Bucket Elevators

The bucket-elevator is designed for vertically handling a variety of dry, free flowing bulk materials efficiently and with high capacities. Designed by FEEDTECH Machinery, Bucket Elevators are one of the best options with their reliable construction and operation in severe conditions.

to be used?

  • It is the most productive solution to vertically transport of a wide range of granule, pulpy and bulky materials such as grain, animal feed, pellets, and oilseed, with a high throughput of up to 550 m3 per hour. The elevator belts are pre-stressed with modular design which reduces installation time by up to 80%.
  • Bucket elevator transports these stocks vertically via buckets that are placed with a fixed space interval.
  • The belt operates on top (head) and bottom (foot) pulleys.
  • The top pulley is driven by electric motor, whereas the bottom pulley operates as a turn buckle. Material type of the buckets, shape, spaces, belt speed and pulleys vary depending on the site, elevator efficiency is crucial, as well.


The buckets are carried by a belt all contained on standard elevator legs. The belt-elevator is exceedingly suitable as a high capacity bucket-elevator. The speed varies according to the kind of product being transported, from 1,5 to 3,5 meter/sec.

Primarily animal feed, pet food, plastic, chemical industries, Bucket Elevators can be used in many fields. Including powder and granule formed products, it can lift barley, wheat, maize, milk powder, coffee, cocoa, tea, soy, packaged or compressed products. Accurate elevating system for raw materials and products that are used in feed factories.
