Bucket Elevator Alignment Control

August 30, 2012

The model VA & VAX bucket elevator alignment control is designed to indicate when the head or boot section of a bucket elevator drifts too far out of alignment. The model VA & VAX can be used to signal a problem or simply shut down the bucket elevator leg. This 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 difficult environments. The housing is a rugged polyester powder-coated steel frame with a specially designed non-accumulating pocket. The microswitch is rated for NEMA 4 weatherproof, or NEMA 7/9 explosion proof. Epoxy coating is an option.
