Superior Digger Buckets

Style Digger - Available in steel and stainless steel. Diggers are used in a 1 to 10 ratio with plastic buckets to reduce abrasion when conveying materials that have a tendency to set up in the elevator boot. Slightly oversize, they provide proper digging action by loosening set-up or hardened material in the elevator boot. They are constructed of extra heavy steel with reinforced front lip that provides superior strength and abrasion resistance.

Popular steel sizes are stocked for immediate shipment.

Carbon Steel - 10 or 12 gauge steel.

Sizes: 6 x 4 1/2 to 16 x 10.

Stainless Steel ? 12 or 14 gauge.

Sizes: 6 x 4 1/2 to 16 x 10.




Superior Continuous Buckets

All continuous buckets constructed from 7, 10 or 12 gauge carbon steel or stainless steel feature continuous welds. Four styles of continuous buckets are available: High Front; Medium Front; High Front Overlapping; and Style D (Low Front). Primarily used in industrial applications, the buckets are closely spaced and run at low speeds. The front of each bucket acts as a discharge chute for each succeeding bucket. Punching for belt or chain is provided at no additional charge. Available in Steel, Stainless Steel, and Nylon.




Superior Special Buckets

3-piece buckets available in 4 styles. All are available in Type B (without double-thickness lip) or in Type A (with double thickness lip). All cups are punched with 9/32" holes for 1/4" bolts as standard, 11/32" holes for 5/16" bolts and 13/32" holes for 3/8" diameter bolts. Larger holes will be punched if specified?at no additional charge.

Styles CC-A; DP-A;DP-B;OK-A;OK-B;V-A;V-B; V-Low Back (universal style) are available.




Superior Industrial Buckets

Style AA - Used on centrifugal discharge bucket elevators and can be mounted on either chain or belt. Designed to handle fine and medium sized materials like cement and grain or heavy, abrasive materials like sand and stone. Style AA buckets have a thick, wide, reinforced lip that prolongs wear life and strengthens the bucket.

Available in Steel, Stainless Steel, Ductile Iron and Nylon. Ductile AA buckets are stocked for immediate shipment.

Style A - Same as Style AA - less front lip. Available on request.

Style AA-RB - Similar to the AA bucket except that they are designed for extra heavy service. Thicker backs and vertical ribs in the front are combined with a reinforced lip and corners to make this bucket ideal for the most severe service. Generally fabricated from steel, but are also available in ductile iron.

Available in Steel, Stainless Steel, Ductile Iron and Nylon.

Style AC - Used on centrifugal discharge bucket elevators for mounting on chain. Suitable for handling dry, fluffy materials such as lime or cement. AC buckets have a greater carrying capacity and faster, more thorough discharge. Air pressure relief holes in the bottom of the buckets assure efficient loading and unloading of the free flowing materials. The backs are hooded to permit closer bucket spacing and the high front increases capacity. The thick wide reinforced lips prolong wear life and prevent distortion.

Available in Steel, Stainless Steel and Ductile Iron.
