Bucket Elevator Maximizes Bucket Fill, Increases Handling Capacity

10-inch projection buckets easy to fill uniformly

Union Iron has built material handling equipment for the grain industry for more than 160 years. In spring 2017, the company introduced the Union Iron 10-inch projection bucket elevator.

“Using a deeper bucket elevator leg casing enables the use of buckets with a 10-inch projection,” says General Manager David Wernsing. “The 10-inch projection bucket elevator maximizes bucket fill and provides higher handling capacity with fewer rows of buckets. Earlier versions of this product were limited to 8-inch projection buckets.”

Lower Costs, Higher Efficiency

“Using 10-inch projection buckets makes it easier to fill the buckets uniformly,” he explains. “It also decreases the footprint of the bucket elevator and lowers costs by reducing the amount of steel required and hastens installation. The 10-inch projection buckets also limit or decrease grain damage by providing gentler grain handling.”
