Bucket elevator is one of those high demand machinery in the industrial sectors. It is widely used in the feed, flour and rice mills; oil, starch and grain factories. Do you know there are 3 ways of discharging materials in a bucket elevator? Continue reading this.
Generally, the bucket elevator has different ways of discharging materials such as centrifugal type, gravity type and hybrid type.
- Centrifugal type
– Using centrifugal force to unload the materials from the discharging outlet. This type of discharging in bucket elevator machine is suitable for fine, dry material with fast lifting speed.
- Gravitational type
– Using the effect of gravity to discharge materials along with the buckets. This type of unloading is suitable for large and fragile materials.
- Hybrid type
– By using centrifugal force and the gravitational force. This type of discharging bucket elevator equipment is applicable for material of poor fluidity and high moisture content.
