Grain or powder handling equipment
bucket elevator or belt conveyor is the transporting or delivering machine, here we introduce two types, one is belt conveyor, the other one is bucket elevator. Both of them is used to deliver or transport grain powder materials to next process, you will seen them everywhere in the complete production line or plant or factory.
1. Belt conveyor
belt conveyor is used for conveying bulk density of less than 1.67/ t / cubic meter, easy to transport powder, granular, small block of low-abrasive materials and bags of materials, such as coal, gravel, sand, cement, fertilizer, and grain. Required working temperature is less than 60℃. The form of belt conveyor assembly can be determined according to user requirements, transmission can be electric drum can also be used with a drive rack drive. It can be flat or tilt, allowing angle max 20°. It is long service life and simple maintain, can be fixed in the workshop or be in the open air, can be move with tire or wheels. It is can be customized production and flexible configuration. It is very common seen in the fertilizer production line or mineral screening plant.
2. Bucket elevator
Chain or belt type vertical bucket elevator apply to transporting materials vertically such as powder, pellet, particulate, even if with more surface friction, for example food, coal, cement, granular ore, etc. The lifting height is up to 60 meters, allowing working temperature less than 250℃, adopting automatic gravity tension device, that makes the chain or belt keep constant tension, no slip or take off.
