The performance of drive pulley lagging has become much more important in recent years due to higher torque drives, higher conveyor belt speeds, and the use of ceramic lagging. The popularity of ceramic lagging is due to the reduced risk of drive pulley slip and reduction of lagging wear.
Ceramic/Rubber composite lagging has gained many fans over the last few years by eliminating drive slip and providing a wear resistance pulley surface. However, like many good things, it has been misapplied in some cases and has contributed to costly problems.
