Bucket Elevators


Bucket elevators manufactured by "MELINVEST" JSC are meant for bulk product lifting up.
Bucket elevators are used both as a part of Melinvests technological lines and for updating the existing facilities of native and international brands.

  • The capacity from 5 up to 250 t/h.
  • Maximum height 65 m.

What makes Melinvests bucket elevators differ profitably from bucket elevators of other manufacturers:

  • Galvanized-steel body which ensures trouble-free operation 10 years and longer
  • Wear-resistant polymeric coating of the bucket elevator head and shoe allows protecting the elements from wear and tear as well as reducing grain crack and crash considerably

The use of polymeric buckets gives the following advantages

  • Handling power economy due to buckets weight twice reduction makes up 15-20%
  • Absence of non-free flowing products as well as moisty products stickin
  • Absence of deformation caused by impacts
  • Absence of corrosion
  • Operating life is two-three times longer than that of metallic buckets

Bucket Elevators Universality


  • Motor-reducers can be placed both at the right and at the left side
  • Grain can be loaded both along the movement of the belt with buckets and against this movement
  • Bucket elevators are completed with explosion relieving devices, belt speed and run-out control device, back-up indicator, braking mechanism, preventing the belt reverse movement in case of bucket elevator sudden stop

Bucket elevators can be completed with motor-reducers manufactured by Bauer (Germany) and Bonfiglioli (Italy) at the Customers discretion.
