Kase offers Continuous Discharge Bucket Elevators as an efficient means of handling your material at a slower speed with less propulsion, reducing damage to your material. As the buckets within this type of elevator approach the discharge, the material is “poured out” onto the previous bucket which acts as a loading surface into the discharge spout.
This action is much gentler than a higher speed centrifugal bucket elevator and is beneficial when the product is light or fluffy and needs to avoid aeration. A Continuous Discharge elevator is also ideal for larger and heavier lumps and highly abrasive materials that centrifugally “throwing” into the hood and discharge chute would cause premature wear. Continuous Discharge Elevators can utilize fabricated steel buckets or nylon or poly buckets. These elevators are available in Belt or Chain.
