An Example of Advanced Engineering for Bucket Elevators
In a system as large and complex as a granary operation, every component matters. Components like bucket elevators operate 24/7, which means a single stop in motion means a stop in production and costly downtime.
When the Helical Works team provides engineering services, we’re not just looking at the cost of the component. We also have to consider how that component will stand up to extended use without failing. Wear and tear is the single biggest cause of downtime in industrial and commercial applications.
To minimize downtime for any clients we work with, our engineers spend time looking at the component in the context of the complex system, environment, and business it belongs to. Alignment, speed, motion, and outside factors such as temperature and moisture can all impact how a bucket elevator – or any helical product – performs over time. We take the time to provide assessments and concerns ahead of time to prevent delays in the manufacturing and installation process.
