This versatile bucket comes in a wide range of materials to meet any needs you may have. They work especially well in high-throughput elevators that handle industrial-type materials. Whatever your elevator handles, there is a bucket to match it in the AA series.
The AA style bucket utilizes a 4-piece design consisting of two end plates, body and wear lip with the ends continuously welded to the body. All seams are continuously welded outside and partially inside. The bucket will be produced after Tapco supplies a CAD drawing to be approved by the customer.
Can be intermixed with existing fabricated or nonmetallic AA style buckets. If different weight buckets are mixed in, some care should be taken that the leg does not become too far out of balance. Check elevator for proper clearances. Contact Tapco for recommendations.
On belt: Fanged elevator bolts and nylon insert lock nuts are recommended for pulleys 6" in diameter and over. No. 3 Eclipse slotted head elevator bolts are recommended for pulleys under 6" in diameter. Flat steel washers must be placed inside the bucket under the nuts.
