An Industry Leader among Bucket Elevator Manufacturers – Materials Handling Equipment
Materials Handling Equipment (MHE) stands above other bucket elevator manufacturers because we offer experience and custom engineering that our competitors can’t match. We’ve been providing custom conveyor solutions for a wide array of industries since 1927, and every conveyor we design and build is custom engineered to meet specific demands. Additionally, we believe in making sure that our clients have their needs met, from the initial site visit to the final installation of their custom conveyors.
Our Bucket Elevators Can Handle Any Application
While many bucket elevator manufacturers offer products that only meet some of a company’s needs, MHE custom engineers conveyors for specific duties, including:
- Industrial duty – Standard and food grade conveyors
- Mill duty – Perfect for wood chips (high speed)
- Heavy duty – Featuring structural steel construction
- Cement mill duty – Constructed for 20+ years of service with special maintenance features
- Severe duty – Able to withstand extreme heat, corrosion, and abrasion
Our bucket elevators also feature industry-best specifications, including:
- Capacities up to 1500 TPH
- Inclines up to 60 degrees
- Heights up to 200+ feet
- Multiple belt and chain styles
- Temperatures up to 1200 degrees Fahrenheit
What Are the Benefits of Having Your Bucket Elevator Custom Manufactured?
Many of our competitors offer prefabricated conveyors that serve as “cookie-cutter” options for industrial facilities. These often come with unnecessary features and don’t fit well into the space they need to occupy. When you partner with MHE, we will visit your plant and meet with your engineers to get a deep understanding of exactly what you are trying to accomplish. Then, we will manufacture your bucket elevator to exacting specifications, ensuring that it’s a perfect fit and that it’s easy for your staff to operate. Because we’re able to avoid unnecessary components, our custom bucket elevators are priced similarly to those that are mass produced. Additionally, our bucket elevator conveyors have custom-engineered drive components and heavy-duty Ni-Hard gravity take-up bearings, which improve their operation and reliability and give them a longer service life. In fact, some of our conveyors are still in regular operation more than a half-century after they were delivered and installed.
