U Series Bucket Elevators

U Series Bucket Elevators

U Series bucket elevators utilize a single trunk casing and are built with thicker steel to handle corrosive, abrasive and hostile materials. When the elevator experiences extreme temperatures and/or additional harsh material characteristics, Universal Industries, Inc.® offers chain instead of belt for various U Series Elevators.

 

Each U Series model offers an EASY DUMP® capacity rating that utilizes gravity discharge techniques to reduce product damage. After product is transferred into the elevator, the buckets travel up at a low rate of speed and then slowly tilt over the head pulley to allow the product to gently cascade down into the discharge housing. This continuous cycle provides a smooth flow of material with minimal damage.

 

Each of our elevators can reach a range of different capacities and speeds, while offering similar accessories and options for each one. Available in powder coated carbon, stainless, or galvanized steel with buckets available in HDPE, carbon steel, nylon and urethane.

(EASY DUMP® speed, the speed suggested for gentle handling, is only guaranteed on the lowest capacity for each elevator).

 

Boot cleanout options are available for U Series models. View Options »
