Benefits of Plastic Over Metal
This material is non-corrosive, tough and flexible, which makes polyethylene perfect for free-flowing product applications.
Buckets that are constructed from rigid and abrasion-resistant nylon are ideal for their ability to stand up to extreme abuse.
Tough, yet flexible, urethane buckets are ideal for abrasive or high-throughput applications in order to reduce back-legging.
Eliminates the possibility of explosions from foreign objects or bent and torn metal buckets.
Plastic bends and yields to bypass an obstruction then return to its original shape.
Plastic will never oxidize or rust.
Creates less wear and tear on mechanical elevator components and saves energy costs.
Saves on Costs
The system uses less energy due to plastic’s lighter weight and saves on component costs because they require less heavy belts, smaller pulley shafts and lower horsepower motors.
Variety of Plastic Resins
Each option satisfies specific application requirements for the material being conveyed and the operation temperature.
No Sharp Edges
Plastic offers safer handling and eliminates the risk of cuts.
Plastic buckets cost less than similar fabricated steel equivalents.
Plastic resins are safe to use in human food products and livestock feed.
