U2 Series
Fragile or Abrasive
U Series Bucket Elevators—

First designed especially for fertilizer and abrasive material handling and now used in many other applications because they last longer than other legs. Single leg design and heavier in every way: materials of construction, bearings, belting, buckets. For most hostile applications. 14 models with capacities ranging from 94 ft3/h to 7,500 ft3/h.

There's no better solution to handling shake-out sand, steel shot, deburring media (fine or coarse) and highly abrasive material. Better sealing, replaceable UHMW boot liners and low inlet height make the big difference! Try just one; you'll never settle for any other elevator for such applications.

Bucket Elevators up to 2,000 ft3/h (56 m3/h)/75 tph
Exclusive "EASY DUMPTM" Design (U2-800ED only)
Top Takeup Option Available on U1 and U2 Models
