Bucket Elevators (also called Bucket Conveyors) are used to vertically convey bulk or loose materials efficiently. Bucket elevators can elevate a variety of bulk materials from light to heavy and from loose, flowing fine materials to larger, partially consolidated “lumps”.
There are options for buckets that are gentle on high value consumer products such as cereals, pasta, confectionery, coins and the like. They are commonly designed in a “Z-Elevator” or “C-Elevator” configuration.
