4B has invested in tooling to increase the capacity of its Starco steel elevator buckets. The elevator buckets are designed to provide perfect fill and discharge for a range of products and operate at a wide speed range of up to 4.55m/sec.

4B is able to provide test results and field evidence to illustrate the differences between different elevator bucket models.

The company has carried out tests to compare its Starco buckets with its competitors’ products and found that many buckets have a lower capacity than is claimed on paper.

The quality of the bucket can also be very different, depending on the production process and quality of steel used.
