Bucket Elevators

Conveyor and Elevator bucket elevators offer a simple, effective method of transporting a whole variety of bulk materials from one production process to another and can be configured to deliver your product exactly where it is needed. Reducing the need for labour and manual handling, our bucket elevators offer a reliable, cost effective materials handling solution, increasing productivity and efficiency. It is important to select the correct design of elevator, which is determined by the type of application and the material being handled. We offer belt and bucket or chain and bucket designs, and each elevator is manufactured to suit our customers exact requirements. From initial enquiry through to despatch, we work together with our customers to ensure the smooth running of their project from start to finish. Our designs include:

Centrifugal Discharge Elevators (suitable for free-flowing materials)
Continuous Discharge Elevators (typically suited to sluggish, poor-flowing materials)
Positive Discharge Elevators (for materials that require gentle handling)

Custom-made Solutions

We offer a complete design service, from initial concept through to manufacture and delivery of our tailor-made solutions working closely with our customers during each stage of the project. Our team of experienced mechanical engineers are available to conduct the initial survey, giving help and advice and ensuring a quick response to your enquiry with a detailed quotation for your unique bulk materials handling requirements. Through attention to detail and accuracy in design and construction, coupled with our vast knowledge and expertise in the manufacture of materials handling equipment means our customers receive the correct equipment with optimum efficiency no matter what the material.

Specialist Hardfacing Services

For applications that require the transportation of harsh, abrasive products, heavy duty equipment is required. Conveyor and Elevator have extensive experience in the design and manufacture of such equipment and offer specialist hardfacing, a metalworking process where a much tougher layer (or layers) of material is welded to a base metal. Hardfacing can be applied to components during production or it can be used to restore worn-down components, increasing wear resistance and prolonging life expectancy.

Aftersales Spares and Repairs Service

When your equipment starts to underperform, it becomes less efficient, causing a decrease in production and many customers face the anguish of unexpected costs and prolonged periods of down-time. All too often, customers purchase new machines unnecessarily, when their existing machine may still have a good deal of life left in it, this needless outlay however, could be avoided.

Conveyor and Elevators continuous commitment to high standards of build quality, reliability and service is complimented by our team of design engineers who are experts in upgrading and refurbishing existing bulk materials handling systems. We offer a complete aftersales repairs service, helping many customers avoid these extra costs. We offer fast turnaround times, ensuring down-time is kept to a minimum, so you can be safe in the knowledge that your production line will return to fill operation as soon as possible.

Alternatively, we can supply a comprehensive range of custom-made screw conveyor and bucket elevator parts and components to aid your own maintenance requirements, reducing down-time and saving these unnecessary costs. Did you know? Not only do we supply spare parts for our own machines, but we manufacture custom-made components for machines supplied by other manufacturers and can reproduce almost any design.
