Conveyor Pulley

Conveyor Pulley - Drum & Wing Pulley for Belt Conveyor

Belt Conveyor Pulleys are one of the most versatile components of a conveyor system. Depending on their specifications, they can serve in a variety of roles or positions, including drive or head, return or tail, bend tensioning, snub tensioning and/or take-up pulleys. You can get Drum Pulleys and Wing Pulleys for belt conveyors here!

  • Motorized Pulley

    Belt Conveyor Motorized Pulley is a type of belt conveyor driving units. The motorized pulleys need small space for driving systems.

  • Bend Pulley

    The Belt Conveyor Bend Pulley is frequently used as tail pulley, take-up pulley, and snub pulley to change the belt running direction.

  • Drive Pulley

    Drive pulleys, which can also be the head pulley, are driven by a motor and power transmission unit to propel the belt.

  • Lagged Pulley

    The lagged pulley can be head pulley, tail pulley, take-up pulley, bend pulley, etc. We provide rubber and ceramic lagged pulleys.

  • Take Up Pulley

    A take-up pulley is used to provide the belt with the proper amount of conveyor belt tension. Its position is adjustable.

  • Snub Pulley

    A snub pulley improves the traction of the drive pulley by increasing its belt wrap angle. We offer lagged conveyor snub pulleys.

  • Wing Pulley

    The wing pulley also known as self-cleaning pulleys, and wing pulleys are primarily used on the tail end of bulk handling systems.

  • Tail Pulley

    The conveyor tail pulley is located at the loading end of the belt. It comes with either a flat face or a slatted profile (wing pulley).

  • Head Pulley

    The head pulley is located at the discharge point. It usually drives the belt and often has a larger diameter than other pulleys.

A conveyor pulley is more heavy-duty than a roller and is used at either end of a conveyor, or near the drive/motor. A conveyor will always consist of at least two pulleys, head pulley and tail pulley, with additional pulleys used depending on the configuration. Standard-duty pulleys are usually adequate for simple applications, but mine-duty and engineered pulleys are also available where heavy-duty pulleys are required. The conveyor drun pulleys are the most commonly used.

Lagging of Conveyor Pulleys

The function of conveyor pulley lagging is to increase friction with the conveyor belt while protecting the shell from damage. There are several types of pulley lagging, including rubber and ceramic lagging. Depending on your specific application requirements, we offer a variety of sizes and lagging options from leading suppliers. We carry a stock of different lagging materials, including ceramic, diamond, smooth, and herringbone or chevron textures. We work directly with our customers to find the conveyor pulley that will fit their unique application.

Rubber Lagging

1. Plain Rubber Lagging for non-drive pulleys to provide better traction.
2. Diamond/Herringbone/Chevron Grooved Rubber Lagging is ideal for pulleys that require more friction on the conveyor belt.

Ceramic Lagging

1. Dimple Ceramic Lagging – The dimples press into the belt, assisting in driving the conveyor efficiently.
2. Smooth Ceramic Lagging is typically used with non-drive pulleys and offers a middle ground between dimple ceramic lagging and rubber lagging.

The Way to Choose Conveyor Pulleys

STEP1: Determine the Face Length of the Conveyor Pulley.
STEP2: Determine the Anticipated Belt Tension of the Conveyor System.
STEP3: Determine the Outer Diameter and Shaft Diameter of the Conveyor Pulley.
STEP4: Determine the Style of Hub Connection.
STEP5: Determine the Pulley Configuration.
STEP6: Determine the Profile of the Pulley Face.
STEP7: Determine the Appropriate Component Materials.
STEP8: Determine the Type of Contact Surface Required.
STEP9: Other Important Specifications to Consider.

Applications of Conveyor Pulleys

SKE produces pulleys for all conveyor applications. From the Pro Duty to the Herringbone wing, we have the product material handlers need to keep conveyor systems running.

1. Pulleys for Heavy Duty
2. Pulleys for Mine Duty
3. Engineering Class Drum Pulley

A conveyor pulley is a mechanical device similar to a conveyor roller that is used to change the direction of the belt in a conveyor system or to drive the belt or to put tension on the belt. Are you looking for conveyor pulleys? You can send your detail requirement.
