Gough Econ is the only licensed global manufacturer of the Elecon, the world’s only bucket conveyor that can move materials in any direction.  No other conveying system in the world is as flexible as the Elecon. In addition to the typical vertical and horizontal movement, the Elecon bucket can make right or left turns. This multi-axis capability is a result of its patented chain design and wedge-shaped buckets. Dubbed as the “go anywhere” conveyor, the Elecon minimizes your system’s footprint and can handle virtually any circuit design imaginable.

The Elecon is one of our best known and most versatile bucket elevator designs—and we are pleased with how it helps clients increase their operational effectiveness. No matter what configuration you need, these bucket elevators are engineered to provide solid and robust components that withstand most environments.

The Econ-o-Lift bucket elevator’s robust construction is built for durability and easy installation. It features a collapsing chain and 360-degree discharge with multiple discharge and inlet feeds for maximum flexibility. This bucket elevator can also be designed for food manufacturing applications with food-grade, stainless steel, or plastic conveyor surfaces that allow your company to comply with the regulatory standards specific to your industry.

With the Econ-o-Lift, buckets remain upright throughout the circuit reducing the probability for product spills and allowing the option for multiple discharge points from the lower rung of the bucket elevator. This will help minimize breakage from product discharge drop heights.

Additionally, the buckets feature a trailing curved lip that, when interlocked with the bucket in front and behind, allows the product being introduced into the Econ-O-Lift to flow directly and cleanly into each bucket cavity.

The result is flexible equipment that handles a variety of products for many different industries.
