Maintenance Tips for Prolonging Conveyor Pulley Lifespan

The team at H.E.M.E specialise in conveyor pulley fabrication, assisting mining companies around Australia with their machining and fabrication needs. While these serve an important purpose in the industry, challenges can arise and our team has developed a deep understanding of how to combat issues including debonding from the shell, end edge lifting and separation between lagging strips. When it comes to handling conveyor pulleys, here is how you can maintain and inspect your equipment to prolong its lifespan.

Avoiding Deterioration

Deterioration is a common problem across most equipment, especially if left unused. When pulleys are held in storage for long periods, you run the risk of the material deteriorating. The H.E.M.E team has an array of mining solutions, including a combined pulley cradle and all-weather cover to protect your conveyor pulley. The cover is appropriate for both indoor and outdoor use, ideal for Australian mining sites and includes ventilation and hinged sides for optimal use. To avoid deterioration and prolong the life of your conveyor pulley, consider our combined cradle and all-weather cover.

Hot Vulcanised vs Cold Bond Lagging

Hot vulcanised pulley lagging and cold bond lagging both offer suitable lagging options for pulleys. Hot vulcanised lagging can be beneficial if pulleys are stored in corrosive conditions for longer periods, providing a better level of adhesion between the pulley shell and lagging. Alternatively, cold bond lagging is a cost effective and convenient option involving rubber lagging glued directly onto the steel pulley. The lagging method most suitable to you will depend on location, adhesive strengths and the needs of your mine site.
