4 key factors decide the function of bucket elevator

 Bucket elevator can be installed singly or in a system, in order to meet the needs of the site and materials forms. The main parameter of the bucket elevator is according to the handling system, loading and unloading location conditions, production process and the characteristics of transported material,main aspects are as follows:
1. Conveying capacity: it means the amount per hour, usually calculated in weight or volume.
2. Conveying speed: improving the speed can increase the elevating capacity. Especially when use the belt bucket elevator for long distance transporting,it needs to improve the conveying speed, but if use chain bucket elevator you should not, in case of enlarging the burden.
3. Pats dimension: the dimension of parts include belt width, plate width, bucket volume, channel diameters and so on, these dimensions will have an impact on the conveying capacity.
4. Conveying distance: the total distance will have an impact on the total resistance and power

Guide Rail Makes Tripper or Bucket Elevator Perform Better

Guide rail is made of metal or other material to become groove or ridge which is a device that can withstand, fix and guide mobile device or reduce their friction. Longitudinal groove or ridge on the surface of guide rail is used for guiding or fixing machine parts. Moreover, it is also known as sliding rail or linear guides, used in the occasion of linear reciprocating motion. It has a higher rated load and can assume certain torque. At the same time, high-precision linear motion can be achieved in the case of high load.
Guide rail provides a precise operation track for the conveyor tripper car. Matched with the belt conveyor, conveyor tripper car can achieve the aim of discharging materials at any points in the certain length of belt conveyor through moving back and forth on the guide rail.
In general, guide rail is installed in the head, tail and middle part of chain bucket elevator. Also, it is usually made of wear-resistant steel and its surface is quite smooth, so on the one hand it can lessen the friction between chain and guide rail and reduce components depreciation rates, on the other hand it can prevent the chain being off tracking, so as to achieve the purpose of conveying materials efficiently.
PK Machinery adopts the best quality guide rail which is manufactured by Ma'anshan Iron&Steel that is best rail manufacturer in China, and it is used for conveyor tripper car and bucket elevator.

Bucket Elevator Casing Embossing Process

Embossing is commonly seen in the bend place. Generally speaking, according to the force requirements ofbucket elevator middle casing, steel plate will be folded into geometric shapes (such as rectangle, etc.) or grooved shape in order to ensure and strengthen the intensity and stiffness of casing side. Through this kind of technology, it can enhance bucket elevator rigidity so that to prevent its deformation caused by uneven force. Meanwhile, material consumption and investment costs could be saved as well as to ensure the aesthetic appearance.
1. Stiffness Properties Advanced
Stiffness refers to the ability of material or structure to resist elastically deformable. The steel plate intensity and rigidity of bucket elevator casing can be enhanced by embossing process. Therefore it will reduce the casing deformation.
2. Improve Strength Properties
Strength refers to the ability of metallic materials to resist permanent deformation and fracture under the external force. Making a flute in the proper position of bucket elevator casing can increase its local intensity and reduce component breakage costs.
3. Reduce Costs
Ensuring the same intensity and rigidity, it can save steel plate dosage and reduce production costs by embossing process.
