Bucket Elevators

With us it's a steep climb to the top

Belt and chain bucket elevators from AMF-Bruns

Belt and chain bucket elevators from AMF-Bruns stand for economical vertical conveying with maximum availability – even in continuous operation and under the most extreme conditions. This makes them a cost-effective, space-saving and product-protecting alternative to long, sloping or steeply inclined conveyor belts.

Right from the design phase, our engineers ensure that buckets, belts, chains and drives are precisely matched to your needs. Of course, this also applies to the individual adaptation to the technical and spatial conditions on site. In this way, our bucket elevators guarantee maximum efficiency and investment security right from the start.

Performance at the highest level

Belt bucket elevators from AMF-Bruns

Optimal for gentle, low-noise transport: The belt bucket elevators from AMF-Bruns are characterized by a high conveying capacity of up to 1,000 t/h. On vertical conveying distances of over 100 meters, they reliably move large quantities of material while maintaining the quality of your goods. On request, our bucket elevators can also be made dust-tight, pressure-shock-proof and gas-tight.

Thanks to their small footprint, our bucket elevators allow for optimal space utilization. Another advantage is the low maintenance requirement. Our chain bucket elevators are ideally suited for transporting hot goods up to 400 °C and are also designed for transporting heavy and abrasive materials.

Your options:

  • Design in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1935/2004 – food contact materials
  • EX-protected design according to Directive 2014/34/EU
  • With maintenance platforms
  • Material combinations adapted to the field of application (e.g. heat- or pH-resistant as well as wear-resistant)
  • Movable scoops to reduce material deposits
  • Cleaning flaps and inspection openings
  • Different seal variants
  • Different belt variants (e.g. steel cable belts, heat- and cold-resistant belts)
