Product Description

Conveyor Pulley is manufactured as per customer requirement,with main design under national standard,quality inspection focusing on shaft core,welded joint,rubber material and hardness,dynamic balance and so on for longer product life time.

Drive/Head Pulley – A conveyor pulley used for the purpose of driving a conveyor belt. Typically mounted in external bearings and driven by an external drive source.
Return/Tail Pulley – A conveyor pulley used for the purpose of redirecting a conveyor belt back to the drive pulley. Tail pulleys can utilize internal bearings or can be mounted in external bearings and are typically located at the end of the conveyor bed. Tail pulleys commonly serve the purpose of a Take-Up pulley on conveyors of shorter lengths.
Snub Pulley – A conveyor pulley used to increase belt wrap around a drive pulley, typically for the purpose of improving traction.
Take-Up Pulley – A conveyor pulley used to remove slack and provide tension to a conveyor belt. Take-Up pulleys are more common to conveyors of longer lengths.
Bend Pulley – A conveyor pulley used to redirect the belt and provide belt tension where bends occur in the conveyor system.

The specification of pulley:
Drive Drum: is the main component of power transmission. The drum can be divided into single drum (the angle of the belt to the drum is 210 ° ~ 230 °) , Double Drum (the angle of the belt to the drum is up to 350 °) and
multi-drum (used for high power) . 
Bend Drum: is used for changing the running direction of the conveyor belt or increasing the surrounding angle of the conveyor belt on the driving roller, and the roller adopts a smooth rubber surface . The drum shaft shall be forgings and shall be nondestructive tested and the inspection report shall be provided. 
The Various Surface of Pulley:
Conveyor pulley lagging is essential to improve conveyor belt performance, the combination of our pulley lagging can reduces belt slippage, improve tracking and extends life of belt, bearing & other components.

PLAIN LAGGING:This style of finish is suitable for any pulley in the conveyor system where watershed is not necessary. It provides additional protection against belt wear, therefore, increasing the life of the pulley.
DIAMOND GROOVE LAGGING:This is the standard pattern on all Specdrum lagged conveyor pulleys. It is primarily used for reversing conveyor drive pulleys. It is also often used to allow bi-directional pulley rotation, and the pattern allows water to be dispersed away from the belt.
HERRINGBONE LAGGING:The herringbone pattern’s grooves are in the direction of rotation, and offers superior tractive properties. Each groove allows water and other liquids to escape between the face of the drum pulley and the belt. Herringbone grooved pulleys are directional and should be applied to the conveyor in a manner in which the grooves point toward the direction of the belt travel.
CHEVRON LAGGING:Some customers specify that the points of the groove should meet – as done in Chevron styled lagging. As before with the herringbone style, this would be used on drive drum pulleys and should be fitted in the correct manner, so as to allow proper use of the pattern and water dispersion also.
CERAMIC LAGGING:The Ceramic tiles are moulded into the lagging which is then cold bonded to the drum pulley. This style of finish allows excellent traction and reduces slippage, meaning that the belt tension is lower and, therefore as a result, increases the life of the pulley.
WELD-ON STRIP LAGGING: Weld-On Strip Lagging can be applied to bi-directional pulleys, and also has a finish to allow the easy dispersion of water or any fluids between the drum pulley and the belt.

The Components of Pulley:

1. Drum or Shell:The drum is the portion of the pulley in direct contact with the belt. The shell is fabricated from either a rolled sheet of steel or from hollow steel tubing.
2.Diaphragm Plates: The diaphragm or end plates of a pulley are circular discs which are fabricated from thick steel plate and which are welded into the shell at each end, to strengthen the drum.The end plates are bored in their centre to accommodate the pulley Shaft and the hubs for the pulley locking elements.
3.Shaft :The shaft is designed to accommodate all the applied forces from the belt and / or the drive unit, with minimum deflection. The shaft is located and locked to the hubs of the end discs by means of a locking elements. The shaft and hence pulley shafts are often stepped.
4.Locking Elements:These are high-precision manufactured items which are fitted over the shaft and into the pulley hubs. The locking elements attach the pulley firmly to the shaft via the end plates.
5.Hubs:The hubs are fabricated and machined housings which are welded into the end plates.
6.LaggingIt is sometimes necessary or desirable to improve the friction between the conveyor belt and the pulley in order to improve the torque that can be transmitted through a drive pulley. Improved traction over a pulley also assists with the training of the belt. In such cases pulley drum surfaces are `lagged` or covered in a rubberized material.
7.Bearing: Bearings used for conveyor pulleys are generally spherical roller bearings, chosen for their radial and axial load supporting characteristics. The bearings are self-aligning relative to their raceways, which means that the bearings can be ‘misaligned’ relative to the shaft and plummer blocks, to a certain degree. In practical terms this implies that the bending of the shaft under loaded conditions as well as minor misalignment of the pulley support structure, can be accommodated by the bearing.

Mechanical advantages of pulleys

A pulley is a mechanical device used to transmit motion. The device has a variety of uses, including lifting heavy objects. In this article, we will discuss the mechanical advantages, types, common uses and safety considerations of pulleys. We’ll also discuss how to identify pulleys and their components, and what to look out for when using pulleys. Read on to learn more about pulleys.

