Measure an Elevator Bucket & Product Usage Recommendations

Note :

  • 1. AA type bucket sizes are based on Nylon. All other type of bucket sizes are based on HDPE. Nylon and PUbucket size are approximately 2% larger than HDPE material bucket.

  • 2. Mounting hole dimensions of DM, EU type bucket are strictly according to our size tables, and we can customize mounting holes for all other types of buckets.

  • 3. Recommended bucket spacing for DM type bucket is C+2mm; all other bucket types are C+10mm. Actual spacing may adjust then.

  • 4. For engineering purposes, Prime recommends using Water Level + 10% for applicable designing capacity.

Elevator Bucket Venting

Venting holes on buckets improve airflow in elevator bucket to assist in materials filling and discharge. When materials entering empty bucket, air flows out from the bucket through venting holes allowing for a more complete fill. When discharge materials, air flows into the bucket through venting holes and pushes materials out of the bucket which facilitate complete discharge of bulk materials.

Venting holes available in various modes and shown below. Customization also available upon customer’s drawing/specifications.
