Capacity Expansion by Triple Bucket Configuration

AUMUND Chain Bucket Elevator Type BW-T

(PresseBox) ( Rheinberg, )
For a couple of years AUMUND offers double chain bucket elevators for installations needing high transport capacities. However, the market demands even higher capacities. Therefore, AUMUND engineers and technicians developed the triple chain bucket elevator AUMUND Type BW-T.

With this elevator three bucket strands are affixed to a common drive shaft running on four plummer block bearings. Compared with three individual bucket elevators, maintenance and foot print is significantly lower. An essential precondition for the construction of a triple bucket elevator was the availability of a chain with a breaking load of 2450 kN that masters lift heights of up to 90 metres. Furthermore new developed flow dividers guarantees simultaneous filling of all three parallel bucket strands. In close cooperation with the Technical University of Magdeburg, AUMUND developed a gravimetrically working chute that fills the buckets from three parallel outlets.

Chain bucket elevators especially display their advantages in environments with high temperatures and when transporting sticky bulk materials tending to build up. The stand of the technology up to date limited its state of usability to heights up to 70 metres and a mass flow of 2,500 tons per hour. With the triple bucket elevator AUMUND Type BW-T you can work now in operating ranges up to 90 metres height and up to a mass flow of 4,000 tons per hour.
