Continuous barge unloaders play a vital role in bulk material handling, which makes it all the more important that these components are operating as efficiently as possible. Fortunately, new Continuous Barge Unloader buckets and chains can provide a significant increase in the volume of material you can handle. A simple upgrade can translate into the ability to move more material faster and with less waste.
Modern bucket and chains are specially designed and manufactured to provide lasting performance that will stand up to the toughest materials and work environments. Today’s buckets feature sprockets and chain rollers that have been flame hardened and outfitted with dual seals. These extras are designed to prevent contamination and seizing for smooth and continuous operation.
In addition, high alloy steel buckets are designed with specific mechanical properties in mind. Instead of simply providing a certain ratio of alloy, Continuous Barge Unloader buckets are manufactured to provide unbeatable strength. This same approach to alloy is used in creating abrasion resistant cutting lips and wear bars. With the right accessories, your equipment will continue to easily cut into rough materials and grab more with each pass.
Here are just a few of the advantages that come with adding new continuous barge unloader buckets and chains to your existing system:
- Because of sharp cutting lips and strong wear bars, a higher volume of materials is transported each time and the entire operation runs more efficiently.
- Better design and high alloy construction means that new buckets last much longer than those that may be currently used in your system. Chains designed with dual seals on rollers keep lubrication in and contaminants out. As a result, you won’t have to worry about putting up with worn buckets and chains or having to frequently invest in repairs and updates.
- Less maintenance also reduces unnecessary downtime. There is nothing more detrimental to a business and profits than having to halt operations to deal with repairs, especially when those repairs could have been prevented.
