Designed to meet or exceed CEMA standards using selective weight distribution providing the right amount of weight in the right places.
For over 20 years, PCI has been manufacturing conveyor pulleys with quality and reliability at the forefront. Our Heavy Duty and Mine Duty conveyor pulleys are designed with selective weight distribution to ensure that you receive the optimum value for your purchase. This means you’re getting the right amount of strength…in the right places.
The difference between a Heavy Duty and a Mine Duty conveyor pulley is component thickness. The thicker the components used, the greater the series name (heavy, mine, etc.). Applications with impact loads require consideration of component thicknesses for purposes of strength. Applications with loose, bulk materials require consideration to account for abrasion resistance and the increased possibility of point loading between the pulley and belt. Although it is possible to select specific component thicknesses per application, PCI has engineered our Heavy Duty and Mine Duty pulleys to allow for easy selection and optimum value. Additionally, PCI Drum Pulleys designed with Contoured Integral End Disks maximize pulley life by reducing the risk of failure associated with end disk fatigue.
Heavy Duty Drum Pulleys
PCI Heavy Duty conveyor pulleys are designed to meet CEMA construction standards for standard duty belt conveyor applications where packaged or bulk goods are being conveyed.
PCI’s patent pending Ice-Eradicator® is the world’s first proven solution to temper the costly effects of frozen conveyor belts. When installed in the head position, a drum style Ice-Eradicator® will de-ice and soften the conveyor belt encouraging startup in freezing conditions. PCI’s innovative technology can also be adapted to any Eradicator® or Deflector® wing pulley to discourage problems related to ice buildup in non-drive positions.
PCI® Contoured Integral End Disks are designed to maximize conveyor pulley life by reducing the risk of failure from end disk fatigue. PCI’s design eliminates the need for a hub-to-disk weld by machining a hub directly into the surface of the end disk. In addition, PCI’s special contour optimizes the surface stress of the end disk by allowing for adequate flexibility not provided by flat disk designs.
PCI Dead Shaft Pulley Assemblies
PCI® Dead Shaft Assemblies are designed to maximize conveyor pulley life by eliminating the risk of failure from end disk fatigue while increasing the pulley’s overall capacity.
