Vertical Bucket Elevator


The Unitfine’s UD and UH bucket elevator is considered as a premium fixed conveying equipment. It can operate with extraordinary efficiency and effectiveness, thus, resulting in quality outputs. It is designed to give out the best service for its stakeholders.

The bucket elevator is primarily used in vertically conveying powders, particle, and tiny lump materials continuously. It can be explicitly applied in hauling both frangible and non-frangible materials such as feed, flour, rice, oil, starch, grains, abrasives, cheese ball, cookies, potato slice, fried chips, prawn crackers, crispy rice, dog food fish feed, American almonds, pistachio, medicine, amongst others.

A bucket elevator is a mechanical device used to convey materials vertically or on an inclined plane. It typically consists of a series of buckets attached to a belt or chain that moves in a continuous loop, allowing it to lift materials from a lower level to a higher level. The working principle of a bucket elevator can be summarized in the following steps:

Material Loading: The process begins with the loading of material into the buckets at the bottom of the elevator. These buckets are usually attached at regular intervals to the belt or chain.

Conveying: As the belt or chain moves in a continuous loop, the buckets are carried from the lower level to the upper level. The design of the buckets and the speed of the belt or chain ensure that the material is scooped up and carried along.

Discharge: When the buckets reach the top of the elevator, they tip over or are inverted, allowing the material to be discharged into a chute, conveyor, or another processing system. The buckets may have mechanisms to facilitate this tipping action.

Return: After the material has been discharged, the empty buckets continue to move downward on the return side of the belt or chain, ready to be loaded again at the bottom.

Key components of a bucket elevator include:

Buckets: These are the containers that hold and transport the material. They are typically made of metal, plastic, or other durable materials and are attached to the belt or chain at regular intervals.

Belt or Chain: The continuous loop that carries the buckets and moves them from the bottom to the top and back down again. It is driven by a motor and pulley system.

Drive Mechanism: A motor and pulley system provide the necessary power to move the belt or chain and lift the material.

Head and Tail Pulleys: These pulleys help guide and tension the belt or chain and are essential for the proper operation of the elevator.

Bucket elevators are commonly used in various industries, such as agriculture, mining, manufacturing, and bulk material handling, to efficiently move bulk materials like grains, fertilizers, ores, and more vertically between different levels of a facility. They offer a reliable and efficient means of material transportation while minimizing spillage and dust generation. Proper maintenance and safety precautions are important when working with bucket elevators to ensure their safe and effective operation.



Such a wide range of application, therefore, makes this model an authority on its own. And that helps in minimizing expenses if you would be buying specialized bucket elevators to adapt to various materials. With the models of Unitfine, the functions are all rolled into one.

This product is ideal for the listing of frangible and non-frangible material such as cheese ball, cookies, potato slice, fried chips, prawn crackers, crispy rice, dog food, fish feed, american almonds, pistachios and medicine and others.

The bucket elevator has a bucket volume of 1.8 L, 3.6 L, and 6.5 L while its bucket materials range from PP, SS304, and ABS. It’s made up of both mild steel and stainless steel, harmonized in just the right manner to ensure quality. It has both a single discharge port and a multi-discharge port.

Moreover, its output ranges from 4-6M3/H, 6.5-8M3/H and 5.5-12M3/H. Its voltage also varies from 220/240V to 380/415/440V though such can be adjusted as per order. Further, it has a conveying capacity of 3-10 m³/h, a recommended rate. Additionally, its speed is also adjustable, therefore, making it easy to fix possible lapses and inconveniences.

The bucket elevator entirely depends on the operation of centrifugal force that will deliver the materials towards the discharge chute. Good thing, the Unitfine model can be operated at high speed to do just that. It is typically designed to meet your manufacturing needs.

By the way, the Unitfine offers a variant of models such as the Z Type Bucket Elevator, Bucket Plus Tumbler Sieve with Bucket Elevator Chains, and more importantly, the UTD Type Bucket Elevator.

The UTD Type Bucket Elevator has a bearing temperature sensor; plug switch/chute blocked detector; belt misalignment sensor and head pulley alignment sensor; belt speed and an upper belt misalignment sensor Pos. A for plastic buckets and Pos. B for steel buckets; Plug Switch/chute blocked detector; Belt speed and a lower belt misalignment sensor for Pos. A for plastic buckets and Pos. B for steel buckets; and an under speed/slip sensor.

With all these central and essential features contained on the bucket elevators of the Unitfine, you are assured of the quality of operation and the outputs to be generated. There may be various brands of bucket elevator out there in the market. But Unitfine’s models are carefully and innovatively designed and structured to meet your standards.
