TTP - Deep Bucket Conveyors

Description:Generally used for conveying any bulk material, even at high temperatures, at an inclination exceeding 35°. An ideal solution when the vertical extension of the conveyor must be limited.These metal pan conveyors comprise a series of buckets capable of conveying fine-grained material without any spills.Two special Link chains with fixed bushings and long pins connecting the two chains are bolted to the sides of the various buckets and link the latter so as to form a continuous jointed line, thanks to the chain pins. The ends of each long pin mount a pair of rollers with guiding edge and rolling-element bearings: the former roll on appropriate tracks and support the series of buckets both on the upper driving run and on the lower return run.The vertical support structure comprises trestles (two small columns with crossbeams), while the horizontal support comprises the track-holder beams connecting the trestles which are spaced out at regular intervals.The drive station in the discharge zone includes a drive unit that imparts movement to the buckets, while the return station on the opposite end includes the chain take-up station.
Functional specifications:
  • Recommended speed: < 0.30 m/s.
  • One or more curves can be included on the vertical plane (recommended radius > 10 m).
  • Material is hauled on the upper run.
  • Multiple material take-up points can be included along the conveyor but only a single discharge end, under the drive station.
