For close to 60 years, Continental Conveyor Ltd. has supplied world-class industrial material-handling solutions. The broad portfolio includes such vital components as belt-conveyor pulleys. A key advantage of collaborating with the Continental team is its unmatched skill in designing and manufacturing custom belt-conveyor pulleys that meet virtual any customer need.
While these pulleys are available in several standard drum-style models, the company also offers customized modifications to accommodate unique applications.
Lagged, spiral, or special
One way that the company customizes its belt-conveyor pulleys is with lagging, which is primarily used in environments that require raising the tractive capacity in drive applications or for resisting abrasive conditions in other scenarios. Through a vulcanizing process, vulcanized rubber lagging with no cloth fabric is applied directly to the pulley face, which leaves a cloth impression on the finished rubber surface. Machined lagged pulleys are recommended for tasks that need exact tolerances.
Another option for custom belt-conveyor pulleys is herringbone rubber lagging, used to boost the tractive capacity of a pulley under wet or dirty conditions in which plain lagging is insufficient. The herringbone design stops buildup of foreign materials between the belt and pulley surface, reducing belt wear and minimizing misalignment. Continental can bond a quality rubber lagging directly to special traction pads fitted to the pulley rim by special retaining bars.
