Olds Elevator

The Olds Elevator is a groundbreaking innovation for vertically elevating an extensive array of bulk materials. With the presence of merely one moving part, the outer rotating casing, We can confidently state that this elevator adeptly gathers and elevates materials to the designated discharge point. The unit functions with a seamless and noiseless operation, and we are proud to highlight its capability to allow an infinite range of delivery rates, adjustable from 0 to 100% of RPM. This feature truly sets it apart as an exceptionally precise metering device.

Within the rotating casing, you’ll find two pick-up scoops positioned at its base. These scoops play a pivotal role in gathering and introducing the product to the stationary screw located inside the casing. They cleverly leverage centrifugal force to maintain the product against the inner wall while additional material is steadily introduced at the base. To guarantee precise movement, adjustable guides are in place to facilitate the centralized rotation of the casing. This casing, in turn, is securely mounted on a bearing in close proximity to the drive system.

The Olds Elevator has the remarkable ability to handle a wide variety of materials. This includes substances such as foundry sand, casting sand, sugar, coal, flocculant, fertilizer, beans, rice, plastic pellets, stockfeed pellets, iron ore lump and fines, nickel concentrate, hydrated lime, quicklime, flour, wheat, cement, SMBS, CMC, as well as viscous slurries like molasses. The Olds Elevator’s capacity to manage such a diverse range of materials underscores its exceptional versatility.
