Bucket elevator is a high efficiency vertical lifting equipment. The continuous bucket rotation is driven by the bend drum, tail pulleys and driven device. The material is lifted to a specific height and discharged at the top of the bucket elevator system. Hence, the smooth flow of conveying system is very important because a little blockage may affect the whole system and requires maintenance cost. To avoid this situation, there are measures to enhance the discharge rate of bucket elevator machine:
- The characteristics of material conveyed need to be analyzed before operating.
- The cleaning of remnants which stick in the outlet chute and chain need to be done regularly.
- Improve the outlet chute structure in case is too small. Besides that, a new design of outlet chute can be used to replace the blockage one.
- Maintenance should be done periodically to avoid blockage since the maintenance after blockage and low discharge rate is quite difficult.
