Tail Pulley

What is tail pulley?

The tail pulley is installed at the rearmost end of the belt conveyor. The tail pulley mainly plays a steering role and has a smooth surface. Generally, the head pulley and the tail pulley are indispensable. For short belt conveyors, the head pulley can be used as a drum pulley. For long belt conveyors, the drive pulley is usually installed in the middle of the belt conveyor, and the tail pulley and the head pulley can be made into the same structure.

Parts and components of the tail pulley

The tail pulley is composed of parts such as shaft, bearing, external pulley, and snap spring. For protection purposes, some belt conveyors need to be equipped with tail pulley guards. Depending on the design structure of the conveyor, it is possible to use a bearing with seat, which is installed on the conveyor body. It is also possible to use built-in bearings, which are installed inside the tail pulley.
