Bucket Elevators

Product at a Glance

Bucket elevators lift material vertically with buckets attached to a belt that runs a continuous loop around an upper (driven) and lower (idler) pulley.


Product Applications

The VIS bucket elevator product line is suitable for conveying many bulk materials including grain and grain by products, fertilizer, livestock and poultry feed ingredients, aggregates and other free flowing bulk materials. Bucket elevators are well suited to handle materials gently and are an energy efficient method of elevating materials.


VIS Advantage

VIS bucket elevators are specifically configured to meet the requirements of the material being elevated. Stainless steel is used extensively for the corrosive environment of fertilizer and wear resistant steel is used in high capacity grain bucket elevators. Each elevator manufactured by VIS is extensively analyzed to ensure a suitable configuration for the application. VIS buckets elevators are designed for high duty cycle environments and all components are of superior grade.
