Applications

Drum and wing pulleys are ideal for bulk handling applications where material build-up can impact the life and performance of the conveyor system. In a conventional drum pulley, material build-up is common and is the leading cause of damage to the conveyor belt, reduced belt life, and costly downtime. Drum and wing pulleys are an innovative, self-cleaning solution for welded steel conveyor pulleys that are used to move materials such as:

  • Sand
  • Grain
  • Sugar 
  • Flour
  • Coal
  • Minerals
  • Animal feed
  • Tobacco
  • Electronics
  • Metals
  • Textiles
  • And more

How a drum & wing pulley works for conveyor belt systems

Wing pulleys are designed with individual wings or ‘fins’ that maintain non-continuous contact with the belt. They sit on the tail end of the conveyor system where loose materials can slip through and collect underneath the conveyor belt. Unlike a conventional drum pulley system, the non-continuous design helps material spillage escape between the wings, providing the following benefits:

  • Reduced material build-up
  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Prevents premature wear and tear
  • Minimizes repairs and parts replacement
  • Extends the life of the entire conveyor belt system
  • Improved belt traction
  • Improved belt performance and productivity
