Pivot Bucket Chain Conveyors

A hybrid of a flight conveyor and a bucket elevator created the Pivot Bucket Conveyor.

Steel or Plastic buckets are pivoted at close pitch between two strands of chain and moved over a horizontal, vertical and horizontal path.

As the buckets are freely "pivoted" they remain in a horizontal position during the entire loop movement and are caused to tilt over and deliver the product at specific locations, by an adjustable "cam".

Specifically useful for single feed with multiple discharge application requirements and also where the product is delicate and needs to be protected from contamination during transportation.

The chains are of side bar link type custom built to provide ease of maintenance as well as economical life.
