How to Judge the Wear Resistance Performance of Pulley Rubber Lagging

October 15th, 2019

Inside a conveyor system’s mechanical innards, wear fatigue issues plague hard-worked power transmission assemblies. Would it then surprise you to know that similar issues take place on the deck of the equipment? With the tensioned belt representing an unstoppable force and the pulley mounts performing as unmovable machine parts, it’s the drum lagging that suffers. … Continue reading How to Judge the Wear Resistance Performance of Pulley Rubber Lagging

Popular Conveyor Design Trends for 2019

October 6th, 2019

Technological developments are always in the air. In conveyor systems, the gear is always evolving, always improving. Granted, new design trends may only appear in a handful of higher-level manufacturing plants at first, but the technology eventually finds its way into all conveyor equipment. Considering this fact, why not take a break? Instead of determining … Continue reading Popular Conveyor Design Trends for 2019

What are Troughing Idlers for?

September 17th, 2019

Troughing idlers are used to impart mining conveyor systems with a U-shaped material-handling profile. When a belt sits on a series of troughing fittings, it takes on a long, scoop-like outline. And what’s the reason for adding this shape to a conveyor ribbon? Well, it won’t do any good as a large object carrier. In … Continue reading What are Troughing Idlers for?

Understanding Self-Cleaning Pulleys: How Do They Really Work?

September 2nd, 2019

Since conveyor systems transmit kinetic energy through their spinning pulleys, maybe their rotational energy can be redirected? At the very least, a sharable power providing mechanism should divert a small portion of the energy. Used to clean the pulleys, to get rid of drum build-up, this self-cleaning attribute is generally viewed as an auxiliary equipment … Continue reading Understanding Self-Cleaning Pulleys: How Do They Really Work?

The Importance of Meeting the Minimum Run-out Tolerance for Conveyor Idlers

August 19th, 2019

Run-out problems materialize when rotating pulleys aren’t producing true circular motion. On applying a troubleshooting routine, a bent shaft could be introducing an elliptical error to a pulley drum. Alternatively, a radially eccentric coupling might be corrupting a pulley’s normally symmetrical spin. One part of the pulley is “running out” of true. Cleary, with spin … Continue reading The Importance of Meeting the Minimum Run-out Tolerance for Conveyor Idlers
