Bucket Conveyors

The B&W Loibl bucket conveyor is used for vertical and, in certain cases, slightly sloped continuous transport for a variety of bulk materials. It is particularly suitable for transporting very bulky materials with high flow volume at considerable transport height.
Material characteristics, the specific application and transport capacity, will determine the drive mechanism, the buckets and the distance between them in their design. 

B&W Loibl delivers belt bucket conveyors with EP belts and steel cable belts as well as chain bucket conveyors with single- or multi-line chains, normal and one-rope chain bucket conveyors, and as central chain bucket conveyors. The outlet, located at the end of the bottom station, is equipped with a clamping device. Material emptying occurs at the upper drive head station and, depending on the material’s characteristics and transport capacity, emptying occurs either by gravity or centrifugal force.

B&W Loibl bucket conveyors have large maintenance flaps in the vertical shaft and include all the necessary monitoring and control equipment for safe operation.
