Saxlund Bucket Elevators


Saxlund bucket elevators are used in many industries for transporting a variety of bulk solid materials up a vertical distance. Our bucket elevators use the minimum power to perform this operation.

 

We supply two types that use either chains and chain wheels with steel buckets and chain attachments or with wire reinforced rubber belting running over special drums. In this case the steel buckets are bolted to the belt.

 

The elevator casing is of welded steel modular bolted construction with anti run back drive arrangement at the upper discharge end. Tensioning is achieved either by weights at the lower end or by screwed rods depending upon the application. Individual buckets lift material vertically from an inlet and centripetal action discharge the buckets at the top of the elevator into a discharge chute.

 

Description
Essentially Saxlund has two types of bucket elevator -
• Steel buckets fastened to chains running over chain wheels for heavy applications 
• Steel buckets fasteneded to wire reinforced rubber belting running over special pulley drums.

 

The bucket elevator requires material fed at a controlled rate into the inlet hopper (not flood feed). The elevator casing is of welded steel modular bolted construction and the drive has either a braked motor or anti-runback arrangement at the upper discharge end.  Tensioning is achieved either by weights at the lower end or by screwed rods depending upon the application.

 

Often used for difficult to handle bulk solids and in conjunction with our silo and bunker storage technology. They are mostly suited to wood chips and ash handling.
