Bucket Elevators Literature

Centrifugal & Continuous Bucket Elevators

Our bucket elevator line centers around models that range in capacity from 300 to 25,000 cu ft./hour, typically single-trunk design, with heights of approximately 100 feet or less. We have designed and manufactured elevators to much greater heights and capacities and do so on a case by case basis. SCC elevators, whether centrifugal or continuous design, are built with meticulous attention to detail and your job-specific requirements. SCC’s Huck® bolted casing sections allow for easy assembly, consistent structural connection, and time saving erection. The result is a superior elevator housing. SCC’s engineering expertise and design capabilities enable us to manufacture Super Capacity and Mill Duty Elevators. Work with your regional SCC Representative or local Distributor to review and communicate your specific details to our industry leading team of application engineers.

Centrifugal Bucket Elevators 

Available in both Belt and Chain designs, the Centrifugal Bucket Elevator provides an economical, efficient and reliable means of elevating a wide variety of dry, free-flowing materials. Bucket spacing is further apart and the buckets travel at higher speeds than the Continuous-style.

Continuous Bucket Elevators

Available in both Belt and Chain designs, the Continuous Bucket Elevator has bucket spacing much closer than the Centrifugal design. This model is recommended for handling sluggish, aerated and friable material and operates at slower speeds than the Centrifugal-style.
