One of the most efficient ways to elevate bulk materials vertically is with a bucket elevator. A Bucket Elevator consists of a series of buckets attached to a belt or chain with pulleys or sprockets located at the top and bottom of the unit. The buckets are located in a casing or housing to contain the material. Bulk materials are loaded into each bucket as the bucket moves past an inlet point. KWS designs and manufactures a wide variety of bucket elevators based on the characteristics of the bulk material and the process requirements.
PRIME designs and manufactures Bucket Elevators to meet the needs of many industries, such as Chemical, Minerals Processing, Food, Wood Products and Waste water Treatment.

Deep Buckets connected to single strand Chain in vertical orientation driven by a Top Sprocket bigger than Sectioning Sprocket for Positive Discharge of materials from the Buckets.
Positive Discharge Elevators are similar to the centrifugal discharge type, except that buckets are snubbed back under head sprockets to gain a more complete discharge at a slower chain speed. The elevators usually handle light aerated, dusty and sticky materials that won’t discharge cleanly from a centrifugal discharge elevator.
