New larger capacity 'mid-size' elecon bucket

03 September 2010

A mid-size Elecon bucket conveyor and elevator system from Gough Econ of Charlotte, North Carolina, has been introduced with a larger capacity bucket design

The larger capacity design is for higher throughput and applications beyond typical dry bulk material handling.

Gough Econ markets its products in Europe, Australia, Latin America, South Africa and other countries worldwide through a network of overseas representatives.

With an increased bucket capacity of 8113 cm3 (495 in3), the new Gough Elecon mid-range bucket elevator offers more than twice the capacity of the original Elecon system. “The new and additional capacity expands this unit’s capability to not only process applications where our customers traditionally are familiar with this product but now also allows for its placement in typical higher volumetric capacity packaging system applications,” noted David Risley, President and Chief Executive Officer of Gough Econ.

Beside the Gough Elecon in-line bucket elevators, Gough Econ markets other products including the Econ-O-Lift and Swinglink in-line bucket elevators, vibratory screeners and conveyors, belt conveyors, hoppers, tote dumpers, vibratory feeders, bulk bag handling equipment and storage conveyors.
