Pulley Lagging

All Rubber TMH pulley lagging can be done, on site, at your local premises or at the pulley manufacturer. 
Pulley lagging increases the traction between the belt and the pulley, which in turn reduces load and wear on the drive, belt, pulleys, bearings and take-up. 
For efficient and economical conveyor operation, proper pulley lagging is integral detail – one that delivers the following key benefits:

  • Extends the life of key conveyor components.
  • Reduces wear from abrasive materials.
  • Prevents belt slippage (by increasing the coefficient of friction between the conveyor belt and the pulley.)
  • Creates a self-cleaning action on the pulley surface (and prevents the buildup of transported bulk material.)

Most often, lagging is attached to the pulley via vulcanising (preferred in heavy-duty applications). Or, replaceable lagging can be used. 

Ceramic pulley lagging is constructed from hundreds of individual ceramic tiles molded into a durable rubber backing. In certain applications, ceramic lagging can significantly increase drive traction.
