Special Application for Bucket Elevator

This week we are shipping a bucket elevator with nine discharge points for a special application.

Ryson Bucket ElevatorThe customer needed to elevate light-weight cellulose material 23 feet to feed nine hoppers in a line. While the overall weight per hour of the light-weight cellulose material (2500 lb/hr) may seem easy to do, the fact that the bulk density is less than 3 lb/ft3 means that the volume is 1000 ft3/hr.

The volume requirements called for the Ryson Z-600-1-9 unit.   The first eight discharge locations are pneumatically operated and selectively controlled. The last tipping ramp stays in a fixed position to assure that all buckets are emptied.

bucket-elevator-drawingThe Ryson Bucket Elevators combine vertical and horizontal transportation of bulk material in one integral unit. Their modular design and rugged construction make them suitable for a wide variety of applications. Available in powder coated carbon steel, stainless steel or wash-down versions.
