Continental can custom-design pulleys easily.

Continental Conveyor Ltd. has supplied world-class material-handling solutions for decades. Its wide portfolio includes vital components like belt conveyor pulleys. A major benefit of working with the Continental crew is its considerable ability to design and fabricate custom belt conveyor pulleys that meet almost any client need. Offering these pulleys in several standard drum-style models, the company also offers customized modifications to comply with individual applications.

Drum and wing options

One way that Continental customizes its belt conveyor pulleys is with lagging, which is used mainly in environments that require raising the tractive capacity in drive applications or for resisting abrasive conditions in other tasks. Through a vulcanizing process, vulcanized rubber lagging without 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 applications requiring exact tolerances.

Herringbone rubber lagging is another option for custom belt conveyor pulleys, used to boost the tractive capacity of a pulley under wet or dirty conditions in which plain lagging is insufficient. The herringbone design prevents buildup of foreign materials between the belt and pulley surface, lowering belt wearing and minimizing misalignment. Continental can bond a quality rubber lagging directly to special traction pads fitted to the pulley rim by special retaining bars.

Among the models of custom belt conveyor pulleys available:

  • Lagged wing pulleys – recommended for tasks involving material buildup between the conveyor belt and pulley, leading to belt misalignment and wear.
  • Spiral drum pulleys – a unique design that minimizes belt wear and misalignment. Rotation automatically begins a self-cleaning action, discharging foreign materials to the conveyor sides.
  • Special drum-type pulleys – special modifications available to standard pulleys to suit unique needs, like adding retaining rims to ensure alignment.
  • Special self-cleaning pulleys – When pulleys come in contact with acidic baths, they can adopt an entire stainless steel construction or an entirely open design.
  • Spiral wing pulleys – used in conditions needing reduction of material buildup between pulley and belt, while using the wing principle of the self-cleaning pulley.
