To figure the capacity of a bucket elevator you must first know the following: 1. CAPACITY of the bucket at water level (cubic inches). 4. SPEED of the belt or chain (feet per minute). See formula below. 2. SPACING of the buckets on the belt or chain (centers). 5. PRODUCT WEIGHT per cubic foot (only if answer is desired in tons or metric tons). 3
