The Bucket Elevator is mainly used for vertical (elevation) conveying, although some manufacturers are also proposing designs allowing covering horizontal sections. It is a piece of material handling equipment that is designed to boost production speeds by transporting materials from one place to another. The elevator consists of several buckets mounted onto either a chain or belt loop which is fitted onto two pulleys. A drive assembly at the head pulley causes the pulleys to rotate which moves the buckets up one side, over the head pulley, and down the other side. Bucket Elevator is available in various types.
