Gough Econ Elecon bucket conveyor and elevator system

Tuesday, 02 November, 2010 | Supplied by: Australis Engineering Pty Ltd



Gough Econ has released the mid-size Elecon bucket conveyor and elevator system which has a larger capacity bucket design for higher throughput and applications beyond typical dry bulk-material handling.

With a bucket capacity of 8113 cm3, the mid-range bucket elevator offers more than twice the capacity of the original Elecon system.

The multi-axis Go Anywhere conveyor has a chain and wedge-shaped cantilevered bucket that come together and overlap at the load or fill station. The rack and pinion system assures full discharge with a 360° bucket rotation on selection and quick return to the upright position for maximum flexibility.

The mid-size Elecon can convey material in three different directions: vertically, horizontally or any direction up to 180°. This is done without having to transfer the load being conveyed. It also lets users fit the conveyor within their production facility instead of modifying their facility to accommodate the materials handling system.

Applications in the food industry include handling items such as cereal, coffee/tea, confectionary, pasta, pet food, salt/spices and snack products.

Like the other Elecon bucket elevators, the mid-size unit consists of a heavy-duty, tri-planar chain, a tubular track and a vertical drive plate for power transfer and chain tension. The chain is constructed of investment cast PIAD alloy links and cruciforms and sealed roller bearings. The chains are assembled individually at Gough Econ’s manufacturing facility to meet precise specifications and to assure reliability and durability. The chain’s wash-through design and PIAD non-corrosive alloy components meet food sanitation requirements.

Multiple cover panel options are available to meet specific needs.

Made of folded steel, the panels can be enclosed with steel or Lexan panels or they can be left open with the tubes exposed. Open construction allows for easier cleaning and maintenance, whereas the two enclosed cases are appropriate for safety applications or to maintain a controlled environment.
