CONTINUAL Bucket Elevators

 Continuous Bucket Elevators

Continuous bucket elevators are used to handle brittle or fragile materials because they minimize product damage. They are also used to handle light, fluffy materials where aeration of the product must be avoided. Continuous bucket elevators have buckets spaced continuously and operate at slower speeds. The continuous bucket placement allows the force of gravity to discharge their load onto the inverted front of the proceeding bucket. The bucket then guides that material into the discharge throat on the descending side of the elevator.

Because every bucket application is unique, Orthman offers a broad series of industrial elevator designs. Selection of the proper type of bucket elevator depends largely on the capacity requirements and the characteristics of the material to be handled.

CENTRIFUGAL VS. CONTINUOUS

This could be an area highlighting the differences between the centrifugal bucket elevators and the continuous bucket elevators. 

It might be really helpful to do an animated video of the difference with some narration or a live action shot of a centrifugal elevator on location.
