Their inherent simplicity makes them a popular choice for bulk material handling and processing applications all over the world. They can elevate a variety of bulk materials from light to heavy and from fine to large lumps
In general most free flowing materials and many materials with poor flow characteristics can be successfully handled with a bucket elevator. The rate at which material can be elevated depends on many factors in addition to the obvious effects of bucket design, capacity and speed. In particular attention has to be paid to material charge and discharge characteristics.
