How to choose the thickness of conveyor pulley lagging rubber sheet?

Pulley rubber lagging is an important component in a belt conveyor system. Smooth metal pulley surfaces can cause the belt to slip, increasing wear on the pulley surface and the belt. It has a great impact on the safe operation of the conveying system.

The pulley after rubber lagging can prevent the conveyor belt from slipping to a large extent, effectively improve the operation of the conveying system, and reduce the wear of the roller and the conveyor belt.

Does that mean that the thicker the lagging rubber sheet, the better? When choosing the rubber lagging sheet, we should not only consider the conveying capacity, working environment, material properties, etc., but also consider the thickness of the rubber lagging sheet. Under different working conditions, the choice of thickness is also very important. For example, in the coal mine industry, the medium particles of the conveyed material are relatively large, and the material is easily drawn between the pulley and the conveyor belt during operation, causing damage to the rubber on the surface of the pulley. Therefore, in this case, the thickness of the rubber should be 12mm, 15mm and above thickness. On the contrary, for the case where the conveying volume is not large and the particles of the conveying medium are small, a thinner lagging rubber sheet can be selected

Choosing the appropriate thickness of the rubber lagging sheet can not only better protect the pulley, prevent the belt from slipping, but also save costs.
