The buckets remain continuously in a horizontal position regardless of conveyor direction. The product remains in the bucket avoiding spillage. With the inlet station in the horizontal the overlapping pendulum bucket belt forms a constant closed conveyor system avoiding product loss during metered feeding. The outlet stations can be picked at random and can be controlled either pneumatically or electrically with feedback signals if required.
The WIESE pendulum bucket conveyor has many advantages. As the driving force we have the Wiese rubber chains. These run quietly without stretching and require no lubrication. The free swinging buckets can be removed without the use of tools, making cleaning much more user friendly and no humidity will be carried into the casing.
Apart from the standard and common conveyor lines other shapes such as 'O' or 'T' are also possible. Ask our engineering team in Burgwedel… we have the solution for your conveying application. Wiese pendulum bucket conveyors are almost unlimited in the horizontal and vertical configurations.
The housing is standard in sheet metal trunks, either painted carbon steel or as stainless steel. Having a modular form allows high quality and reliability as every segment is tried and tested. For better maintenance and cleaning, for example in the food industry, it is possible in the horizontal sections to fit large removable side covers in the horizontal section.
Wiese pendulum bucket conveyors are ideal for the gentle and reliable conveyance of chocolate, chewing gum, Euro coins and even metal powder. A full list of products being conveyed can be found in the listing Powder and Bulk Materials.
