Wing pulleys are an ideal alternative to conventional drum pulleys for environments that experience excessive material build-up. Helix Wing Pulleys provide a unique design that allows for constant belt contact with open voids to expel and dislodge material. This leads to better traction, reduced abrasion on the belt and pulley, and a quieter operation.Let’s take […]
If your conveyor system’s impact idlers are experiencing excessive wear, consider impact beds as a solution. Conveyor belt manufacturers recommend impact beds when designing a conveyor system. They can fit virtually any position and are a cost-effective way to minimize damage.In this article, we focus on the role of impact beds and how they can […]
Though simple in design, pulleys are an important system for many industries due to their ability to operate in various challenging environments. A conveyor pulley consists of a structure, such as a drum, that is fixed to the shaft by means of locking mechanisms and the shaft is then mounted on to bearings. Although the […]
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. Each specific type of pulley lagging has different specifications and purposes which we go into more detail in this article. The ideal type […]
An idler is used in many applications, including material handling processes and to improve belt drive performance. Conveyor belt idlers are crucial to the conveying process because they support the belt and conveyor along its full length to prevent stretching, tears, and corrosion.
Conveyor systems operate in heavy-duty and harsh environments that are tough on its mechanics. The role of impact and slider beds on conveyor systems is to assist the belt and structure to absorb the impact of falling material. They are designed to absorb shock with a strong support frame that can handle the toughest of […]
The industrial equipment that utilizes pulleys and belts to transmit power goes through a heavy volume of work daily. This highlights the importance of pulley repair services and preventative maintenance to keep your equipment running at an optimal level.
A pulley is a wheel on an axle or shaft that is designed to support movement and redirect tension. They are simple, yet powerful devices that can make small forces move large objects. Pulleys are used to make heavy work more manageable.
