The shell is fabricated from either belt conveyor pulleys rolled sheet of steel or from hollow steel tubing. The shell has a specific 'face' width and belt conveyor pulleys which is determined by the width of the belting and the type and rating of the belt to be used on the conveyor.

Diaphragm Plates The diaphragm or end plates of a pulley are circular discs which are fabricated from thick steel plate and which are welded into the shell at each end, to strengthen the drum.

The end plates are bored in their centre to accommodate the pulley shaft and the hubs for the pulley locking elements.

The shaft is located and locked to the hubs of the end discs by means of a locking elements. The shaft is supported on both ends belt conveyor pulleys bearings which are housed in plummer blocks, to support the shaft and belt conveyor pulleys assembly on the conveyor structure.

Shafts often comprise different diameters along their length due to the bending moments and resultant deflection limitations.


The diameter of the shaft at the landings for the bearings may be smaller to satisfy the necessary bearing diameter which is more cost-effective smaller. Similarly in the case of a drive shaft, the drive attachment, may be different to the other belt conveyor pulleys along belt conveyor pulleys shaft and hence pulley shafts are often stepped.

Drum Pulleys -

Locking Elements These are high-precision manufactured items which are fitted over the shaft and into the pulley hubs.

The locking elements attach the pulley firmly to the shaft via belt conveyor pulleys end plates. Locking elements see adjacent image work on the friction-grip principle whereby the element is able to be fastened to the shaft and hub simultaneously and concentrically, by tightening a series of screws around the locking element.

Hubs The hubs are fabricated and machined housings which are welded belt conveyor pulleys the end plates.


The hubs are sized belt conveyor pulleys to the size of the pulley, the diameter of the shaft and the size of the locking element which is required for the specific duty. Lagging Belt conveyor pulleys is sometimes necessary or desirable to improve the friction between the conveyor belt and the pulley in order to improve the torque that can be transmitted through a drive pulley.

Improved traction over a pulley also assists with the training of the belt.

In such cases pulley drum surfaces are 'lagged' or covered in a rubberized material. This cover is usually 8 belt conveyor pulleys to 12 mm thick and can be plain or have a grooved pattern. It provides the driving force for the conveyor.

In order to increase pulley life and traction, it often has a larger diameter than other pulleys.

Jagruti can supply pulleys with hot vulcanized rubber lagging, plain or belt conveyor pulleys, as required by client. Different patterns of grooving such as herringbone or diamond can be provided to increase tractive friction under dirty or wet conditions.

Diamond grooves have the advantage of being installed in any orientation, regardless of belt direction.
