Gentle self-cleaning conveying system for seed grain
Bucket elevators are the gentlest conveying for vertical lifting when conveying seed grain. The grain is carried up vertically in a bucket without any impact to the kernels. For horizontal conveying, belt conveyor is a solid option. The grain is laying without any impact on a moving belt carrying the grain to the discharge point.
The belt conveyor is self-cleaning, which means there are no kernels laying back in the conveyor after there is no grain filled into the unit and it is running empty.
The bucket elevator is easily emptied in the bottom through a small removable door for a small quantity of grain remaining there after the conveying is finished. Bucket elevators and belt conveyors are the most energy efficient conveying systems for grain conveying.
