Position the frame in the installation site, calibrate the base surface of the frame body as the reference level, install the riser section by section from bottom to top according to the process requirements, and calibrate the riser section by section with plumb vertical.

Questions You May Ask About Our Bucket Elevator

Compared with the traditional bucket elevator, Our machine is a high efficiency, hopper forms should be preferred.

We have four types of bucket elevator: shallow bucket, arc bottom bucket, medium-deep bucket, deep bucket.

It adopts a belt and hopper elevator to transport materials. Suitable for conveying powdery, granular, small abrasive, or non-abrasive materials.

Our elevator is widely used in grain, coal, fly ash, cement, crushed ore, quartz sand, carbon, and other industries.

What is a Bucket Elevator Working principle?

It composed of the operating part (hopper and traction tape), the upper section with the driving drum, the lower section with the tension drum, the middle casing, the driving device, the reverse braking device, and so on of the chain bucket elevator parts.

Suitable for upward transportation of loose < 1.5t/m powder, granular and small non-abrasive and semi-abrasive loose materials, such as coal, sand, coke, cement, ore, etc.

The driving device of our machine has two kinds of reducer. Compact structure, lightweight, reliable reverse. The reducer has low noise, smooth operation to eliminate mounting stress.

The Ultimate FAQ Guide to Bucket Elevator

how do you calculate the volume of a bucket elevator?

This is very simple, you only need to remember the bucket elevator lift calculation formula:

Q = 3.6 V, a/t. bits, gamma (t/h)

Where: V — chain (belt) speed (m/s)

A — bucket capacity (L)

T — bucket spacing (m)

ψ — the filling coefficient (see Table 6), which decreases with the increase of velocity and with the material pile

The product Angle increases as it increases

γ — bulk density of material (t/m3)

Screw conveyor approximate calculation formula:

Throughput Q = 47 D2 nt Φ PC (t/h)

Type: D conveyor diameter m, n – – pitch screw shaft speed r/min, t m, Φ – material filling coefficient, material density p – t/m3, c – conveyor Angle coefficient

Shaft power P0= [Q (Ω 0L+H) /367] +DL/20

In the formula, Q — conveying capacity, Ω 0 — material resistance number (1.2-4), L — conveying length m, D — conveyor diameter m, H — vertical height m in the inclined arrangement

how is power calculate in a bucket elevator?

Because the hoist for round-trip operation, should first find out the change of the required load time in a cycle, and then find out the square root value. The load is calculated based on the payload applied to the wire rope. Payload Qn is expressed by the following formula:


Q2=Q+W (D-T1V) +F+ MA

Q3 is equal to Q+W (D- T1V) +F

Q4 is equal to q-w (d-t3v) +F

Q5=Q-W (D-T3V) + F-MR


In the above formula, Q represents unfairness and coincidence, and the unit is KGF;

W denotes the weight of steel wire rope per meter in KGF;

D is the depth in m;

F denotes additional friction load, in KGF;

M represents the total mass of the movable part in kg;

A is acceleration in m/s2;

T1 is the acceleration time in s;

V is the velocity in meters per second;

T3 denotes deceleration time in s;

R is the deceleration, and the units are m/s2.

The power P required to lift the equivalent load QE at the speed of V can be calculated by the following formula:

P = KfWev/eta (6120)

In the above formula, K represents the load coefficient, usually 1.1-1.2;

F represents the ventilation coefficient. When forced air cooling occurs, F =1, self-ventilated asynchronous motor F =[TZ /0.5(T1 + T3)+ T2 + 025T4], self-ventilated DC motor F =[T2/0.75 (T1 + T3)+ T2 + 0.5T4];

η represents the mechanical efficiency of the reducer, taking 0.9-0.96 in the first stage and 0.8-0.9 in the second stage.

Through the above formula we can calculate the motor output power P, and then by choosing the maximum torque, make it greater than the torque required under the maximum load of acceleration.

Through the above content, we can calculate the theoretical power required by the elevator, according to the theoretical power, we can choose the appropriate motor, here to remind you, in the process of the elevator machine type selection, the power of the motor is greater than its theoretical power.
