The bucket elevator is one of the straight conveyances used for metal and non-metal ores such as gravel, cement, bauxite, coal, and so on. This tool with a capacity of 6-46 m3 / h has an upward carrying capacity which is also applied to sand, gypsum, limestone and other granular materials. With its large capacity this tool is capable of having a long life even with relatively easy maintenance and operation. Equipped with good sealing on this tool, so that it can minimize pollution to the environment.
The working principle of the bucket elevator begins with the movement of circulation by the bucket when the motor is started, where the movement is carried out along the leg with a movement from bottom to top. Then the material enters the bucket which continues to the head of the lift and is discharged under the influence of gravity and centrifugal forces. Then the loop is repeated, such as when the bucket belt rotates around the head pulley (before the material enters the bucket), until the disposal of the materials at the bottom is lifted to a certain height. This is done so that the vertical lifting conditions can be met.
Electromagnetic Vibrating Feeder
In the world of mining and industry of course it will require electromagnetic vibrating feeders to complete certain projects. The main use of this tool is for the continuous feeding of powder, bulk material, lumps and granules. In addition, this tool has a controller that functions to accurately control the feed so that it can operate effectively and efficiently. This tool also has an important role in determining the performance of milling machines, screening equipment, conveyor belts, and the like.
Lubrication on a tool which has a capacity of 5-100 t / h is only required for certain parts. Not only engaged in industry and mining, this tool is also often used for building materials, ceramics, metallurgy, and other quantitative materials. The working principle of the electromagnetic vibrating feeder is the principle of self-synchronization through the use of two eccentric vibration motors to form a 60˚ combined force. Then to remove the material from the tub, it is necessary to push through periodic vibrations so that it can feed granules, powders, and others to certain tools continuously.
