HVH Bucket Conveyors.


SHAPE HVH Bucket Conveyors are manufactured under license in Thailand based on a proven design from Australia. The units are designed to handle fragile or delicate products gently, day in, day out and are easily adapted to suit your application, layout and product requirements.


Typically ideal for delicate and/or hygiene sensitive products such as:

  • Dry & Snack Foods - i.e. Biscuits, Cereal, Coffee, Confectionary, Nuts, Pasta, Potato Chips.
  • Dry or semi dry products - i.e. Rice.
  • Granulated Products - i.e. Sugar.
  • Dry Pet Food.
  • Wet Products - i.e. Prawns, Fish, Shell Fish.


Use a standard 'Z' unit for a gentle and simple lift. A Carousel design will allow a 'C' shape conveyor and/or multiple discharge points. Use a 'Deep Head' HVH Bucket Conveyor for multiple discharge points, ideal for distribution of products to filling stations or to replace drag chain systems.


All product contact parts are available in FDA approved materials. The product is transferred using FDA approved plastic buckets which are manufactured exclusively for our machines by injection molding. The design of these buckets is such that they are very light and flexible.


All elevators are constructed from heavy duty RHS (Rolled Hollow Section) which is the most essential element for the ultimate reliability and life of an elevator. Our frame is effectively a structure - it needs limited structural support, limits twist and vibration and is the key to reliability and a long service life. The frame can be painted, galvanised or stainless to your specifications


The open frame design allows for easy sighting of the operation, easy cleaning and access if required. With an enclosed frame design it's what you can't see that could be a big problem.


Shafts & Sprockets are used at each corner where the chain (and buckets) changes direction. Chain is an expensive item and so sprockets are essential in assuring maximum chain life with minimal stress and stretch. In addition, fines generation from chain wear is eliminated.


Full length chain guides ensure that the chain is held is position through its entire cycle. There is no whip or chance for buckets to move and pop out. Full length chain guides are essential to ensure a reliable, quiet and smooth operation


Dust explosion prevention or protection may be required on systems handling dry powder or granular materials. To operate without proper explosion venting may result in fire or explosion. check local industrial codes and policies or consult SHAPE.
