Pendulum Bucket Conveyors

Pendulum bucket conveyors are used to transport loose powder and bulk materials from one or more feed points to one or more discharge points and elevate them to different levels and/or bagging packing stations as needed. During conveying, the bucket opening continually faces upwards to ensure minimal spillage and optimum efficiency.

NERAK custom designs pendulum bucket conveyor systems to meet each customer’s specific needs.

NERAK pendulum bucket conveyors run quietly and are space efficient. And because each pendulum bucket conveyor features the NERAK rubber block chain, you can be assured of low maintenance and long life. Both the rubber block chain and buckets are corrosion-free and chemical resistant, even when handling hot, moist, or abrasive products. NERAK’s modular design allows for quick parts replacement.

NERAK’s expertise in bucket conveyor design/build encompasses a variety of options including:

  • Single or multiple feed inlets
  • Can have single discharge point
  • Combination of horizontal, vertical and/or inclining conveying paths—no need for additional transfers
  • Plastic buckets, stainless steel or wear steel buckets, or detectable plastic buckets for food products
  • Also available: aluminum, heat resistant, antistatic, or unbonded.
  • Bucket sizes from 150mm (1.5L) to 800mm (52.1L)
  • Sheet metal, gas-tight, open-frame, or explosion-proof design
  • Open, dust-tight, water-tight or pressure shock-resistant casings
