Pendulum bucket elevators are used for very gentle vertical conveying of all kinds of granular product. Especially on the seed sector, they are the most suitable conveyors.
Pendulum bucket elevators are used for very gentle verticalconveying of all kinds of granular product. Especially on the seed sector, theyare the most suitable conveyors. They can alsa manage big horizontal distanes,thus being able to replace the combination of belt conveyor and normal bucketelevator.
The incoming product is fed to the pendulum bucket elevatorcontinuously and very gently by means of a vibratory feeder. The edges of thebuckets overlap each other in the inlet section and therefore prevent spillageof kernels. Due to the pivoted mounting of buckets in the chain, buckets keeptheir horizontal position all through the way around in the conveyor until theyfinally reach the outlet. There, each bucket is tilted and the product fallingout is gently led into the outlet hopper.
The pendulum bucket elevator can be equipped with a numberof several inlets and outlets. Inlets can work at the same time, while outletsare used singular, meaning only one outlet being active momentarily
-Combination of horizontal and vertical transport
-Low energy demand
-Low maintenance demand
-Flexibility in installation
