Pulley Lagging is essential to improve the performance of conveyor belt. It helps reduce the belt slippage, improves tracking and increases life of the belt bearing and also other components. Pulley is located at the discharge terminus of the conveyor. It provides the driving force for the conveyor.
P.R.I can supply pulleys with hot vulcanized rubber lagging, plain or grooved, as required by client. Different patterns of grooving such as herringbone or diamond can be provided to increase tractive friction under dirty or wet conditions. Diamond grooves have the advantage of being installed in any orientation, regardless of belt direction.
P.R.I’s Ceramic Lagging of Pulley is especially suited for pulleys with slippage and excessive wear and tear problems which make the normal rubber lagging less effective. Ceramic pulley lagging is widely used on the drive pulleys and also could be used on snub, bend and tail pulleys. Ceramic lagging has many positive attributes. The reasons to apply ceramic lagging for driven or non-drive pulleys are various like, to increase friction between the belt and drive pulley lagging in wet or variable conditions, to eliminate bodily slip between the belt and drive pulley and to eliminate lagging wear for driven or non-drive pulleys.
