IDLERS, PULLEYS, & CONVEYOR BELTS
Idlers, Pulleys & Conveyor Belts
A head pulley is the pulley at the discharge end of the conveyor.
A wing pulley is a type of conveyor tail pulley that has a flat bar welded to a gusset (like a T cross-section) then welded to a cylindrical drum.
A conveyor belt (or belt conveyor) consists of two or more pulleys with a continuous loop of material - the conveyor belt - that rotates about them. One or both of the pulleys are powered, moving the belt and the material on the belt forward. The powered pulley is called the drive pulley while the unpowered pulley is called the idler. There are two main industrial classes of belt conveyors: those in general material handling such as those moving boxes along the inside a factory and bulk material handling such as those used to transport industrial and agricultural materials, such as grain, coal, and ores, generally in outdoor locations. Companies providing general material handling-type belt conveyors typically do not provide the conveyors for bulk material handling. In addition, there are a number of commercial applications of belt conveyors such as those in grocery stores.
