A bucket elevator is a mechanism used to transport bulk products vertically. (as in the case of grains, seeds, fertilizers, etc.).
Is the equivalent of a conveyor belt but vertically.
Un elevador de cangilones es un mecanismo que se utiliza para el transporte de productos a granel de manera vertical. (como en el caso de granos, semillas, fertilizantes, etc.)
Es el equivalente a una banda transportadora pero de forma vertical.
The function of the elevator is to take, by buckets, the product of a pit or pile, then transport it vertically at a high speed and by means of centrifugal force the product is thrown into another conduit whose function will be to distribute by the different channels the product and then reach its storage destination. This happens while the buckets descend empty to repeat the cyclic process.
