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.
Traditionally, pulley lagging has been supplied in cut to size strips that match the pulley face length. This method requires the customer to stock a specific lagging strip length for each pulley size or place an order for each specific job which is translated in considerable lead times. Figure #1 shows a standard ceramic lagging strip with rubber ends cut to size and the ceramic length matched to the belt width.
Elastotec developed the technology and equipment to manufacture lagging in large rolls. This includes:
Joining press with injection/transfer tooling designed for each type of lagging profile.
Lagging supplied in rolls has 10 mm of rubber between tiles that allow the roll to be cut at any point between tiles. Following the Elastotec application procedures it is possible to make the strip cut from the roll to match the length of many different pulley face widths.
Rolls require minimum stock as only one roll for dimple lagging and one for plain lagging of each thickness need to be stocked. Because the roll can be cut to size to pulley face length, lagging is no longer made for a specific pulley face length. This gives the customer the possibility to reduce lead times.
Figure #2 above shows the design for lagging supplied in rolls.
Lagging rolls can be supplied up to the following sizes:
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.
