4 key factors decide the function of bucket elevator
Bucket elevator can be installed singly or in a system, in order to meet the needs of the site and materials forms. The main parameter of the bucket elevator is according to the handling system, loading and unloading location conditions, production process and the characteristics of transported material,main aspects are as follows:
1. Conveying capacity: it means the amount per hour, usually calculated in weight or volume.
2. Conveying speed: improving the speed can increase the elevating capacity. Especially when use the belt bucket elevator for long distance transporting,it needs to improve the conveying speed, but if use chain bucket elevator you should not, in case of enlarging the burden.
3. Pats dimension: the dimension of parts include belt width, plate width, bucket volume, channel diameters and so on, these dimensions will have an impact on the conveying capacity.
4. Conveying distance: the total distance will have an impact on the total resistance and power.
