Bucket Elevator Chain Needs Careful Maintenance

Add time: 8/16/2015

The chain of bucket elevator is the main driving force for lifting, so during the using process it needs to be carefully maintained, in order to make its service life longer. Fote Machinery bucket elevator is one of the commonly used equipment in the conveying operations. This machine has a wide applicable scope and is favored by massive customers.

After a long time running, bucket elevator may have some faults, such as chain fracture, chain hook fracture or hopper fall-off and so on. These faults will definitely affect the project progress, so the maintenance of the chains of bucket elevator is of particular importance.

On the one hand, we should check whether the loop chain is damaged or not, and replace the damaged one. On the other hand, clean out the dirt on the loop chain, to prevent excessive dirt from increasing the weight of the chain or keep the loop chain from getting stuck. The chain of bucket elevator is forged by high-quality alloy steel, which has strong tensile strength and wear resistance. But in the daily use we still need to pay extra attention to overhaul and maintenance. Fote Machinery bucket elevator has a large material conveying capacity and sturdy and durable chains.

The whole lifting process of bucket elevator is fully enclosed, in case that the lifted powdery materials escape and result in the phenomenon of dust flying. When installing, the bottom of the elevator adopts an automatic gravity tensioning device, which can keep a constant tension and avoid slipping or chain falling. Moreover, when the hopper is blocked, it can provide a certain buffering effect to effectively protect the moving parts. The other thing to note is that the material temperature shouldn’t exceed 250 ℃.
