Tiptrak Bucket Elevator

Tiptrak Bucket Elevator

  • The TipTrak Bucket Elevator from Cybernetik is capable of running both horizontally and vertically, or at any angle in between using a single drive. The plastic buckets are interlocking and never separate. The heart of the TipTrak design is the patented TipTrak chain. This is moulded with an elastomer around it and bonded to a core of multiple strands of stainless steel aircraft cable. Similar to a timing belt in design, it has positive drive. With the stainless steel cable core (which is pre-stressed at the time of moulding to eliminate elongation), the TipTrak drive belt combines all the advantages of a chain, i.e strength and positive drive, with the benefits of a belt such as having no moving parts, corrosion resistance and a long life.
    This unique design eliminates the need for sprockets except at the drive end. At all other points the chain runs in a flanged pulley, much like a V-belt in a sheave.
    These design features deliver important advantages. By running horizontally and vertically without transfer points, your product can move from one process to another without spillage, degradation, dusting or segregation of blended products.
    The interlocking buckets ensure that there is no spillage at the infeed and because the buckets never separate, even on vertical lift, the only place your product leaves the buckets are at the discharge. Even here the TipTrak design allows for a gentle cascading of product, further reducing degradation.
    The TipTrak chain, through its unique combination of design and materials, delivers trouble free operation, year after year, even in the most demanding industrial environment. There are no roller chains to stretch or bushings to wear out. In fact, there are no moving parts in the TipTrak chain. The chain runs slack and, after the initial setup, never needs adjusting. Non-metallic construction makes the TipTrak ideal for situations requiring sanitary or corrosion resistant materials. This feature also means that conveyors are quiet. In short, the unique TipTrak construction means the gentlest handling, the least spillage, the lowest possible maintenance, and the quietest operation of any mechanical elevating device.
