MAFAL bucket elevators economically carry the grains vertically. The elevator system is designed for grains and is designed for the heaviest working conditions.
All MAFAL elevator systems consist of a column, drive unit cap, a tension unit, and zinc-plated sheet. Buckets used for vertical conveyance of grains are standard plastic, metal or zinc-plated metal buckets specifically produced by MAFAL.
Due to the watertight properties of the motor group (IP 55) located at the cap of the elevator system, it needs no cover. Drive from the motor to the reducer is through a V-belt pulley. The reducer is directly connected to the drive shaft. There are 2 observation lids at the cap of the drive unit, allowing easy access and maintenance. The inner part of the cap is coated with rubber to make sure the grains are conveyed to the distributor with no damage. And the cylinder over the cap is rubber coated to prevent slipping of the belt and skidding.
There are 2 observation lids again for ease of access at the footing of the elevator system and 2 portable lids to make cleaning easier. The tensioning unit made up of zinc-coated sheet tensions the belt, which becomes loose during summer due to weather conditions and extended use, preventing it to perform less effectively. The lower cylinder consists of a steel cage to prevent the grains from being conveyed through the grain intake lid and the belt from being released.
