Pro Tips – Belt Speed Pt. 2 – How Fast is Too Fast

We hear it all the time: “I’m not getting capacity, but I’m running my buckets as fast as I can.”

Bo Fisher and Dean Wedekind with Maxi-Lift are back in our latest Pro Tips video all about the world of bucket elevators and material conveyance. Today they continue their conversation on bucket elevator speed and why running an elevator too fast can create a host of problems. They cover:

  • Why faster elevators can lose capacity
  • Tip speed and how going too fast damages grain and other materials
  • The difference that today’s larger buckets make on speed calculations
