Description

Nowadays, in order to mine the ore economically, it became necessary to increase the tonnage of mined ore, as well as to improve the method of transporting the ore that is to be mined. Belt conveyors are essential equipment for transferring the material from one place to targeted place and conveyor pulleys are the major component of conveyor system. Such kind of conveyor system needs reliable conveyor pulleys. Different type of conveyor pulleys are used throughout the conveyor system as per their function. In this research, the agenda is on modification of present conveyor pulley design by removing the most common causes of catastrophic fatigue failure which are used for high tension application in mining industry. The target during the research is on improvement of end disc design, elimination keyed connection in between shaft and hub by using locking device. The another development is to use of gearless drive technology for drive pulleys. This is obtained by continuous improvement and strategic standardized process to cater the need of mining application. These modified conveyor pulleys are best suitable for high capacity, high tension long distance conveyors used in mining industry.
