Conveying Technology

Chain Bucket Elevators:


KoWey supplies bucket elevators with central chain for low to medium conveying capacities and centre distances. All elevators provide a close bucket pitch. Thus the bulk material is feed directly to the buckets and scooping of bulk material from the elevator boot is avoided to a maximum extend. The discharge of bulk material at the elevator head is affected by means of centrifugal force.

A friction drive between the segmented drive ring and the central chain provides the torque transmission and allows velocities of 1,15 to 1,40 meter per second.

lifting heights up to 50 m
conveying capacities up to 200 m³/h
for coarse and hot bulk materials
bush link chain serves as central chain
