Because we’ve worked with a variety of manufacturers in a multitude of industries, we offer several different design features on our bucket elevators. From single discharge bucket conveyors to multiple discharge bucket conveyors and indexing bucket conveyors, our specialists can assist you in selecting the right bucket elevators for your manufacturing needs.
We’ve been providing quality bucket elevators and bucket conveyors for more than 55 years across four generations of Fraziers. We started by developing the WHIZ-PACKER, a patented four-pocket volumetric filler, used to measure and package nuts. Decades later, we’re still at it, looking to perfect and enhance manufacturing whenever and wherever we can. Give us a call today to see how we can assist you.
Multiple discharge bucket conveyors can convey and elevate product to many locations, for example, feeding a number of bagging or packaging machines. Multiple infeed points can be utilized in this bucket conveyor design as well, creating a cost effective alternative to multiple conveying machines. Model CBT, Model CB, CBT-U configurations can be used in the multiple discharge design.
Indexing bucket conveyors are unique in design and function. Indexing bucket conveyors are timed to accept a certain amount of product in each bucket, and then discharge product in a packaging machine. For example, accepting a set of game pieces that are to be packaged and included in each end users’ board game (red piece, yellow piece, green piece, and blue piece, then one dice) and elevating them into a packaging machine, discharging the pieces every 1.5 seconds – which is based on the time needed by the feeding device and the packaging machine. Model C configurations are used in the indexing design. High Speed and Washdown versions are available.
