Conveyor Head Pulley

The belt conveyor head pulley is a mechanical part installed at the very front of the belt conveyor along the running direction of the conveyor. It plays the role of guiding, changing the running direction, providing power to the conveyor, etc. It is one of the core parts of the conveyor.

The head pulley is composed of a series of parts such as shaft, bearing, bearing seat, external roller, and circlip. Depending on the role, the head pulley can be used as a drive pulley to provide power to the conveyor. The head pulley can also be used as a redirecting pulley, installed at the very front of the conveyor. It is the main part of the belt conveyor composition with the tail pulley and the take-up pulley.

Types of head pulley

Head Pulley-driven pulley

Head pulley -drum pulley (installed in the front of the conveyor to provide power for the conveyor, also called drum pulley, generally less than 400mm in diameter), generally used for short-distance conveyor belt machine or for long-size objects, for the conveying line docking requirements are not high places.

Usage: Food Industry, Pharmaceuticals Industry, Express E-commerce parcel sorting, Household appliances industry, etc

Head Pulley lagging

The lagging of the pulleys effectively improves the operation of the conveyor system, protects the metal rollers from wear and tear, prevents slippage of the conveyor belt, and synchronizes the pulleys with the belt.

Head pulleys-standard pulley

The regular head pulley is installed at the front end of the conveyor and its main function is to tighten the belt and guide it. Since the drum pulley is installed in the middle section of the belt conveyor, the installation and structure of the head pulley are relatively simple. The head pulley consists of a central shaft, a bearing and a drum. The bearing can be mounted either inside the pulley or on external support. It is an important part of the conveyor together with the take-up pulley, the tail pulley, the snub pulley, and the bend pulley.

Magnetic Head Pulleys

The magnetic head pulley is usually used as the drive pulley of the belt conveyor. When the material passes the magnetic pulley on the transport belt, it will be sorted. Magnetic materials are attracted when they move to the top of the drum and automatically fall off when they turn to the bottom, while non-magnetic materials fall directly along the horizontal parabolic trajectory, and magnetic materials and non-magnetic materials will enter different receiving hoppers respectively.
