The Importance of Preventive Maintenance in Conveyor Pulleys

Blog | December 14th, 2015

Keep conveyor belts moving by implementing a coordinated approach to system support, a mechanical upkeep strategy that extends the lifespan of your conveyor pulleys. Competent working practices take the form of a first-class preventative maintenance strategy, a standard means of periodically checking system components during a normal operational state, so as to instigate a powerful … Continue reading The Importance of Preventive Maintenance in Conveyor Pulleys

The Importance of Engineering and Dimensions in Conveyor Pulleys

Blog | December 2nd, 2015

A smoothly operating conveyor system is a thing of engineered beauty. Take away this fluid movement and you risk ending this harmonious arrangement. The chain of energy transmission becomes unstable. Uneven wear patterns develop. The conveyor pulleys suffer. Performance is compromised, and this distressing scene undermines the reliability of the equipment. Balance is lost, to … Continue reading The Importance of Engineering and Dimensions in Conveyor Pulleys

What is Lagging in Conveyor Pulleys and How Does It Work?

Blog | November 16th, 2015

If you’re a heating engineer, then lagging is the insulating material that covers pipes and boilers. Alternatively, if you’re an engineer with pulley know-how and conveyor expertise, then the term describes a completely different component asset. It’s funny how a simple switch of professions can so alter the context of a single word. Anyway, when … Continue reading What is Lagging in Conveyor Pulleys and How Does It Work?

What Is An Idler Pulley?

Blog | November 6th, 2015

An idler pulley is as important as any other component, in the grand order of things. It doesn’t generate energy or rotate parts, so it perhaps doesn’t belong in the same family as drive pulleys, but the part still possesses a pivotal role.

The Significance of Bearing Housings in Conveyor Pulleys

Blog | October 28th, 2015

Speed and load calculations define the theoretical limits of conveyor systems. Rollers use these figures, converting radial motion into belt-driven linear momentum. In an ideal world this efficient transfer of energy would drive pulleys, the roller would push the conveyor belt, and the system would mesh to effortlessly deliver heavy loads.

Applications of Shaft Locks in Conveyor Pulleys

Blog | October 8th, 2015

Conveyor pulleys transmit motorized power into long belts, acting as the origin of the workhorse momentum that drives the system. The dynamic force encountered on the belt and is challenging at the best of times, but starting inertia is slowly overcome until the equipment is spinning merrily.

The Importance of Timing and Accuracy in Conveyor Pulleys

Blog | September 28th, 2015

An industrial conveyor system such as that used in mines and quarries, move quarried rocks and mined aggregate along conveyor belts supported on rollers from the seam to the surface. Conveyor pulleys and high-HP motors are positioned along the belt to move the material to the surface. Load chutes and discharge buckets at either end … Continue reading The Importance of Timing and Accuracy in Conveyor Pulleys

What Are the Different Types of Pulleys?

Blog | September 15th, 2015

Pulleys are wheels on an axle with a grooved rim around the outer edge where a belt, rope or chain passes. The wheel supports the movement of the belt or cable along the perimeter of the wheel. It is a simple device designed to lift loads, transmit power or apply force. Although there are numerous … Continue reading What Are the Different Types of Pulleys?

Introduction to Conveyor Pulleys

Blog | August 14th, 2015

As long as a conveyor system performs as it’s meant to, it goes unnoticed, which is a tad ironic considering the importance of this equipment within a business venture’s production chain. It’s only when the mechanism stutters to a halt that we give the apparatus the credit it deserves.
