Injection-Molded Elevator Buckets

January 16, 2014

Xtreme Duty (CC-XD) elevator buckets are injection molded with 35-50% more resin throughout the entire bucket – not just at critical wear points. Identifying marks are a reinforced 5/8-in-thick front lip and distinctive ‘breaks’ on the bottom of the bucket that provide an ideal commodity trajectory. Xtreme Duty buckets are available in 12 size ranges up to 20 x 10 in. The 20 x 10 in. buckets carry 1056.6 cu in. of actual capacity, and run at speeds up to 30% faster than competitive models. Polyethylene (for free-flowing product applications) and urethane (for extreme abrasion resistance) buckets are made with FDA-compliant resins. FDA-compliant nylon (for rough and abrasive applications) resin is available by special request. Tapco’s inventory exceeds 900,000 buckets in 93 sizes.
