that all the system components must be able to deal with the harsh and difficult operating conditions. A high level of reliability and availability of the components is also important in order to keep idling times to a minimum.
Our robust and high-torque drive solutions impressively meet the demanding requirements for bucket elevators:
In some instances the bucket elevator is only allowed to operate at a reduced speed, such as during maintenance. That's why our bucket elevator drive has a directly mounted auxiliary drive from our modular system. It ensures that the necessary slow movement is provided when the main motor is shut down.
This auxiliary drive is available in the "empty bucket" or "full bucket" designs. All the components in our application solution are perfectly adapted to the relevant application.
