Where the vertical conveyance of bulk products is concerned, bucket conveyors are now indispensable in many areas — whether it is in the base materials industry, in the manufacture of construction materials, food, or in the chemical industry.

They are suitable for almost all bulk goods: From powder-like, grainy, chunky, or highly fluid to heavy and abrasive. They are also used for liquid, sticky, and hot goods. The decision as to which type of bucket conveyor to use depends on the goods to be conveyed, mechanical and thermal stresses, drive concept and planned service life.
