Auxiliary drive for slow movements

In some instances the bucket elevator is only allowed to operate at a reduced speed, such as during maintenance. That's why our bucket elevator drive has a directly mounted auxiliary drive from our modular system. It ensures that the necessary slow movement is provided when the main motor is shut down.

This auxiliary drive is available in the "empty bucket" or "full bucket" designs. All the components in our application solution are perfectly adapted to the relevant application.
