Bucket Elevators

Let IBT assist you with your next bucket elevator overhaul.  We are a leading distributor of Rubber and PVC leg belting that we slit to width and punch for your bucket application. Fully line your elevator head housing and other high-wear areas with easy-to-install,  urethane liners that offer great abrasion-resistant properties while reducing noise and corrosion. These are available in various thicknesses commonly stocked in expanded metal-backed (EMB) with select thicknesses in fabric backed.

From a head section with urethane liner and UHMW throat plates, down to the boot section with spiral-wrapped wing pulleys, IBT will help you select every piece for your grain bucket elevator based on your needs. Give us a call today!

IBT PARTNERS WITH NAMES LIKE ESSMUELLER,  SCHLAGEL, UNIVERSAL AND CONVEYORS INC to ensure that our customers can rely on the performance of their grain applications in even the most demanding environments.

Tapco®

Polyethylene, Nylon or Urethane Style CC-HD, XD and U-HD

TapCo heavy-duty agricultural buckets handle grains, feeds, fertilizers, seeds, salt, sand, chemicals, and a variety of other free-flowing materials. Polyethylene is ideal for most applications, while nylon or urethane is recommended for highly abrasive products or extremely high throughput elevators. Order any of these styles in a “Low Profile” design to increase your grain elevator capacity.

Maxi-Lift®

TIGER-TUFF, TIGER-CC, MAXI-TUFF, CC-MAX, HD-MAX, and HD-STAX

Perfect for a high volume of materials, the high impact and abrasion-resistant Maxi-Lift elevator buckets are most commonly used in grain, fertilizers, pellets, corn, wheat, soybeans, and other agricultural and light industrial applications. With thick front lips, corners, and walls, the TIGER-TUFF is the original maximum-duty elevator bucket designed and engineered to increase bucket life, reduce breakage and corrosion, and ultimately, reduce downtime and maintenance costs. The TIGER-TUFF Low Profile option is reduced in height to allow for more buckets per foot of belt, increasing bucket elevators’ overall capacity.

4B Components Limited

CC-S, JUMBOTM CC-S® HIGH EFFICIENCYTM

These top-selling lines of 4B Ultra Heavy Duty Agricultural and Industrial Buckets are available in both in Standard and Low Profile-Style Buckets. With a unique Iceberg® Edge front lip and thick walls and corners for longer service life, these buckets are designed to deliver the maximum possible elevator leg throughput for the lowest cost per ton or bushel. Molded from virgin HDPE (nylon and urethane also available), they are intended for the most severe applications and highly abrasive materials, such as free-flowing agro-industrial materials (grains, feeds, fertilizers, and pellets).
