Econ-O-Lift™ – Food and Industrial Applications
The Econ-o-Lift bucket elevator’s robust construction is built for durability and easy installation. It features a collapsing chain and 360-degree discharge with multiple discharge and inlet feeds for maximum flexibility. This bucket elevator can also be designed for food manufacturing applications with food-grade, stainless steel, or plastic conveyor surfaces that allow your company to comply with the regulatory standards specific to your industry.
With the Econ-o-Lift, buckets remain upright throughout the circuit reducing the probability for product spills and allowing the option for multiple discharge points from the lower rung of the bucket elevator. This will help minimize breakage from product discharge drop heights.
Additionally, the buckets feature a trailing curved lip that, when interlocked with the bucket in front and behind, allows the product being introduced into the Econ-O-Lift to flow directly and cleanly into each bucket cavity.
The result is flexible equipment that handles a variety of products for many different industries. For food and delicate products, the equipment is designed for gentle and efficient handling to protect the product and to reduce spillage. Gough Econ’s engineers have installed nearly 600 of these units to date and we continue to recommend them to our clients.
