According to Gough Econ, the multiple bucket elevators will be used to transport various grades of catalyst to several stations in the world-scale hydro-processing catalyst manufacturing facility currently under construction. Bucket sizes will range from 9 to 30 in., with capacities up to 2500 cu ft/hr. Start-up of the facility is scheduled for the end 2009.
The bucket elevators are being custom designed by Gough Econ for the application to assure maximum durability and easy installation and assure maximum resistance to the abrasive nature of the catalyst. Delivery is scheduled for late summer of 2008.
