The basics of bucket elevators

A bucket elevator shares some characteristics with other mechanical conveyors, but usually conveys dry bulk materials vertically rather than horizontally. This article explains how a bucket elevator operates, discusses types of bucket elevators and buckets, then details how to select a bucket elevator, maintain the unit, and order replacement buckets.

A bucket elevator can carry powders, grains, and other materials as high as several hundred feet. The equipment includes a series of uniformly fed buckets attached to an endless spliced loop of belt or chain inside an enclosure.
