Bucket elevators for mining and minerals

Our bucket elevators are the economical solution when it comes to vertical transport of bulk material. They have been continuously developed further over the last decades and are always state of the art, so that they can meet the high requirements of mining applications.

Belt or chain bucket elevators for the mining industry?

Belt bucket elevators use is becoming increasingly common, because they offer many advantages compared to chain bucket elevators. Our steel wire belts, for example, allow considerably longer lifetime than chains. Our central chain bucket elevators are only used, when the material temperature of the bulk material to be transported permanently exceeds 130 °C. This means that only the permanent temperature of the bulk material decides whether a belt bucket elevator or a chain bucket elevator is required.


  • Speed monitoring
  • Boot casing level monitoring
  • Special solutions for sticky materials
  • Corrosion resistent – completely or partly in stainless steel
  • Belt misalignment monitoring, electronically or mechanically

Highly robust steel wire belts

The belt is the key component of the belt bucket elevator. As a market leader, we have developed highly strong steel wire belts with wire-free zones for the bucket fixing. Our high capacity steel wire belts are available with belt strengths of up to 3,300 N/mm. Fabric belts are available for lower strengths.

For an even distribution of the retention forces, the buckets are mounted with forged segment fastening. This mind of fixing is reliable in preventing the buckets from getting loose. Additional rubber plattes between bucket and belt reinforce the bucket/belt connection.
