  • Catastrophic failures
  • Insufficient service life
  • Costs associated for end user
3) Modes of failure
  • Application failure
  • Product design and manufacturing failure
  • Incorrect product specification
4) Identifying potential lagging performance improvement beyond end user expectations
  • Digging deeper, asking the right questions
  • Identifying potential performance improvements even when end user end user is not aware there is a problem
5) Pulley lagging, an engineered component
  • Lagging to be considered as an engineered component to last as long as the mechanical pulley components – no longer a consumable item.
  • Required service life (outdoor ageing)
  • Shear stresses
  • Pulley position in conveyor
  • Carryback and buildup
  • Contact with fluids
  • Operating temperatures
6) Approved applicator programme
  • Warranty
  • Product innovation
  • Case studies
  • Lagging Analyst
7) Lagging recommendations for different applications and pulley positions
