WING PULLEYS

Several self-cleaning designs available in standard, heavy and mine duty, which allow unwanted material to fall away.
   
Product Description

Also known as self-cleaning pulleys, wing pulleys are primarily used on the tail end of bulk handling systems where loose materials have a tendency to reside on the underside of the conveyor belt, causing damage to one or both components. Wing pulleys incorporate a non-continuous contact surface comprised of individual wings or fins. This construction results in the creation of open voids that allow loose material to fall away from the contact surface. In applications where continuous contact is desired, spiral wing pulleys can be utilized.

Wing-Pulleys-Construction

The difference between wing pulley configurations is component thickness and the use of supplemental reinforcing agents. The thicker the components used, the greater the series name (heavy, mine, etc.). Furthermore, to brace the components under the heavier loads, wing pulleys utilize stiffening agents such as gussets and reinforcing rings between wing members. Because diameter plays a role in pulley capacity, not all configurations are available in all diameters.

Product Offering

Standard Duty Wing Pulleys
ss.pulley-hi-R_1

HUB TYPES:

Plain Bore

Welded Through Shaft

Keyed Hubs with Setscrews

Welded Compression Hubs with Bushings

Keyless Locking Devices

Dead Shaft Assembly


Heavy Duty Wing Pulleys
ss.pulley-hi-R_1

Heavy Duty wings are designed for bulk handling applications where material removal is desired and moderate to heavy impact or extreme loading is likely. Available in four hub styles and features gussets to reinforce the wing members.

Diameters Available: 14″ thru 52″

HUB TYPES:

Keyed Hubs with Setscrews

Welded Compression Hubs with Bushings

Keyless Locking Devices

Dead Shaft Assembly


Mine Duty Wing Pulleys
ss.pulley-hi-R_1

Mine Duty wings are designed for more demanding bulk handling applications where material removal is desired and extreme loading is highly likely. Available in three hub styles and feature gussets and reinforcing rings to stabilize wing members.

Diameters Available: 12″ thru 52″

HUB TYPES:

Welded Compression Hubs with Bushings

Keyless Locking Devices

Dead Shaft Assembly


THE ERADICATOR®

Solid Core

plain

Solid core pulleys offer self-cleaning benefits in the smallest of pulley diameters. Wing members can be designed using profiles including fins with flat tips, round bar or custom profiles.

Round Bar

plain

Round bar designs (also called Beater Bar) feature a series of solid steel round bars welded to a tube or pipe core. The robust construction provides an increased safety factor in harsh environments.

Squirrel Cage

plain

Squirrel cage pulleys are comprised of solid steel round bars welded to a series of disks which serve as the pulleys core. The open body construction provides for added clean-out over round bar or standard wing pulley designs.

7-Shaped

plain

7-Shaped wing pulleys feature steel wing members formed to a bent shape resembling the number seven. The profile of the wing member reduces belt wear while providing an economical construction for light duty applications.
