Your solution to capacity optimisation through compact designs.
The Robson Bucket Elevator is a precise solution to the vertical movement of dry and free flowing bulk materials. The Bucket Elevator is constructed using stainless steel or mild steel buckets attached to a belt or chain. Encased in a steel enclosure the elevated material is protected from the atmosphere, giving the Bucket Elevator the ability to be used internally or externally of buildings.
With each bespoke application, the Robson Bucket Elevator is designed to suit the need of the customer's environment and application.
Robson has designed and built Bucket Elevators for several industries: Sugar, Grain, Cement, Lime.
The Bucket Elevator is protected via an array of sensors to detect:
Underspeed.Belt Alignment.Drive Overload.
Plus with the options of full explosion suppression or blast panels or combinations of both this gives the Bucket Elevator the versatility and protection to be used in any environment.
The food industry is one of the main customers for the Bucket Elevator, with options including full stainless steel construction, food safe belts, foreign object detectors, metal detectors, samplers and reject chutes. Robson can offer a suitable Bucket Elevator solution to your conveying needs.
Bucket Elevators are available ATEX rated for use in explosive atmospheres and flammable dusts.
ATEX Classification zones exist for explosive hazards like dust and fibres: -
• Zone 20 - indicates areas where explosive atmospheres containing a cloud of combustible dust will occur frequently or for extended periods.
• Zone 21 - indicates areas where explosive atmospheres containing a cloud of combustible dust will occur sometimes, but not extensively.
• Zone 22 - indicates areas where explosive atmospheres containing a cloud of combustible dust will occur infrequently or for short durations.
