The DI-MAX AA style ductile iron elevator buckets are engineered to exceed the performance requirements of any industrial application. These buckets are designed with thicker walls and a reinforced front lip to increase bucket life in tough industrial environments. Ductile iron is far superior to malleable iron in both impact and abrasion resistance. Replacing malleable iron with DI-MAX ductile iron elevator buckets will result in longer bucket life and more efficient operation.

Features

  • Mill duty, thick walls with reinforced back and corners
  • Extremely high impact and abrasion resistance
  • Applications up to 600 degrees
  • Non-corrosive, non-sparking
  • Designed to handle sand, glass cullet, stone, shot blast, rock, concrete and other abrasive products
  • DI-MAX has a Brinell hardness of 297

Benefits

  • Long wearing digging edges
  • Stronger than steel of the same gauge
  • Smooth surface to ensure proper filling
  • Strong impact and abrasion resistance for long life

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.

Standard hole diameter is equal to the size of the bolt mounting holes in vent pattern #1, all other vent patterns will have 11/32” diameter holes unless otherwise requested by customer.

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.
