DRIVE COMPONENTS

Everything you need to keep moving from start to finish

PULLEYS

The pulley is essentially responsible for driving the belt:  Drive or head, return or tail, bend tensioning, snub tensioning or take-up Pulleys.  Maximum pulley life is essential to cost-efficient material handling and high-capacity production.  Learn More about our Pulley Lagging Service

 

SHAFTS

Conveyor shafts transmit rotation and torque.  Shaft size is determined on full motor torque of the drive assembly and the materials of construction for the shafts such as carbon or stainless steel.  Contact us to find the correct shaft for your application.

 

DRUM MOTOR

A drum motor is a conveyor component where the motor, gear drive and all moving parts are enclosed inside the drum.  The motor and gears operate in a sealed oil bath ensuring proper lubrication and cooling.  Because the drive is self-contained, maintenance is greatly reduced as there is no external motor, gear reducer, sprockets, chain or OSHA required chain guard. 

 

SPROCKETS

 

Sprockets transmit power to drive belting.  They are toothed gears or profiled wheels that mesh with a conveyor chain or belt to transmit rotary motion.  The sprockets need to be carefully matched to the conveyor and belting type.

 

We offer all types of sprockets including:

Metal – Stainless Steel, Cast Iron

Plastics -  Urethane, Nylon, Acetal – Molded and Machined


UHMW - Traditional White or our exclusive Blue UHMW Sprockets which reduce the possibility of food contamination.

Specifications and considerations for conveyor sprockets include:
 

  • Number of teeth

  • Bore diameter

  • Hub diameter

  • Outside diameter

  • Length-through bore

  • Weight

  • Power-transmission

  • Speed

  • Operating temperature

  • Exposure to corrosive elements

  • Noise generation
