HDPE: Tough and flexible, suitable for handling grains, foodstuffs, and other products with no sharp edges and material that has a bulk density of less than 1g/cm³ . 
Nylon: High impact and abrasion resistance, better heat resistance and are well suited for handling hot, abrasive and sticky products. 
PU: Extremely abrasion resistance, tough and flexible, and are suitable for handling sharp, cutting and sticky products. 
Mild Steel: General purpose, long life, well suited to agricultural and industrial products. 
Stainless Steel: Food grade, corrosive resistance, suitable for food and high temperature applications.

ELEVATOR BUCKET VENTING

A venting bucket can improve the efficiency of some bucket elevators when handling certain products. On dense materials such as lour, meals, and mash feeds, the vents allow air to escape through the cup as it fills, which permits the cup to fill more completely. During discharge, air can return through the cups as it empties, thus preventing a vacuum that could hold some of the products in the cup and cause backlegging.

On extremely light materials such as alfalfa meal, screenings and bran, a vented bucket not only minimizes blowing of the product during loading and discharge, but also reduces air turbulence in the leg as the bucket travels empty down the return side of the elevator. A reduction in air currents minimizes the vacuum which can draw a light product through the down leg and back to the boot.

We have four standard patterns available which offer varying amounts of air release for the handling of most products. Custom venting is available upon request.
