The polyamide nylon buckets are fitted with sealed bearings ensuring smooth and easy tipping. They are located between two toothed rubber block chains with internal steel cables to provide high tensile strength. The rubber chains are corrosion resistant and require no lubrication.
The width of the fill point is determined by the bucket width, but any length of infeed can be accommodated.
NERAK pendulum elevators can have any number of discharge points from the underside of the top horizontal section.
The discharge points are operated by either a pneumatically or electromagnetically actuated cam which engages with a web moulded into the bucket.
This provides a bucket tip of up to 180°, ensuring complete product discharge. The different bucket sizes cover a range up to 120 cbm/h.
