The primary aim is to prevent wear of the pulley shell that may lead to the need for an expensive replacement of the whole pulley. Many mines spend considerable time measuring the thickness of the lagging on the pulleys once in service to keep track of replacement requirements. This normally involves operators using ultrasound techniques on the pulley surface during shutdowns to record the remaining thickness of the lagging. A visual alarm while conveyor is running reduces likelihood of pulley shell wear as well as maintenance hours for lagging control.
Key features and benefits
Elastotec Wear Indicator Rubber Lagging has a bottom coloured rubber layer to indicate the need for lagging replacement.
Simple system that provides an easy to recognize visual indicator that the abrasion resistant diamond lagging layer has worn through and should be scheduled for replacement. Provides a margin of safety by identifying wear before contact / damage to the pulley shell occurs.
Repeating diamond pattern.
Abrasion and tear resistance rubber.
3 cutting location sipe
Wear indicator CN buffed adhesion layer
Uncured bonding layer
Plastic release liner
