Bucket Elevator Industry

Gentle handling - horizontal-vertical

The pendulum bucket elevator is used for very gentle vertical conveying of all kinds of granular products. This conveyor has the benefit of combining both horizontal and vertical transport in one machine. Adding the very gentle way of transporting, the pendulum bucket elevator is the perfect conveyor for sensitive, corrosive and abrasive products . By means of using different speeds, there’s a wide range of different hourly capacities that can be reached which goes up to 60 m3/h.

Low wear

Due to the absence of any friction forces pendulum bucket elevators are ideal for abrasive products. The bucket elevator knows a long maintenance interval something which is not affected by the abrasiveness of the product.

Corrosive handling

Apollo’s bucket elevators are used on a wide range of applications including handling highly abrasive and corrosive products. Various bucket materials are available ensuring optimal chemical compatibility.

Dust control

Due to the nature of the pendulum bucket elevator where horizontal transport is combined with vertical transport dust levels will be low as there is no open discharge from one conveyor into another. The elevator itself is air-tight and an under pressure can be maintained in the elevator ensuring that no dust is exposed to the environment.

The bucket elevator is designed for extreme high dust levels even when the product is highly abrasive. Through optimal positioned suction points, dust tight bearings and anti-static buckets pollution levels remain very low which contributes to machine reliability and low maintenance.
