Driving drums

Driving drums put in motion the conveyor belt under the action of the drive. The working surface of the drum is lined up for the most effective coupling with the belt. The main types of lining-up are: dismountable rubber (bolt or tongue and groove arrangement), glued rubber or rubber-ceramic, metal-ceramic (welded coupling).

Driving drum is installed at the beginning or at the end of the conveyor depending on the technological scheme. It puts the entire conveyor in motion under the action of the gear motor. The working surface of the drum is lined up for the most effective coupling with the belt.

The driving drum is used for transmission of the pull force needed for putting the belt in motion. The driving drums are the elements of the conveyor equipment intended for transportation of cargoes, bulk materials, products and parts in different industries.

The set of driving drums includes either one shaft console intended for coupling with the drive mechanism, or two symmetrically placed consoles allowing making coupling of the drum with two mechanisms.

There are different designs and schedule-sizes of driving drums. Their characteristics and schedule-sizes depend on the following parameters: belt width, work load, center shaft diameter for bearing and bolt diameter, console and keyed connection size, total weight and the weight of the rolling elements. Besides that the driving drums may be smooth or lined-up.
