Bucket elevator


The bucket elevator adopts inflow feeding without bucket digging. There is little extrusion and collision between materials. The materials flow into the hopper and are lifted to the top by the plate chain, and the materials are unloaded by themselves under the action of material gravity.


Bucket elevator is suitable for conveying powdery, granular and small block materials without grinding and with small grinding property.

Bucket Elevator Characteristics

  • The driving power is small, the belt bucket elevator capacity is large, and the inflow feeding, inductive unloading, and large-capacity hoppers are densely arranged.
  • Wide lifting range. This type of lifting machine has less requirements on the types and characteristics of materials.
  • Chain bucket elevators can not only upgrade general powdery and small granular materials, but also upgrade materials with greater abrasiveness. Good airtightness  with less environmental pollution.
  • Long service life. The feeding of the hoist adopts the inflow type, no need to use bucket to dig the material, and there is little extrusion and collision between the materials. This belt bucket elevator is designed to ensure that materials are rarely scattered during feeding and unloading, which reduces mechanical wear.
  • Good operation reliability, advanced design principles and processing methods ensure the reliability of the whole machine operation. The lifting height is high, and the hoist runs smoothly, so a higher lifting height can be achieved.
  • Modular design, safe and convenient to replace accessories.

Types of bucket elevators

  • Z-type bucket elevator: it is applicable to the elevator for conveying bulk, granular, powdery and other loose materials at a single level, especially for the elevator requiring single machine multi-point feeding and multi-point unloading.
  • Vertical bucket elevator: suitable for conveying medium and large, fragile and abrasive materials, such as lump coal, ore, pebble and coke
  • Ring chain bucket elevator: suitable for conveying powdery, granular and small block materials without grinding and with small grinding property
  • Plate chain bucket elevator: vertically lift medium, large and abrasive materials
  • Centrifugal bucket elevator 
  • Continuous bucket elevator

Bucket Elevator Advantages

  • It can be customized according the requirements.
  • Bucket elevator with small footprint.
  • Bucket elevators are capable of handling large volumes of material.


Bucket elevator can handle variety of materials.Widely used in grain and oil, feed, fertilizer, mining, ports, power plants and many other industries.

Common problems when using bucket elevator

  • Maintenance.Bucket elevators are complex machines.
  • Mess and Wastage.A common issue is a belt coming off-track. Poor belt tracking can result in worn buckets, which are then unable to hold material so well.
  • Jams and blockages.the granular nature of many of the materials commonly moved by a bucket elevator makes them prone to jams and blockages. For example, typical areas of blockages include the equipment frame, chain links, belt, and other moving parts.

Bucket Elevator Q&A

  • Hopper belt slipping
    • Cause: when the elevator lifts materials, the hopper belt tension is not enough and slips; Overload transportation increases the resistance distance
    • Measures: adjust the hopper belt tensioning device; Check for overload
  • Hopper belt deviation
    • Cause: the transmission shafts of the head wheel and the bottom wheel are not installed in the same vertical plane, and the hopper belt joint is not correct
    • Measures: adjust the head wheel and bottom wheel
  • Hopper falling off
    • Cause: the position of feed inlet is too low; Poor hopper quality; Excessive feeding; The deposits in the base were not cleared before startup, and the historical materials were greatly impacted
    • Measures: adjust the position of feed inlet; Check the hopper before operation
