The bucket elevator is equipped with some protection switches. The protection switches will give early warning of possible accidents, and also to be connected to the central control room for real-time monitoring of the operation of the bucket elevator.
The gearbox can be equipped with auxiliary drive according to the need. When the main motor has an emergency failure or the bucket elevator needs maintenance, the auxiliary drive will start and the bucket will run at slow speed.
Gravity+Spring tensioning device is used in the tail part of the bucket elevator to realize automatic tensioning. Constant tension force can be maintained after one installation adjustment to avoid belt slipping or chain taking off.
The drive pulley of belt bucket elevator can adopt segmented diamond-rubber plate. When the drive pulley wears out, just replace the diamond-rubber plate which reduces the maintenance cost and save repair time.

FEECO has been building custom bucket elevators for over 65 years. We offer a variety of bucket elevator designs and sizes to handle materials ranging from dry dusty powders such as fly ash, to heavy materials such as iron ore pellets. Bucket elevators can be ordered in a number of configurations, including centrifugal belt, centrifugal chain, continuous belt, continuous single chain and continuous double chain.
Centrifugal bucket elevators are chosen when there is a need to move large amounts of material quickly. Instead of direct loading, buckets serve as the loading apparatus, scooping material up from the boot or inlet section. For this reason, durable buckets should be selected with this design. Centrifugal force at the head pulley throws material from the buckets into the discharge chute. The buckets are spaced in wider intervals to prevent discharge interference from the preceding bucket and to assure maximum fill of the buckets at the boot end while moving at a higher speed. The design of this style yields optimized material fill and reduced interference between buckets.
Continuous bucket elevators are designed to handle friable, fragile materials to minimize product degradation or damage. They are also ideal for handling sluggish or abrasive materials. Continuous bucket elevators are also used to convey light, free-flowing matter where aeration of the material must be avoided.
Material is fed into the buckets from an inlet chute. Buckets are designed for gentle discharge; the buckets are closely spaced on the belt or chain to allow the material to flow over the backside of the preceding bucket, whose extended sides form a chute to guide the material into the discharge spout. Direct loading of the material, combined with the slow speed of this elevator type, avoids the throwing action associated with centrifugal style elevators, making it ideal for use with fragile materials.
Chain bucket elevators provide a higher-capacity, more durable handling option. They are best for jobs requiring rugged handling of large particles, or materials that are heated or have a potential for combustion.
All FEECO equipment and process systems can be outfitted with the latest in automation controls from Rockwell Automation. The unique combination of proprietary Rockwell Automation controls and software, combined with our extensive experience in process design and enhancements with hundreds of materials provides an unparalleled experience for customers seeking innovative process solutions and equipment.
Bucket elevators can handle a variety of materials, and therefore are used in many different industries and applications, though generally, they are not suited for wet, sticky materials, or materials that are stringy or tend to mat or agglomerate. They are frequently found in bulk material handling settings such as power plants, fertilizer plants, pulp & paper mills, and steel production facilities. Some of the most common materials for which bucket elevators are employed include:
Flexibility: Make sure the bucket elevator manufacturer is prepared to tailor the unit to the specific requirements of the material being handled, as well as any operational goals. This will ensure an efficient and reliable handling solution with long-term dependability.
Material Experience: Many bucket elevator manufacturers specialize in a specific industry. In choosing a manufacturer, ensure they have experience around the unique challenges of the material to be handled.
Aftermarket Support: Select a manufacturer that has the capabilities to service and maintain their equipment for a maximum return on investment. This includes provision of spare parts, training, installation assistance, and more.

FEECOs bucket elevators are designed and fabricated to the highest quality standards. With over 65 years of experience, our equipment is especially valued in tough applications that require a high amount of ingenuity to achieve success.
In 1972, we realized that the elevator bucket industry needed someone to create a bucket without the limitations of steel. By producing stronger and more durable plastic buckets, we eliminated the inherent problems of steel.
In normal working conditions, elevator buckets are exposed to relentless punishment. Weve extensively tested our buckets under real-world conditions to ensure that they stay strong under pressure better than any other.
Our in-house manufacturing capabilities and dedicated injection-molding machines allow us to facilitate an expedient, cost-controlled process. These innovative systems help us create products that consistently provide better performance and more value for our customers.
