Bucket Elevator

Reliable. Robust. Easy to Maintain.

With the acquisition of Webac Gesellschaft für Maschinenbau GmbH, Simpson has been able to expand support for the foundry industry.

The Webac CC Series Bucket Elevator has been designed to be heavy-duty for green sand foundry applications. Engineered to meet each foundry’s needs with varying height ranges, bucket sizes, pully head sizes, and capacities.

Webac CC Series Bucket Elevator is engineered to operate automatically and is normally interlocked with other foundry support equipment, e.g. the cooler or mixer, raw material delivery systems, etc.

The bucket elevator featured on the right has a self-tensioning mechanism this can be ordered optionally to minimize maintenance and extend process reliability.
