Continuous Discharge Bucket Elevators

The Continuous Discharge Bucket Elevators are often used to handle sluggish, aerated materials having a lumpy texture. These elevators are designed in such a manner that the buckets are continuously spaced (traveling at speed slower than the centrifugal type), so that, the fronts and extended sides form a chute as they pass around the head terminal , gravity causes the material to gently flow out of the buckets and down the chute formed by the preceding.
