Explosion-Proof Bucket Elevator Alignment Control

July 21, 2014

The explosion-proof Model VA-X bucket elevator alignment control is designed to indicate when the head or boot section of a bucket elevator drifts too far out of alignment. It can be used to signal a problem or simply shut down the bucket elevator leg. The Model VA-X control device has a sequential two-pole double-break microswitch rated for 20 amps at 120, 240, or 480 VAC. The switch actuation is field adjustable with a simple 3/32 hex wrench adjustment. The metal roller is sturdy and bi-directional, and designed to survive in harsh environments. The housing is a rugged polyester powder coated steel frame with a specially designed non-accumulating pocket. The microswitch is rated NEMA Type 7/9 for use in hazardous locations. General purpose models are available.
