The Link Chain Bucket Elevator is used to lift the material from a lower to higher level for further processing. The Belt Bucket Elevator is used for Cement, Fertilizer plants and other plants to convey/ transport the material as Limestone, Slag, Cement, Flyash, Raw Meal etc,,
Drive to the Chain Bucket Elevator is given by an electric motor of ample rating via a triple reduction bevel helical gear box, a fluid coupling etc. The gear box has provision for hold back to prevent the reversing of buckets in case the elevator stops suddenly for any reason. Provision is also made for an auxiliary drive through a geared motor for creep speed / inching operation used during maintenance work for inspecting the chain and the buckets.
Buckets for conveying the material are fastened on to the steel chain of sufficient strength (link chain in double strand & shackles).
Zero speed switch mounted on the boot casing monitors whether the elevator is running at normal speed. If there is any variation beyond a certain preterimined limit, the zero speed switches off the bucket elevator in order to prevent any major breakdown.
Level indicator at boot section monitors the level of material in boot casing to avoid flooding.
Design Capacity for material conveying.- 50-500 TPH
