A conveyor pulley is a mechanical device that is used to change the direction of the conveyor belt and to transfer the power from the motor to the belt. It is a cylindrical-shaped component with a central shaft that rotates on bearings. The conveyor belt is wrapped around the pulley, and when the pulley rotates, it moves the belt along the conveyor system.
There are different types of conveyor pulleys, such as drive pulleys, tail pulleys, and bend pulleys. Drive pulleys are located at the head of the conveyor system and are connected to the motor, while tail pulleys are located at the tail end of the conveyor system. Bend pulleys are used to change the direction of the conveyor belt.
Conveyor pulleys are used in a variety of industries, including mining, manufacturing, and construction. They are also used in food processing and packaging, and in the automotive industry.
