Hot Vulcanised lagging application involves the chemical cross-linking of five reactive layers during the autoclave curing process. To achieve the desired 100% rubber tear adhesion
In November 2017 a major iron ore port facility in the Pilbara decided to replace the ceramic lagging on a high tension bend pulley –
Spare pulleys are held so that in the event that an operational pulley requires replacement this can be done quickly and efficiently at the timing
Catastrophic lagging failure due to debonding occurred within two weeks of installation and operation of the pulley, resulting in a shutdown of production, and necessitated
Lagging Selection is key to obtaining the best possible lagging performance and a recent visit to a pulley refurbishment facility emphasised this with three pulleys on the floor – two with cold bonded ceramic lagging and one with hot vulcanised ceramic lagging.
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.
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.
