Elevator Buckets and Bolts – Sizes and Styles Available
Consistent profile shape assured uniform discharge characteristics over the entire bucket range.
Direct interchange and replacement of style CC and European pressed steel buckets. No modifications to your elevator are needed.
Profitable, High-Speed Handling
Tested and proven designs, allow a direct, compact discharge path for improved, high-speed performance.
Nonmetallic materials eliminate the possibility of explosion causing sparking from bent and torn steel buckets.
Ease of Installation
Lighter weight aids in mounting buckets and reduces load on belt and running components. Nonmetallic materials eliminate hazardous sharp edges of steel buckets.
Straight and CC design helps end costly backlegging
Tough and Flexible
Injection molded polyethylene “gives” or “yields” to bypass obstructions in your elevator, allowing the bucket to return to its original shape.
Thick walls and high-impact resins provide exceptional strength.
Accurate & Reliable Capacity Ratings
Equal or greater carrying capacity of equivalent steel buckets. Smooth, rounded front lip aids in filling of bucket.
Engineered designs allow closer bucket spacing for more product throughput per hour. New 9″ and 10″ projection buckets provide maximum capacity in your elevator.
Polyethylene, Nylon or Urethane Style CC-HD, XD & U-HD
A heavy duty agricultural bucket for handling grains, feeds, fertilizers, seeds, salt, sand, chemicals, and a variety of other free flowing materials. Polyethylene is ideal for most appli- cations, while nylon or urethane is recommended for highly abrasive products or extremely high throughput elevators.
Polyethylene, Nylon or Urethane Low Profile
The same CC-HD,XD or U-HD style agricultural duty bucket as described above only modified to a “low profile” to allow closer spacing on the belt. Used to increase bucket elevator capacity over what can be achieved using conventional buckets and spacings.
Polyethylene, Nylon, Urethane Super EuroBucket & EuroBucket
A European style agricultural duty bucket molded in a “low profile” configuration. Super EuroBuckets and EuroBuckets are a direct interchange/replacement of European pressed steel and molded nonmetallic buckets.
Nylon, Polyethylene or Urethane Style AA and AC
An industrial duty bucket for handling foundry sand, sand and gravel, coal, fertilizers, clay, salt and many other industrial materials.
Ductile Iron or Aluminum Style AA and AC
An industrial duty bucket for handling stone, foundry sand, sand and gravel, coal, fertilizers, clay, salt and many other industrial materials. Iron is ideal for large, dense, sluggish products or sharp cutting products such as crushed glass. Aluminum is a light weight bucket for nonabrasive products in hot applications (2500F to 4000F /1210C to 2040C) where nonmetallic buckets can not be used because of the high temperature.
Fabricated Steel Style CCB, Nu-Hy and Sweetheart
Agricultural duty buckets for handling grain, feeds, fertilizers, seeds, salt, sand, chemicals, food products, and a variety of other free flowing materials. Steel is ideal for sharp cutting products such as crushed glass and hot applications (over 2750F/ 1350C) where nonmetallic buckets can not be used. Diggers used in conjunction with plastic buckets to aid in breaking up tough materials.
Fabricated Steel Continuous
An agricultural and/or industrial duty bucket designed for use on “continuous type” bucket elevators. Runs at slow speed for gentle handling of a wide range of sluggish or fragile materials. Select sizes available in nylon.
