Elevator and Conveyor Buckets Product Line
We manufacture elevator and conveyor buckets from three materials. Polyethylene suits buckets for general service. Urethane buckets work well for pelletized feeds and other high-abrasion applications. Nylon buckets work best for rough service applications. All our buckets feature thick walls and straight sides. We manufacture buckets in many sizes. Low front buckets are designed to handle wet or finely pulverized materials. Medium front buckets can handle a wide variety of materials. High front buckets have an increased capacity, and suit products that require gentle handling. High front buckets with overlapping sides prevent leakage between buckets. Super capacity buckets are designed to handle heavy materials.
Elevator and Conveyor Buckets Industrial Applications
We serve customers working in a wide variety of industries, including the agricultural, construction, and manufacturing market sectors.
Elevator and Conveyor Buckets Manufacturing Process
Our 92,500 sq. ft. manufacturing facility is large enough to include an in-house injection-molding centre. We have ten injection molding machines ranging from a 150-ton press to a large 1,000-ton press. Because all our manufacturing is done on site, we can better control quality and minimize costs. We use the highest quality materials when manufacturing our products, including high-density linear polyethylene, impact-modified nylon, and thermoplastic urethane. We continue to research new technologies so that we can best serve all customers.
