HEKO bucket guide discs are manufactured from carbon steel and are bolted to the outward facing side of the chain wheel. Bucket guide discs are usually fitted to return idling wheels in the elevator boot to restrict bucket movement, usually in applications where side forces on the buckets are expected. Such guide discs are an alternative to fixed guide rails attached to the side wall of the boot. We recommend that elevator inlets are designed to centralise the feed into the bucket. Guide discs may be retrofitted to existing cast or steel wheels.
