Bucket elevator

Bucket elevator

Bucket Elevators combine vertical and horizontal transportation of bulk materials in one integral unit and represent a unique and highly effective solution to your bulk material conveyor needs.
Bucket Elevators are a simple but effective method of elevating free flowing and semi-free flowing bulk materials.
Their inherent simplicity makes them a popular choice for bulk material handling and processing applications such as food and feed, mineral and mining, petrochemical, plastics, etc.
Belts or chains are used as pulling media depending on the graininess and temperature of the product being conveyed. Various materials are available for every component of the bucket conveyor.

The materials are chosen based on the requirements relating to compatibility, temperature and the physical and chemical properties of the materials being transported.

Transportation lengths of up to 50 m vertically or 100 m horizontally and conveyor capacities of up to 100 m³/h can be achieved. All continuous bucket conveyors are also available with an ATEX certificate for dust explosion zones 20 to 22.


Pendulum Bucket Elevator

The Pendulum Bucket Elevator is the ideal solution for conveying fragile and delicate granular products, whose integrity must be preserved.

The buckets are able to swing. There is no connection between neighboring buckets, which means that each bucket can be individually tipped or rotated. The buckets and chains are available in a wide range of different materials.

The wide range of models allows its use in many sectors, from food, to chemical, to animal feed. The possibility to have a variable number of loading and unloading points, guarantees maximum flexibility of use.

Our bucket conveyors can of course also be equipped with CIP cleaning stations. With the CIP station, buckets and chains can be automatically cleaned either with water or compressed air.

Through the use of diverse materials for rubber chains and buckets, the bucket elevators can be adapted to meet the particular requirements. Our continuous bucket elevators have proven themselves in numerous product areas: powders and granulates, chemicals, building materials, recycling, ceramics, plastics and much more.


Particularly in the food industry, the advantages of our continuous and pendulum bucket elevators are clear to see. Using original our rubber chains, no lubricants are required, which might otherwise contaminate the goods being conveyed.
Rubber chains and buckets are available in a food-grade design, with certificates adhering to European (EU directives) and American (FDA) standards.
