Bucket Elevators are used for conveyance of bulk materials which are usually fertilizers and grains. Bucket Elevator is also known as grain leg and it vertically pulls the material upwards by a moving belt. This system is capable of pulling a variety of materials with varying weight. Bucket Elevators may be vertical or inclined and their movement depends on centrifugal force.
Bucket Elevator System is quite similar to conveying system because it has a conveyer belt that is attached to a bucket in which the material to be transferred is placed. The functioning of this system is quite simple. Bucket filled with bulk material is carried by the conveyer belt to the place where material has to be dumped. The empty bucket is then sent back to the place where material to be transferred is stocked to carry more material towards the dumping zone.
The workforce required to run this system is quite less because the procedure of material transfer is fully automated. Operators are required for monitoring the activity of the Bucket Elevator to keep a check on its proper working. This system is also less time-consuming than other systems because it works continuously for a fixed time period without any break.
Sophisticated technologies have improved the working capability of Bucket Elevators. Hazards like people getting hurt by the moving elevator belt and bucket are no more a concern with such systems. Technologically advanced Bucket Elevators are fully covered which reduces the loss of material due to spillage and also prevents accidents that frequently occur in it vicinity.
