Space Efficient

This page describes a new generation of bucket elevators from Ryson International. They are of the enclosed pivoting bucket type and can have multiple in and outlets.


The bucket elevators combine vertical and horizontal transportation of bulk material in one integral unit. They are of modular design and rugged construction, making them suitable for a wide variety of applications. All bucket elevators can be delivered in painted carbon steel, stainless steel or washdown versions.


Gentle Handling

The Ryson Bucket Elevators are designed for gentle handling and quiet operation. The buckets facilitate transportation of measured quantities and are available in several sizes.


The buckets are overlapping at the infeed and remain in an upward position until emptied, thereby preventing spillage.


Rugged Construction


The Ryson Bucket Elevators are designed for heavy duty operations and long life. They can be delivered in painted carbon steel, stainless steel or washdown versions. Elevators with multiple outlets have selective bucket tipping capabilities. This is accomplished by an air actuated tipping ramp. The last tipping ramp is always in a fixed position to assure that all buckets are emptied.


The chain is a 2" roller chain with hollow pin shaft and 1 1/8" diameter rollers. The rolling surface is made of polyurethane assuring smooth and quiet operation. The buckets are made of a food grade reinforced polycarbonate, molded in one piece and a can handle temperatures from -5 to 215 degrees Fahrenheit. Anti-static and stainless steel buckets are optional.


The bucket elevators allow for controlled feeds at one or more locations and can easily interface with various types of feeding devices.
