Bucket Elevators, Bucket Conveyors and More
A new generation of bucket elevators from conveyor manufacturers Ryson International
Ryson International has developed a new generation of bucket elevators and bucket conveyors. These enclosed pivoting bucket systems can have multiple in and outlets. The bucket elevators combine vertical and horizontal transportation of bulk material in one integral unit. Their modular design and rugged construction make them suitable for a wide variety of applications. Choose from painted carbon steel, stainless steel or washdown versions.

The Ryson bucket elevators are designed for gentle handling and quiet operation to facilitate transportation of measured quantities. Available in several sizes, the buckets overlap at the infeed and remain in an upward position until emptied to prevent spills. Ryson Bucket Elevators are well-suited for a broad range of bulk products in the food, agriculture, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, chemical, ceramic, glass, recycling, building and metallurgical industries.
Bucket Elevators with Rugged Construction
The Ryson Bucket Elevators are designed to withstand many years of heavy duty operations. Elevators with multiple outlets have selective bucket tipping capabilities created by an air actuated tipping ramp. The last tipping ramp stays in a fixed position to assure that all buckets are emptied.
The chain is a 2″ roller chain with hollow pin shaft and 1 1/8″ diameter rollers. The conveying surface is made of polyurethane for smooth and quiet operation. The buckets are made of a food grade reinforced polycarbonate molded in one piece that can handle temperatures from -5 to 215 degrees Fahrenheit.
Anti-static and stainless steel buckets are optional. The bucket elevators allow for controlled feeds at one or more locations and can easily interface with various types of feeding devices.

Bucket Elevator Models
Three standard models are available, sized to handle capacities of up to 350, 830 and 2,000 cubic feet per hour. Ryson also provides custom solutions to help those with needs that fall outside of our standard models.
Optional Bucket Elevator Features
Several optional features are available to accommodate specific needs:
- Dust proof enclosures
- Weather tight construction
- Anti-static buckets
- Stainless steel buckets
- Built-in forced ventilation
- Automatic bucket cleaning
- Variable speed
- Explosion proof
Ryson bucket elevators use only high quality, low maintenance components. All models have easy to remove inspection covers and a conveniently located inspection window. Drawers underneath all horizontal sections facilitate easy cleaning, while smooth inside walls prevent dust buildup. All bearings are mounted outside for easy access. The buckets have a quick release mechanism to facilitate fast installation or removal of buckets. All elevators are equipped with an automatic chain tensioning device and built-in overload protection.
Modular Design of Our Bucket Elevators
The modular design accommodates a wide range of configurations and makes the elevators easy to install and modify. The most universal configurations are the C and Z versions. Many other configurations are possible; some examples are shown below.
