Hot Vulcanised lagging application involves the chemical cross-linking of five reactive layers during the autoclave curing process. To achieve the
In November 2017 a major iron ore port facility in the Pilbara decided to replace the ceramic lagging on a
Spare pulleys are held so that in the event that an operational pulley requires replacement this can be done quickly
Catastrophic lagging failure due to debonding occurred within two weeks of installation and operation of the pulley, resulting in a
Lagging can be of good quality and application can be correct, but lagging can still fail and does. Everything seems right but the lagging still doesn’t perform to expectations. So why does this happen? It’s because the lagging selection is not right for the application.
Elastotec extreme diamond rubber lagging is designed for drive and non drive pulleys that require extended service life.
At Elastotec, we engineer lagging solutions that keep conveyors running. Here are some causes of lagging failure.
Elastotec Direct Bond Ceramic Lagging - application system designed to improve adhesion consistency, reduce lead times, reduce glue wastage and labour time.
Elastotec OR FRAS can be supplied with either a Cold Vulcanised (CV) Bonding Layer or alternately a Hot Vulcanised (HV) Bonding Layer. For new pulleys or refurbished pulleys where the lagging will be done in a factory setting the HV Bonding is the preferred method as this provides a 100% rubber tear bond.
For pulleys that require lagging application in situ on the conveyor the CV Bonding system is the only option. It is important that the CV application is done using 100% Neoprene adhesive as this will have similar oil resistance to the OR FRAS lagging. The use of adhesives based on other polymers must be avoided as these may be prone to deterioration in contact with oil.
If you work in the mining industry, involved in conveyor maintenance, pulley manufacturing, conveyor design and conveyor maintenance, then, we would like to work with you to bring engineered pulley lagging solutions to the industry.
