Sudenga Bucket Elevator Components

Sudenga bucket elevators offer the value added features that you and your operation demand. Our finish is an attractive, durable blue enamel, with other colors available on request. Hot dipped galvanized finish is available for ultimate long term resistance to the elements.

Trunking sections are designed to provide superb dust and weather tight protection. Sections are jigged and continuous seam welded. Angle iron or plate flanges, depending on the series, are engineered for the job and minimize overlap to prevent the trapping of corrosive moisture or product. 14, 12, and 10 gauge trunking is available. Reinforced inspection stations ensure trunk integrity when removable covers are off.  Inspection ports can be positioned in four different locations by rotating the section and cover, allowing for easier ongoing inspection and maintenance.

Ladder and safety cage are standard galvanized construction. Head service platforms, distributor service platforms and OSHA rest platforms are painted or hot dipped galvanized and come assembled to save valuable time during installation.

All capacities are based on a 75% cup fill or water level plus 10%. Heavy duty polyethylene buckets resist bending, breaking and are lightweight. Bucket vents are standard. Standard SCOF (static conducting, oil resistant, flame resistant) Goodyear Pathfinder “Supreme” rubber belting is “the best there is”, and stays flexible in cold weather. PVC belting, belting for high oil exposure, and a variety of cup types are available upon request.
