Pulleys are an essential component of both Bucket Elevators and Belt Conveyors. The core construction of a Pulley is either a standard pipe or rolled steel plate that is welded to end plates. This Pulley core is then generally fitted to the Pulley shaft, which can then be inserted into the conveyor. It is common to have Pulleys rubber-lagged to increase the Pulley friction on the Elevator / Conveyor Belt. Skilled Materials Handling designs their own pulleys to suit your conveyor needs.
