As one kind of transportation equipment in oil milling plant, bucket elevators are used for vertical lifting of powder and particle materials. Bucket elevator has many features like large hoisting height, stable lifting performance, small space occupation, good sealing and long service time. The hoisting height is adjustable according to customers’ requirements (usually 7 to 10 meters). In general, bucket elevator is the most widely used vertical conveying machine in edible oil factory and vegetable oil plant.
From oil materials to finished products, different types of bucket elevators are needed to send semi-finished products to the flowing process according to the technological requirements of oil processing in a complete edible oil plant. To ensure continuous and automation production, it is important to choose the right conveying equipment, for high quality bucket elevator can reduce labor intensity, improve production efficiency and the quality of oil products.

TDTG Bucket Elevator in Edible Oil Processing Plant
The common conveying machines in oil plant includes bucket elevator, scraper conveyor, pneumatic conveying equipment, and belt conveyor (belt conveyor is mainly suitable for conveying raw materials and finished goods). TDTG is the most common used bucket elevator in edible oil processing plant.
Main Structure of Bucket Elevator for Oilseed Materials
Bucket elevator mainly consists of traction belt, tensioning device, loading and unloading device and other parts.
There are a number of small steel buckets on the traction institutions (belt or chain). By the dragging of traction institutions, the bucket elevator can lift the raw materials continuously. Driving by a rotating drum the traction part keeps moving vertically, and the small bucket filled in the lower loading place, then will be lifted upwards. When reached the top, across the upper drum and turn out, the materials will be discharged under the effect of gravity and centrifugal force, so as to achieve the purpose of conveying.
