Hot Vulcanised lagging application involves the chemical cross-linking of five reactive layers during the autoclave curing process. To achieve the
In November 2017 a major iron ore port facility in the Pilbara decided to replace the ceramic lagging on a
Spare pulleys are held so that in the event that an operational pulley requires replacement this can be done quickly
Catastrophic lagging failure due to debonding occurred within two weeks of installation and operation of the pulley, resulting in a
Lagging can be of good quality and application can be correct, but lagging can still fail and does. Everything seems right but the lagging still doesn’t perform to expectations. So why does this happen? It’s because the lagging selection is not right for the application.
Elastotec extreme diamond rubber lagging is designed for drive and non drive pulleys that require extended service life.
At Elastotec, we engineer lagging solutions that keep conveyors running. Here are some causes of lagging failure.
Elastotec Direct Bond Ceramic Lagging - application system designed to improve adhesion consistency, reduce lead times, reduce glue wastage and labour time.
Elastotec works closely with mining companies, manufacturers such as PROK Conveyor Components, Nepean Mining and Joy Global, pulley refurbishment companies and our network of “Approved Applicators” to develop and refine our products based on operational feedback and technological advances. We collect data on lagging condition/failure from our international network of “Approved Applicators” each time they receive a pulley for refurbishment. This enables us to build a picture of the factors that reduce service life across lagging from many suppliers. With extensive experience in the latest elastomer technology, as well as bonding and adhesion of elastomers to various substrates, our engineering expertise is focused on developing lagging that eliminates or at least minimizes these failure modes.
If you work in mining company operations/maintenance or are involved in the manufacture and refurbishment of conveyor pulleys, then we would like to share more about our ground-breaking work at Elastotec with you.
If you work in the mining industry, involved in conveyor maintenance, pulley manufacturing, conveyor design and conveyor maintenance, then, we would like to work with you to bring engineered pulley lagging solutions to the industry.
