Bucket elevator

Bucket elevator, also known as bucket conveyor or bucket elevator, is a mechanical conveying equipment used for conveying powder, granular, block and other materials in the vertical direction.

The bucket elevator has simple structure, high transmission efficiency, and large conveying height, and is widely used in grain, oil, feed, chemical fertilizer, ore and other industries.

Causes and Elimination Methods of Reduced Bucket Elevator Conveying Volume

  1. It may be that the bucket belt is slipping, and the cause of the slipping should be found out to prevent it.
  2. It may be that the amount of feed is not enough, and the amount of feed should be increased.
  3. It may also be that there is a large amount of returned materials, the reason should be checked and the amount of returned materials should be eliminated as much as possible.
  4. It may also be that the number of buckets is not enough, and there are many skewed, damaged or falling off buckets. The integrity of the buckets should be checked frequently, and damaged buckets should be replaced in time.

In summary

Bucket elevator is a commonly used material conveying equipment, which is widely used in various industrial and mining places. During the daily operation of the bucket elevator, it is necessary to strictly abide by the technical requirements of the equipment.

If a series of failures such as bucket belt slippage and reduced conveying capacity occur, it needs to be shut down in time, and can only be put into production after passing the maintenance and overhaul, so as to ensure the normal and stable operation of the bucket elevator equipment and improve production efficiency.
