Reasonable Selection of Driven Device for Bucket Elevator


 As we know the bucket elevator can be divided into many types,such as TD,TDG,TH,THG,TB,NE and so on.
Different types with different driven devices,it’s very important for customer to select a suitable driven type,because a reasonable driven device can save much cost.At the same time,it also can promise a good running effect, the main type is as below:
1.Direct connection,this type means the gear motor directly connecting with the driven shaft.In all driven types,this type has the smallest space,it doesn’t need installation platform and coupling,etc,the structure is very compact,for this reason,the weight of this type driven device is light,while this type is only suitable for small power(less than 22kw),small lifting height(less than 30 meters).
2.Motor+Reducer,this type is also the frequently-used type,it need installation platform,coupling,etc,so the space is larger than the first one,but this type has a very stable performance,and for the large power and high lifting height,this type is better than direct connection.What’s more,the price is not expensive,besides,its another advantage is that it is benefit for driven device,which can help customer to inspect and maintain the equipment.
