The bucket elevator, which provides to transport the grain as vertically, are designed from 25 thp to 1200 thp capacity according to request. Bucket elevators consist of head, trunk and boot sections which are completely bolt connected. Bolt connected structure expedites the assembly, service and maintenance of the bucket elevators.
Head section is a strong construction manufactured from galvanized according to the model. Front section of the head is covered by polyethylene in order to avoid abrasion during unloading process of the grain. It has some specification which provide easiness to user such as maintenance and cleaning door (optionally as grilled) handy opening and closing members. Three pieces separable head section and bearings provide easy access during maintenance. Optional dust explosion outlet in the upper part of the head section (with switch) , belt sliding sensor, round control sensor, coupling, motor guard parts are available in elevator safety package.
Cleaning guides in the elevator boot section, tensioning mechanism to tighten the belt, inspection covers for cleaning/maintenance are Standard in all models. Optional features are re-feeding unit, magnet mounted to the inlet safety sensors are available.
The assembly could be more precise with the trunk lengths of 3m- 2,4m- 2m- 1,2m- 1m and welded flanges. Trunk joint member leads a good alignment and strong construction. Bolted assembly brings easy installation.
Standard trunk with inspection door allows the operator to view buckets and Access to belt and buckets would be easier. Optionally, dust explosion outlet (with switch) and dust collection outlet are available.
Modular rubber coated structure of drums allow easy Access and maintenance. Bucket elevator belts are high quality and durable against wear, high temperature and oil. Standard buckets are manufactured from high density polyethylene. Optional steel buckets are available. Bucket elevators have ergonomic structure which allows grain flow regularly. They could be used in the system safely due to its custom design.
The bucket elevators have all necessary safety systems: speed control sensor, the sensor of support, braking device, prevented reverse elevator tape during the sudden stop. These devices help to identify troubles, turn it off to avoid the serious damages.
Mysilo is manufactured the bucket elevators with two types of drives: belt and motor-reducer. The advantage of the belt drive: smoothness, low price, easy maintenance. The motor-reducer drive will allow to increase the reliability of construction and reduce the size of bucket elevator head.
The bucket elevators are mounted on the metal support. Such construction simplifies the repair and maintenance.
After starting the motor, the drum of the bucket head begins to rotate. It is set into motion the belt with the buckets. The grain, entering into the receiving toe, is taken by the buckets and is lifted up. When the belt bends the drum of the head, the grain unloads from the buckets and moves from the elevator through the tube for the further processing steps.
