MULTI-DISCHARGE DOSING BUCKET ELEVATORS
Multi-discharge bucket elevators have the same capacities and are used in the
same areas of application as bucket elevators. This type of bucket elevator can
be loaded at various infeed points but, unlike the bucket elevator, the
buckets can be discharged separately at various discharge points. At the
discharge points, the buckets are individually ( for example pneumatically) turned
over. An additional application possibility of these elevators is their use as
dosing unit for packaging, weighing ore counting systems.
Contrary to the bucket elevators, the buckets are not interconnected so
that they can turn over individually.
