Meeker Equipment Introduces Line of Vertical HMA Bucket Elevators
BY AsphaltPro Staff
Meeker Equipment, Belleville, Pennsylvania, recently introduced its line of vertical hot-mix asphalt (HMA) bucket elevators to the market, and built a new silo system using the system to save space for the customer pictured here. The bucket elevator is a good choice for HMA producers who need to save space at their asphalt plant. Bucket elevators take up approximately two-thirds less space as compared to drag slat conveyors.
The Meeker bucket elevator uses massive 6-inch pitch chain, hardened head and tail sprockets, and an internal gravity take up. The bucket elevator also uses a hydraulic pump to extrude asphalt out of the bottom of the bucket elevator after a day’s/night’s run.
Meeker also manufactures hot-mix silos up to 300 tons, silos with long term storage gates that are also equipped with safety gates. Meeker silos also have recessed wall liners to mitigate excessive wear.
