Thejo Australia Pty Ltd.’s pulley lagging can be done in place, on site, at your local distributor 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 coefficiency of friction between the conveyor belt and the pulley.
- Creates a self-cleaning action on the pulley surface and prevents the build-up of transported bulk material, water, snow or ice.
Most often, lagging is attached to the pulley via vulcanizing (preferred in heavy-duty applications).
Or, replaceable lagging can be used. The lagging strips are bolted or welded to the face of the pulley
and can be easily replaced in the field. 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.
We supply and fit a select range of rubber and ceramic pulley lagging to eliminate slippage and provide resistance to corrosion and abrasion, offering high performance and long life. Thejo Australia Pty Ltd caters to rubber lagging and ceramic lagging. We offer On-site and Off-site pulley lagging services to ensure an efficient and smooth operation of your conveyor system. Our technicians are trained in the latest splicing and repair techniques and use quality material and equipment.
