A new bucket elevator that moves material in three different directions is now available from Gough Econ, Inc. (Charlotte, NC). The Gough Elecon bucket conveyor and elevator system is ideal for applications requiring gentle handling, according to the manufacturer. Cantilevered buckets can move vertically, horizontally, and can turn any direction up to 90° without having to transfer the load being conveyed. Additional features include:
- A rack-and-pinion system that assures full discharge with a 360° bucket rotation on selection.
- A polypropylene bucket construction, with a smooth interior surface to eliminate product traps and provide cleanliness.
- A heavy-duty tri-planar chain, a tubular rack, and a vertical drive plate for power transfer and chain tension.
