What is vertical bucket elevator?

Vertical bucket elevators are a type of conveyor system used to elevate bulk materials vertically. They consist of a series of buckets attached to a chain or belt that moves in a continuous loop, allowing materials to be lifted from one level to another. Vertical bucket elevators are commonly used in industries such as agriculture, mining, construction, and manufacturing for handling materials like grains, fertilizers, aggregates, and powders.

Vertical bucket elevators can convey materials vertically over considerable heights, saving space and allowing efficient material flow in facilities with limited floor space. The design of the barrel minimizes spillage and damage of materials during transportation, ensuring product integrity and quality. Vertical bucket elevators can be customized to meet specific requirements, including different capacities, heights and discharge options.

What is the Purpose of Vertical Bucket Elevator?

A vertical bucket elevator is a machine designed to continuously transport loose bulk materials upwards. Imagine a series of scoops on a rotating belt that carry materials from the bottom to the top of the elevator. Here's a breakdown of its purpose:

1.Elevates bulk materials: As the name suggests, the main purpose is to lift loose materials like grain, sand, or fertilizer vertically.

2.Handles various materials: They are versatile and can handle a wide range of materials, from light and flowy powders to heavier and chunky pieces.

3.Used in many industries: Due to their functionality, they are widely used in agriculture, food processing, chemicals, construction, and manufacturing.

What types of Vertical Bucket Elevators are there?

There are many types of vertical bucket elevators. The three common types of vertical bucket elevators include: Belt Type Bucket Elevator, Chain Bucket Elevator and Z Type Bucket Elevator.

Belt Type Bucket Elevator

Belt Type Bucket Elevator

It uses belts as a device for conveying and lifting bulk materials, and is suitable for various bulk materials, including grains, seeds, fertilizers, minerals, aggregates, powders and other free-flowing or non-free-flowing materials.

Chain Bucket Elevator

Chain Bucket Elevator

The chain is used as the driving mechanism to lift and transport bulk materials vertically or tiltedly. Ideal for heavy-duty industrial applications involving the handling of strong and abrasive materials such as ores, minerals, aggregates and other coarse-grained materials.

Lifting height: ≤20m

Lifting capacity: 5.4-72m³/h

Z Type Bucket Elevator

Z Type Bucket Elevator

Used to convey bulk materials in a Z-shaped path, suitable for various bulk materials, including grains, seeds, potato chips, snacks and other fragile and fragile materials.

Discharge height: 1.5-12m

Feeding length:≤1.3m

Where are vertical bucket elevators used?

The vertical bucket elevator is suitable for lifting from a low place to a high place. After the supply material is put into the hopper through the vibrating table, the machine runs automatically and continuously to convey the product upward. Some common applications include:

1. Agriculture: Used to transport grain, seeds and other bulk materials between different stages of the production process.

2. Mining industry: It is used in the mining industry to transport coal, ore, minerals and other materials from underground mines to the surface.

3. Food processing: Used in food processing facilities to transport grain, flour, sugar and other food products between different stages of the production process.

4. Chemical processing: used in the chemical processing industry to transport materials such as fertilizers, plastics and other chemicals between different stages of the production process.

5. Construction: used in the construction industry to transport materials such as cement, sand and gravel between different levels of the construction site.

6. Power plants: used in power plants to transport coal, biomass and other materials from storage bins to boilers as fuel.

How does a vertical bucket elevator work?

Vertical bucket elevator is mainly composed of hopper, traction belt (or chain), driving device casing and inlet and discharge ports. When working, the conveyed material is evenly fed from the feeding port. Driven by the driving roller, the hopper fixed on the conveyor belt scrapes the material and then rises together with the conveyor belt. When it rises to the top of the top driving roller, the hopper starts. Turn over, under the action of centrifugal force or gravity, the material is discharged from the discharge port and sent to the next process.

What are the benefits of a vertical bucket elevator?

efficient material handling

Designed for the vertical transport of materials, making it an efficient way of moving bulk materials between different levels of the production line.

High capacity

Can handle bulky material over long distances, making it a suitable choice for high-volume applications with vertical heights of up to 40 meters or more.

Reduce product damage

Designed to minimize product damage during shipping, which helps maintain the quality of the material being shipped.

Low maintenance

Require less maintenance than other types of material handling equipment because they have fewer moving parts and are simpler in design.


Can be equipped with a variety of safety features including blast doors, fire suppression systems and monitoring systems to prevent overloading or other hazardous situations.


Can be customized to meet the specific needs of a production line, including bucket size and capacity, elevator speed, and type of material being conveyed.

What is the difference between vertical bucket conveyor and vertical bucket elevator?

Different conveying directions: Vertical bucket conveyors are mainly used for long-distance conveying in horizontal and inclined directions, vertical bucket elevators are specially used for conveying in vertical directions, lifting materials from below to above.

Different applications: Vertical bucket conveyors are suitable for situations where materials need to be transported in a horizontal or inclined direction, such as factory production lines; vertical bucket elevators are often used in situations where materials need to be lifted vertically, such as warehousing facilities.

Run differently: the bucket of a vertical bucket conveyor runs on a horizontal or inclined conveyor line, transporting materials from one location to another; the bucket of a vertical bucket elevator runs in the vertical direction, lifting materials from below Go to the top to achieve the vertical lifting function.

Structure of Vertical Bucket Elevator

The main components of vertical bucket elevator are hopper and traction parts. The hopper is the material-holding component of the hoist. According to the nature of the conveyed material and the structural characteristics of the hoist, the hopper can be divided into three different forms, namely deep hopper with cylindrical bottom, shallow hopper and pointed hopper.

The traction parts of the bucket elevator can be two kinds of tapes and chains. The tapes are the same as those of the belt conveyor. The hopper is fixed on the traction belt with special head screws and elastic gaskets, and the bandwidth is 35~40mm larger than the width of the hopper.

1.Underhead Inspection Platform with Railings

2.ladder with guardrail

3.Stainless steel bucket and bolts

4.Loading hopper with safety grill and lid

5.Lightweight Loading Screw Conveyors for Difficult-Flowing Products

6.for belt slipping