Mechanical advantages of pulleys

The mechanical advantage of pulleys is that they change the direction of force from one direction to another. In this way, the person lifting the heavy object can change its position with minimal effort. The pulleys are also easy to install and require no lubrication after installation. They are also relatively cheap. Combinations of pulleys and cables can be used to change the direction of the load.
The mechanical advantage of a pulley system increases with the number of ropes used in the system. The more cycles a system has, the more efficient it is. If the system had only one rope, the force required to pull the weight would be equal. By adding a second rope, the effort required to pull the weight is reduced. This increase in efficiency is known as the mechanical advantage of the pulley.
Pulleys have many uses. For example, ziplines are one application. This is a good example of pulleys in use today. Pulley systems can be complex and require a lot of space. Using ziplines as an example, advanced students can calculate the mechanical advantage of multiple pulleys by dividing the work done by each pulley by the remainder or fraction. Regents at the University of Colorado created a zipline with K-12 input.
Another use for pulleys is weight lifting. This technique is very effective when using multiple strands of rope. A single rope going from one pulley to the other with just two hands is not enough to lift heavy objects. Using a pulley system will greatly increase the force you receive. This power is multiplied over a larger area. So your lifting force will be much greater than the force exerted by a single rope.
The pulley is a great invention with many uses. For example, when lifting heavy objects, pulleys are a great way to get the job done, and it’s easier to do than one person. The pulley is fixed on a hinge and rotates on a shaft or shaft. Then pull the rope down to lift the object. A pulley assembly will make the task easier. In addition, it will also allow power to be transferred from one rotary shaft to another.

Types of pulleys

If you are an engineer, you must have come across different types of pulleys. Some pulleys come in multiple types, but a typical pulley has only one type. These types of pulleys are used in various industrial processes. Here are some common types of pulleys that engineers encounter on the job. In addition to the above, there are many more. If you haven’t seen them in practice, you can check out a list of the different types below.
Fixed pulleys: Fixed pulleys have a roller attached to a fixed point. The force required to pull the load through the fixed pulley is the same as the force required to lift the object. Movable pulleys allow you to change the direction of the force, for example, by moving it laterally. Likewise, movable pulleys can be used to move heavy objects up and down. Commonly used in multi-purpose elevators, cranes and weight lifters.
Composite pulleys combine fixed and movable pulleys. This combination adds to the mechanical advantage of both systems. It can also change the direction of the force, making it easier to handle large loads. This article discusses the different types of pulleys used for lifting and moving. Braided pulleys are an example of these pulleys. They combine the advantages of both types.
A simple pulley consists of one or more wheels, which allow it to reverse the direction of the force used to lift the load. On the other hand, dual-wheel pulleys can help lift twice the weight. By combining multiple materials into one pulley, a higher ME will be required. Regardless of the type of pulley, understanding the principles behind it is critical.
Pulleys are an important part of construction and mechanical engineering, and their use dates back to Archimedes. They are a common feature of oil derricks and escalators. The main use of pulleys is to move heavy objects such as boats. In addition to this, they are used in other applications such as extending ladders and lifting heavy objects. The pulley also controls the aircraft rudder, which is important in many different applications.

Commonly used

Common uses for pulleys are varied. Pulley systems are found throughout most areas of the house, from adjustable clotheslines to motor pulleys in different machines. Commercially, one of the most common uses is for cranes. Cranes are equipped with pulleys to lift heavy objects. It is also common to use pulley systems in tall buildings, which allow tall buildings to move with relative ease.
Pulleys are commonly used in interception and zipline systems, where a continuous rope around the pulley transmits force. Depending on the application, the rope is either light or strong. Pulleys are formed by wrapping a rope around a set of wheels. The rope pulls the object in the direction of the applied force. Some elevators use this system. Pull a cable on one end and attach a counterweight on the other end.
Another common use for pulleys is to move heavy objects. Pulleys mounted on walls, ceilings or other objects can lift heavy objects like heavy toolboxes or 2×4 planks. The device can also be used to transfer power from one rotating shaft to another. When used to lift heavy objects, pulleys can be used to help you achieve your goals of a good workout.
Pulley systems have a variety of uses, from the most basic to the most advanced. Its popularity is indisputable and it is used in different industries. A good example is timing belts. These pulleys transmit power to other components in the same direction. They can also be static or dynamic depending on the needs of the machine. In most cases, the pulley system is custom made for the job.
Pulley systems can be simple or complex, but all three systems transfer energy efficiently. In most cases, the mechanical advantage of a single pulley is 1 and the mechanical advantage of a single active pulley is 2. On the other hand, a single live pulley only doubles the force. This means you can trade effort for distance. Pulleys are the perfect solution for many common applications.

Safety Notice

If you use pulleys, you need to take some safety precautions. First, make sure you’re wearing the correct protective gear. A hard hat is a must to avoid being hit by falling objects. You may also want to wear gloves for added protection. You should also maintain a good distance from the pulley so that nearby people can walk around it safely.
Another important safety measure to take before using a chain hoist is to barricade the area to be lifted. Use marker lines to prevent the load from sliding when moving horizontally. Finally, use only the sprocket set for vertical lift. Always install shackle pins before lifting. You should also wear personal protective equipment such as earplugs and safety glasses when using the chain hoist.
In addition to these safety measures, you should also use cables made from aerospace-grade nylon. They will last many cycles and are made of high quality materials. Also, make sure the cables are lubricated. These measures reduce friction and corrosion. No matter what industry you are in, be sure to follow these precautions to ensure a long service life for your cables. Consult the cable manufacturer if you are unsure of the appropriate material. A company with 60 years of experience in the cable industry can recommend the right material for your system.
