DURA-BUKET LOW PROFILE OPTION

The LP or Low Profile Dura-Buket is a modification to the original plastic elevator bucket, the SS. It is designed at a 45-degree discharge angle and can be spaced closer on a belt giving a clean superior discharge. The most common applications include grain, wheat, corn, flour, sugar and other agricultural applications. This bucket has a reduced height modification for closer vertical spacing on the belt. The low profile system allows more buckets per foot of elevator belt. When upgrading to Low Profile buckets horsepower requirements must be evaluated due to increased capacity.

Venting an elevator bucket aids in bucket fill and discharge with light, fluffy materials.

Lightweight, fluffy materials, those that are extremely dense or flow poorly can be difficult to handle in bucket elevators at high speeds. Because these materials tend to trap air when being handled by an elevator bucket, it is necessary to provide air relief to assist in their filling and discharge. Materials in this category might be various flours, meals, feed mash or screenings. As these materials enter the bucket, air is released through a series of vent holes in the bottom of the bucket allowing for a more complete fill. These vent holes also allow air to re-enter the bucket, which facilitates full release of product into the discharge.

Generally hole diameter is equal to bolt holes drilled for attachment. In certain cases, larger diameter holes may be necessary.

When elevating powdery materials such as cement in the Tiger-Tuff, a minimum of two rows of 3/8″ diameter vent holes are recommended to help insure that the material will discharge cleanly.

#1 Vent
Same holes in body as bolt mounting holes.

#2 Vent
One row of holes on 1-1/8″centers.

#3 Vent
Two rows of holes on 1-1/8″centers.

#4 Vent
Same as #3, plus three holes in each end cap.

Custom Vent
Vented as required.

The SS or Super Strength Dura-Buket is the original plastic elevator bucket. The Super Strength elevator bucket has been running for over 50 years. It is designed at a 45-degree discharge angle, and can be spaced closer on a belt giving a clean superior discharge. This bucket is lightweight and tapered for easy shipping and storage. Standard Spacing is nominal projection + 1″. The most common applications include grain, wheat, corn, flour, sugar, and other agricultural applications. The SS is the most versatile designed bucket that performs well in a broad range of speeds and applications.

Features & Benefits

  • Lightweight
  • Shape Memory
  • Cleaner Discharge
  • Tapered End Cap Design
  • Non-Corrosive, Non-Sparking
  • Resists Hang-Ups

Other Considerations

Drilling: Elevator buckets are manufactured without a drill pattern. Special drilling or punching can be accommodated upon customer request.

Venting: Available as needed. See venting options in this catalog.

Digger Buckets: Use slightly larger metal digger elevator buckets to help loosen material in the elevator boot section that has set up or hardened, thereby reducing abrasion on the plastic buckets. Call for details on Metal Digger elevator bucket options.

Spacing: See elevator bucket spacing details in the size chart (depending on materials and speeds, smaller and larger spacing may be used).

Installation: Use a #1 standard elevator bolt or Sabre-Tooth elevator bolt for installation. Designed to be used with fender or flat and lock washers and hex or locking nuts. If buckets are being installed on chain, use hex head bolts, nuts and washers.

FDA: Both the urethane and polyethylene are designed to FDA specifications for direct contact with food products.

THE NAME SPEAKS FOR ITSELF

Durable Bucket: After 1/2 a century not much remains to be said.
