The "S Type" configuration as shown in figure 3a fits most conveying-elevating needs. The vertical conveyor section being 90% from the base reduces floor space requirements as needed by incline belts or other conveyor systems.
In the conservation of space or where it is necessary to operate in a restricted area with the Simplex F feeding equipment directly over the inlet point the C type bucket elevator provides the ideal solution. Bottom discharges may be provided in the number and desired locations with fixed, manual or remote electric controls.
Bottom and side discharges
For feeding into any number of processing units, or into a series of holding bins, the Simplex with multiple sides or bottom discharge is ideal. Discharge chutes may be provided on either or both sides of the discharge section, these can be arranged to discharge automatically, manually or remote controlled.
For extreme gentle vibration free conveying in a horizontal plane the Simplex can be furnished as a horizontal conveyor.
This inclined elevator can be provided in almost any desired angle for the most efficient utilisation of space, or where it is necessary to carry over other equipment or under overhead obstructions.
Where the distance between intake and discharge points is restricted the z type model can be provided. The angle of the vertical leg can be varied to permit the maximum conservation of space.
Fig 4c shows a special configuration with multi level intake for feeding at various floor levels. Fig 4d shows a Simplex bucket elevator discharging at various floor levels.
This model is designed to lower fragile products. It eliminated the attraction found when using conventional let down chutes.
