Best Maximum Duty Polyethylene
The Alaska is the original maximum duty elevator bucket, designed and engineered to increase bucket life and reduce breakage. This will reduce down time and lower maintenance costs. The Alaska bucket has the thickest lip, back wall and corners to extend the life of the bucket. Standard spacing is nominal projection + 2". The most common applications include grain, fertilizers, pellets, corn, wheat, soybeans and other agricultural and light industrial applications. This is the best bucket for high volume applications. The belt width for a single row of buckets is actual bucket width plus 2".
- Thicker corners
- Thicker walls, heavy front lip for digging
- More capacity
- Cleaner discharge
- High impact and abrasion resistant
- Non-corrosive, non-sparking
- Increases elevator capacity
- Lowers elevator maintenance
- Extends bucket life
- Decreases elevator down-time
- Corrosion resistant
MOUNTING HOLES AND VENTING TO YOUR SPECIFICATIONS
Elevator buckets are manufactured without a drill pattern. Special drilling or punching can be accommodated upon customer request.
Available as needed.
Use slightly larger metal digger elevator buckets to help loosen material in the elevator boot section that has set up or hardened, thereby reducing abrasion on the plastic buckets. Call for details on Metal Digger elevator bucket options.
See elevator bucket spacing details in the Alaska Bucket chart above (depending on materials and speeds, smaller and larger spacing may be used).
Use a #1 standard elevator bolt or Sabre-Tooth elevator bolt for installation. Designed to be used with fender or flat and lock washers and hex or locking nuts. If buckets are being installed on chain, use hex head bolts, nuts and washers.
Ecommended for chain mounting applications.
Both the urethane and polyethylene are designed to FDA specifications for direct contact with food products.
