Buckets

Bucket Types

S Type

This bucket is designed for use in the S type Simplex only. This series is used for the majority of end and side discharge applications. The S type can be used in all bucket elevator configurations except the C type. These buckets are designed to operate at standard speeds as listed in the catalogue. Slow speed applications are not recommended due to the bucket shape. When operating at reduced speeds smaller products, while discharging, may fall on to the trailing edges of the preceding buckets.

Bucket Materials

Standard simplex buckets are available in sturdy cast aluminium alloy, food grade plastic or fabricated mild or stainless steel. Cast aluminium buckets may be supplied with interiors polished and anodised, or with Teflon or Epoxy coating, at additional cost. Buckets are easily removed for cleaning, yet cannot fall out. Standard plastic buckets are Polycarbonate but may be furnished in Polystyrene, Polypropylene, Polyethylene or Nylon. These are injected and high pressure moulded into one sturdy integral unit to withstand bending and twisting, resist breakage and provide long, low wear service. Polycarbonate buckets will with stand temperatures up to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.

C Type

This bucket was originally designed for use in the c series simplex. Due to control requirements the c type operates at slower speeds than the s type. This bucket design allows for the positive discharge at very slow speeds. Due to special application requirements it was necessary to incorporate the c type bucket in the s configuration. Examples would be when bottom discharge is required or extremely slow bucket speeds. This type of unit is designed as CS.
