C1020 and C1045 Shaft Material Difference for PulleysMay 15th, 2019
Conveyor shafts are viewed as process-essential pulley backbones. They’re the hard but ductile cylindrical cores that absorb impact while keeping their loads moving. Frankly, these key system components sometimes experience unmanageable amounts of back-breaking kinetic energy. Because of that fact, lesser shaft alloys cannot endure for long. Only resilient, carbon-strengthened steel can survive here, and … Continue reading C1020 and C1045 Shaft Material Difference for Pulleys
Conveyor Pulley Rubber Lagging and Its Benefits to Conveyor PulleysMay 2nd, 2019
Rubber pulley lagging serves several different roles. There’s the obvious reason for the blanketing layer, the need to protect the cylindrical drums from heavy impacts. Next, apart from the loading challenges, there’s the traction issue to work out. Lagging, fixed to a pulley drum’s surface, should grip its load-transporting ribbon. With some satisfaction, two performance … Continue reading Conveyor Pulley Rubber Lagging and Its Benefits to Conveyor Pulleys
Conveyor Spillage and the Problems it Might Cause to Conveyor ComponentsApril 16th, 2019
Make no mistake, conveyor systems can fail when they’re assaulted by fluid leakages. In all likelihood, the spillage won’t have any impact on the material carrying belt. It’s made of waterproof rubber or plastic or some kind of corrosion-resistant stainless steel. For the parts running under the belt, it’s a different story. The pulleys won’t … Continue reading Conveyor Spillage and the Problems it Might Cause to Conveyor Components
Important Guidelines in Conveyor Pulley SelectionApril 7th, 2019
Conveyor pulley selection guidelines function sort of like a glue. Only, this glue exists to holds a delicately balanced moving framework together. Those function coordinating powers, they’re what creates the necessary system inter-relationships and performance-tuned behaviours in a large-scale conveyor system. As those key features take their place, the gear functions more reliably so that … Continue reading Important Guidelines in Conveyor Pulley Selection
How does an Undersized Shaft Contribute to a Conveyor Pulley Failure?March 25th, 2019
While conducting a failure analysis study, a conveyor pulley problem received some interesting, and disconcerting, root-cause data. The causative factor didn’t suggest any issues with the pulley mounts or ends caps, nor was the cylindrical cladding on the verge of collapsing. On the contrary, it was the hardened core, the cylinder shaft that was responsible … Continue reading How does an Undersized Shaft Contribute to a Conveyor Pulley Failure?
