The device requires no drilling or tapping of tail pulley
shaft; is shielded between top and bottom of conveyor belt; and, can be placed anywhere on the conveyor belt.--Conveyor Components Co., Croswell, Mich., 800/233-3233; www.conveyorcomponents.com
Blade" program, technicians perform regularly-scheduled inspections and adjustments, with an 18-point operational assessment from head pulley to tail pulley
and a report for each visit.
To illustrate this, consider the comparison of two identical bearings in a conveyor belt application, on opposite sides of a tail pulley
Belt velocity is measured from the tail pulley
rather than the drive motor, providing a direct measurement of belt speed; this improves both measurement and control of material.
The tail pulley
mounting permits rapid de-tensioning to free the belt for removal.
Skimmer use consists of lowering the belt and tail pulley
into the casing until the pulley is fully immersed, placing the discharge hose in a container and switching it on.
mounting also provides rapid de-tensioning to easily free the belt.
Deflector Belt Plows work as belt cleaners for the tail pulley
. Offered in V and diagonal models, both mounted on top of the return side of the belt in flout of the tail pulley
, Deflector Plows prevent lumps, fines, and debris from jamming between the belt and tail pulley
The ACCUSTAR's flip-up tail pulley
makes cleaning and maintenance easy while its fiber optic photo eye permits simple installation and replacement.
An inverted V return idler was installed at the tail station to control misalignment before the belt wrapped onto the tail pulley
