The head pulley is located at the discharge point of the belt conveyor. It usually drives the conveyor and often has a larger diameter than other pulleys. For better traction, the head pulley is usually lagged (with either rubber or ceramic lagging material).
A conveyor head pulley is used for the purpose of driving a conveyor belt. Normally mounted in external type bearings and driven by a motor and reducer.
Conveyor head pulley is the main part of belt conveyor to transmit power. It is widely used in metallurgy, mining, transportation, Cement, construction, chemical, building, materials, light industry, petroleum, printing, dyeing and textile etc.
Conveyor head pulleys can be flat faced or crowned and many have lagging to reduce belt slippage. Conveyor drum pulleys, wing pulleys and spiral pulleys are the most common style of drive pulleys.
1. The head pulley is welded by steel plate, and using rolling bearings.
2. The surface of head pulley includes three type: smooth, plastic and cast plastic. Usually the smooth pulley can be used on condition that the power is not big, and the the ambient temperature is low. The plastic surface pulley should be used when it is easy to slip.
3. The quality of cast plastic head pulley is better. Because the external surface layer is wear-resistant. The packed plastic drum can achieve the same performance. It's easy to replace rubber surface , easy to maintain.And it's also be considered affordable and durable.
