Product Description

A conveyor will always consist of at least 2 pulleys, head pulley and tail pulley, with additional pulleys used depending on the configuration. Standard-duty pulleys are usually adequate for simple applications, but mine-duty and engineered pulleys are also available where heavy-duty pulleys are required.

Different kinds of conveyor pulleys
KONWEYOUR sells conveyor pulleys in all the following sub-categories: 

Head pulleys

The head pulley is located at the discharge point of the conveyor. It usually drives the conveyor and often has a larger diameter than other pulleys. For better traction, the head pulley is usually lagged (with either rubber or ceramic lagging material).

Tail and CHINAMFG pulleys

The tail pulley is located at the loading end of the belt. It comes with either a flat face or a slatted profile (wing pulley), which cleans the belt by allowing material to fall between the support members.

Snub pulleys

A snub pulley improves the traction of the drive pulley, by increasing its belt wrap angle.

Drive pulleys

Drive pulleys, which can also be the head pulley, are driven by a motor and power transmission unit to propel the belt and material to the discharge.

Bend pulleys

A bend pulley is used for changing the direction of the belt.

Take-up pulley

A take-up pulley is used to provide the belt with the proper amount of tension. Its position is adjustable.

Can you explain the typical applications of V pulleys in machinery?

V pulleys, also known as V-belt pulleys or sheaves, have a wide range of applications across various machinery and systems. Here’s an explanation of the typical applications of V pulleys:

1. Automotive Systems:

V pulleys are extensively used in automotive systems. They are found in engines, where they transmit power from the crankshaft to various accessories such as the alternator, water pump, power steering pump, and air conditioning compressor. V pulleys in automotive applications ensure efficient power transmission and enable the proper functioning of essential vehicle components.

2. Industrial Machinery:

In industrial machinery, V pulleys find widespread use in power transmission systems. They are commonly employed in belt-driven conveyor systems, where they transfer power from electric motors to drive belts that move materials or products along the conveyor lines. V pulleys are also used in various industrial equipment, such as agricultural machinery, machine tools, printing presses, and packaging machines.

3. HVAC Systems:

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems utilize V pulleys for power transmission. V pulleys are employed in fans, blowers, and pumps used in HVAC systems. They enable the efficient operation of these components and contribute to the proper circulation of air or fluids in buildings, ensuring effective heating, cooling, and ventilation.

4. Appliances:

V pulleys are found in a range of household and commercial appliances. They are used in washing machines and dryers to transmit power from electric motors to the drum or agitator. V pulleys are also employed in power tools, such as drills and saws, to transfer rotational motion from the motor to the cutting or drilling mechanism.

5. Mining and Construction Equipment:

In the mining and construction industries, V pulleys are utilized in heavy machinery and equipment. They are commonly found in excavators, bulldozers, cranes, and loaders, where they transmit power to various components such as hydraulic pumps, winches, and conveyor systems. V pulleys in mining and construction equipment play a crucial role in enabling efficient and reliable operation in demanding environments.

6. Agricultural Equipment:

Agricultural machinery extensively employs V pulleys for power transmission. Tractors, combines, harvesters, and other agricultural equipment utilize V pulleys to transfer power to different components, including pumps, augers, conveyors, and cutting mechanisms. V pulleys in agricultural machinery facilitate the efficient performance of farming operations.

These are just a few examples of the typical applications of V pulleys in machinery. Due to their versatility, reliability, and ability to handle high torque, V pulleys are widely utilized in numerous industries and mechanical systems to ensure efficient power transmission and proper functioning of various equipment and machinery.
