Bucket Elevator Chains

A bucket elevator is a conveyor in which buckets are installed on a vertically circulating chain, to vertically convey loads
of granular powder. There are two series of bucket elevators: NE Type (standard speed) and NSE Type (high speed).
Both types have wide-ranging applications.

(a) NE Bucket Elevator Chains

An NE type bucket elevator is a general-use bucket
elevator that operates at a normal conveyance speed.
The elevator is manufactured with two types of chains:
Standard Conveyor Chain with Attachment G4 (standard
or heavy-duty) and DK Strong Z Conveyor Chain.
