OBIAL bucket elevators economically carry the grainsvertically. The elevator system is designed for grains and is designed for theheaviest working conditions.
All OBIAL elevator systems consist of a column, drive unitcap, a tension unit, and zinc-plated sheet. Buckets used for verticalconveyance of grains are standard plastic, metal or zinc-plated metal bucketsspecifically produced by OBIAL.
Due to the water tight properties of the motor group (IP 55)located at the cap of the elevator system, it needs no cover. Drive from themotor to the reducer is through a V-belt pulley. The reducer is directlyconnected to the drive shaft. There are 2 observation lids at the cap of thedrive unit, allowing easy Access and maintenance. The inner part of the cap iscoated with rubber to make sure the grains are conveyed to the distribütör withno damage. And the cylinder over the cap is rubbercoated to prevent slipping ofthe belt and skidding.
There are 2 observation lids again for ease of access at thefooting of the elevator system and 2 portable lids to make cleaning easier. Thetensioning unit made up of zinc-coated sheet tensions the belt, which becomesloose during summer due to weather conditions and extended use, preventing itto perform less effectively. The lower cylinder consists of a steel cage toprevent the grains from being conveyed through the grain intakelid and the beltfrom being released.
