Bucket Elevators

Together with our German partner "Wiese Förderelemente", Wiese Europe can also offer bucket elevators. Wiese's continuous bucket elevators and pendulum bucket elevators are based on the functional teamwork of a small number of components. The main component for driving force is the Wiese rubber chain.


High tensile strength is obtained by steel cables vulcanized in the centre of each chain. This makes the rubber chain stretch free. The Wiese rubber chain has unique features which makes it superior to metal chains. It is link and vibration free, silent (below 65dBA), slip and maintenance free, abrasion proof and has no metal grinding. Furthermore it is food approved, corrosion free and resistant to almost all chemicals. It needs no lubrication at all. This makes the rubber chain the outstanding feature of every Wiese elevator.


For both types of elevator the buckets are guided at the horizontal inlet. As there is no scooping, damage to the product or elevator itself is eliminated. In the vertical, product loss is not possible. At the discharge, the conveyed goods slide out of the bucket gently. The casings, which keep all the dust inside, are built from modules. This gives the opportunity to design different layouts according to the customer's individual needs.
