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.

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.

The Deflector® Wing Pulley

The Deflector® wing pulley increases the performance of a traditional wing pulley with the addition of PCI’s proven and patented ports coupled with angled deflectors to continuously direct material to the outer edges of the pulley. The combination of these features enables the Deflector to cleanout 5 times faster than a traditional wing pulley.

How Does is Work?

Traditional wing pulleys feature straight wings that contact the belt intermittently, entrapping and recirculating material rather than displacing it, often leading to belt damage and pulley failure. The Deflector wing pulley utilizes the same straight wing members as a traditional wing pulley but drastically improves cleanout efficiency from its cleanout ports and patent pending deflectors. The accelerated cleanout produced by the deflectors and ports will provide longer component life for the pulley and the belt.

Because the Deflector wing pulley improves on the performance of a traditional wing pulley, any bulk material application where a traditional wing pulley is being used will benefit from the Deflector. However, if maximum cleanout efficiency is desired, no other conveyor pulley will perform as well as the Eradicator.

Solid Core

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

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.

Squirrel Cage

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

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.
