Roller lagging plays a vital role in the performance of a conveyor. Especially if the conveyor carries heavy loads, is inclined or is operating in a wet environment.
The head drum or drive pulley is often covered (lagged) with a compound to prevent conveyor belt slippage. These compounds can vary from hard rubber, to polyurethane or to a soft rubber of about 40 durometer hardness (relatively soft), depending on the operating environment and the application.
In a wet environment, lagging with a grooved pattern is often used to grip the belt.
Polyurethane lagging is cast on the drum, while sheet lagging can be hot cured or cold glued.
