TIGER-TUFF

  • Thicker Corners
  • Thicker Walls, Heavy Front Lip for Digging
  • Increases Elevator Capacity
  • Cleaner Discharge
  • High Impact / Abrasion Resistant
  • Lowers Elevator Maintenance
  • Decreases Elevator Down-Time
  • Extends Bucket Life
  • Non-Corrosive, Non-Sparking

TIGER-TUFF LOW PROFILE OPTION

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.


ENGINEERED FOR ULTIMATE RELIABILITY

The thickest front lip and corners give longest bucket life.

Digger elevator buckets aid in breaking up material in the boot section of a bucket elevator. Diggers extend 1/4″ further than plastic elevator buckets. Weights and dimensions will vary. Tolerance is a 1/4″ on all bucket dimensions except bolt hole diameter which is 1/16″. Capacity is based off of plastic elevator buckets of similar style. Buckets available in carbon or stainless steel. Additional AR wear lips, back plates and venting available upon request. Buckets available in other gauges including 14GA, 12GA, 10GA, 7GA, 1/4″ thick.

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 Tiger-Tuff is the original maximum duty elevator bucket, designed and engineered to increase bucket life and reduce breakage. This will reduce down time and lower maintenance costs. The Tiger-Tuff bucket has the thickest lip, back wall and corners to extend the life of the bucket. Standard spacing is nominal projection + 2″, minimum spacing is nominal projection plus 1”. The most common applications include grain, fertilizers, pellets, corn, wheat, soybeans and other agricultural and light industrial applications. This is the best bucket for high volume applications. The belt width for a single row of buckets is actual bucket width plus 2″.

Features & Benefits

  • Thicker Corners
  • Thicker Walls, Heavy Front Lip for Digging
  • Increases Elevator Capacity
  • Cleaner Discharge
  • High Impact / Abrasion Resistant
  • Lowers Elevator Maintenance
  • Decreases Elevator Down-Time
  • Extends Bucket Life
  • Non-Corrosive, Non-Sparking

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.

THICKER. TOUGHER. LASTS LONGER.
