From Grain Handling
Our exclusive low-profile head is designed to minimize breakage-causing impact points. Components are manufactured to precise standards from heavy gauge materials to provide easy installation and strength. And Chief bucket elevators are designed for convenience with urethane liners, easy-open hinged discharge inspection doors, and head hood slide clamps.
Chief’s exclusive staggered-head hood-to-housing connection forms a no-impact transition.
The discharge baffle is fabricated from UHMW (Ultra High Molecular Weight) plastic for extreme durability and spark resistance.
An explosion relief vent is conveniently located in the back hood side of the head housing to eliminate interference or turbulence from elevator bucket material discharges.
Chief uses ball bearing or spherical pillow blocks designed to withstand the most abrasive, corrosive conditions on all sizes of elevators. In addition, all shafts are, at minimum, CR 1045 material, with UHMW shaft seals.
Our no-tool inspection door provides easy access to the discharge throat of the bucket elevator head.
To ensure optimum durability, our crown-faced slide lagged or vulcanized rubber lagged head pulleys are fabricated to the stringent standards of the mining industry. Laggings are rated SOF (Static conducting, Oil resistant and Fire retardant.)
