The knowledge that manufacturers need to know before buying a hoist
Specific gravity of materials: Generally, bucket elevator parameters are designed and calculated for materials with a bulk specific gravity below 1.6. Too much material specific gravity requires calculation of traction and tensile strength of the transmission part. The transport volume per unit time. The physical properties of the material: whether the material has adsorption or viscosity, and whether it contains water. The form of the material: whether the material is powdery, granular or small.
As a commonly used lifting equipment, the selection of bucket elevator is restricted by many factors. Choosing the wrong model will bring endless trouble to the user. Generally speaking, the shape of the material directly determines the discharging method of the material. The common rule is that the powder material is discharged by centrifugal ejection, the bulk material is discharged by gravity, and the different discharging method determines the hopper form used by the bucket elevator. The centrifugal projectile discharge mostly uses shallow buckets and arc buckets, while gravity discharge needs to use deep buckets.
The type of hopper used by the bucket elevator is different, the material conveying volume lifted per unit time is different. The final conveying capacity of the bucket elevator is a comprehensive parameter that depends on the hopper form, bucket speed, material specific gravity, material properties, and the number of hoppers. The selection process is as follows: material proportion → transmission mode (bucket lift model) → material properties → discharge method → hopper form → lifting capacity of this series of bucket elevators → determine the model.
