This IDEAL Bucket Elevator Manual will confine its scope to general information on a standard leg installation. The variety of leg sizes, up to 60,000 BPH , would make a single, complete, installation manual impossible to compile. In addition, the location of the leg installation such as inside a leg well, in a tower system supported alongside another structure or a guyed, free-standing system, prohibit such a manual. Further, site preparation, erecting devices such as hoists or cranes (or the lack of them), and, most importantly, a contractors experience and techniques, will necessarily limit this manual to an overview of some common approaches.
The most important consideration during the installation process is following the various manufacturers instructions for the many components that make up the bucket elevator. If the installer is unsure about any phase of the installation, please contact us for assistance. We can answer most of your questions or suggest professional services to help you complete the installation.
This manual provides installation, operation, service recommendations and replacement parts identification for IDEAL Bucket Elevators.
Each section of the manual is fully illustrated for fast, accurate reference. It is highly recommended that this manual be read thoroughly by those who are responsible for the installation, operation and maintenance of this elevator.

ASSEMBLY & INSTALLATION
All parts have been carefully checked before shipment from our factory. Carefully inspect all parts for damage that may have occurred during shipment. Look for dents in trunking sections and bent or misaligned flanges or shafts. If these are not corrected, one can expect continuing problems and reduced life of the bucket elevator.
Check to make sure that all items listed in your Packing List are included.
If damages or shortages are noted, have the transportation company's representative note this on the Bill of Lading and notify IDEAL. Locate the model and serial number on the bucket elevator drive side and reference the missing or damaged part from the Packing List. Forward this information along with the shipping date so that we may expedite the replacement parts.
IMPORTANTAll claims for shipping damages must be noted by the consignee at the time of delivery and filed with the transportation company.
UNCRATING AND INSPECTION
The lifting bracket located in the top of the head section cover is for removing cover from head section only Do not attempt to lift entire head section with this cover lifting bracket.
All electrical connections should be made by a qualified electrician. Check local codes before installation. A lockable external line disconnect switch, in compliance with local codes, must be provided and located as close as possible to the bucket elevator.
When the bucket elevator is connected with other machinery, electrical interlock priorities shouldbe maintained so that if any other equipment fails, all preceding equipment would stop.
