Bucket elevators play a critical role in many operations as they are used to lift aggregate material to the start of gravity fed processes. Tsubaki of Canada Ltd. is the best source for bucket elevator chains with our selection of chain that is specifically designed for service in cement plants. Our chains offer the highest ultimate and fatigue strengths available and are built to last in demanding applications. For instance, our Workhorse series elevator chains are expertly designed for bulk material handling environments with harsh fine particulates including lime, cement, salt, potash, and gypsum.
Bucket elevator chain
Our Workhorse series chain was developed by drawing on our experience in the aggregate segment, and a proprietary blend of high quality domestic steels and refined heat treatments. The result is that our Workhorse series offers exceptional strength, toughness, and dependability.
Our chains are available with a number of optional upgrades to suit the specific application. Some of them include plated pins and bushings, and patented joint seals. Our experienced engineers can offer assistance in choosing the best options for the particular application.
Chain with our patented sealed joints has extended bushings that minimize clearance between the bushings and outside bars, creating a solid barrier to keep out abrasive material. They also have a high temperature polymer seal around the extended bushing for additional particulate resistance. In addition, a stainless steel internal ring seal holds onto the pin and rotates within a groove in the bushing. This creates a labyrinth that helps keep debris out of the pin/bushing area.
