Low-Profile Elevator Bucket Helps Operators Maximize Output of Elevators

CCLP buckets increase capacity and improve efficiency

In late 2018, Tapco introduced its newest low-profile bucket, the CCLP HD.

According to Sales Manager Terry Geraghty, the CCLP HD is the first major improvement in the company’s popular CC bucket design that was first introduced in 1972.

“We’ve added more molded sizes to our lineup of patented CC buckets,” he says, “so elevator operators can maximize the output of their bucket elevators.”

Improved Efficiency

“Our new, patented CCLP buckets have shorter back height and a lower profile,” explains Geraghty, “but because they can be placed closer together, rather than losing capacity, it is significantly increased to improve efficiency.

“The ears help keep material in the bucket, so the CCLP improves efficiency without spillage,” he adds. “Application, performance, discharge, and all the other characteristics of our low-profile CC buckets are unchanged.”
