Bucket Elevator

Bucket elevators from 5 - 15 tons per hour are imported and again from 150 tons and larger. Other capacity elevators are manufactured by ABC Hansen Africa. Bucket elevators allows the relatively gentle handling of products and is much less abrasive on product than augers. Elevators can be equipped with down pipes for transporting the product to nearby silos or locations while the height increases directly in relation to the horizontal distance to be loaded to as the angle should not be less than 40 - 45 degrees. The down side of downpipes is relatively fast wear and tear so commercial enterprises would elect the elevator to load into a conveyor whether chain or belt, for horizontal conveyance or may require downpipes to be lined. ABC Hansen offers poly-urethane lining on such elevators. Distributors from two to five ways are optional. The ABC Hansen Weaver gravity cleaners are optional and a good way to separate fines.
