Bucket elevator is one of the demanding machine in PK Machinery. Often, we received enquiries from customers regarding the conveying system of a bucket elevator. Therefore, this article serves to tell u more about the factors that affect the conveying system of a bucket elevator.
- Bucket elevator’s speed
The bucket elevator’s speed can affect the conveying capacity of the machine. High conveying speed can increase the conveying capacity of the bucket elevator machine. Bear in mind that when conveyor belt is used as the traction, the conveying speed can be increased. However, when chain is used as the traction, the conveying speed should not be too high to avoid increasing power load. For high speed belt bucket elevator, take note of the vibration and noise especially when starting and braking of the bucket elevator.
- Features of bucket elevator
This includes the width of conveyor belt, the capacity of the bucket, the diameter of the pipe, the size of the container and etc. These features will affect directly the transmission capacity of the hoist.
- Conveying length and angle of the bucket elevator equipment
The conveying length and the angle of the bucket elevator will directly affect the total resistance and the power consumed by the bucket elevator.
