Features and Benefits of Motorized Pulleys

Purpose-built design The Motorized Pulley has been specifically designed for belt conveyors. Totally enclosed The motor, gearbox and bearings are totally enclosed and sealed inside a steel shell; therefore they are unlikely to fail due to harmful environmental conditions such as water, dust, grit chemicals, grease, oil, etc.

Space saving design Because the drive unit and the bearings are mounted inside the Motorized Pulley shell, it takes up much less room than a conventional drive. No need for costly extras like chains, v-belts, couplings, bearings, support structure and special guarding. Safety The Motorized Pulley is probably one of the safest drives available because the motor is completely enclosed and the external shafts are always stationary. The only moving external parts are the Motorized Pulley shell and bearing housings. Low purchasing and installation cost The Motorized Pulley is quite often less expensive than a conventional drive because it has fewer parts, which reduces conveyor design and purchasing costs. It is also much

quicker and easier to install certainly less than a quarter of the time needed to fit an exposed system. Low maintenance cost The end user also benefits from the Motorized Pulley, because it requires no maintenance other than the recommended oil change every 20.000 hours. In other words, there are almost 10 years between oil changes based on an 8-hour/day 5-day working week. In order to secure a long lifetime of the pulley, it is, however, recommendable after approx. 2.000 hours to clean the magnet fitted to the oil screw. Efficiency The Motorized Pulley usually has a much higher efficiency from electrical motor to shell (pulley face) than conventional drives, because it has fewer frictional losses, and therefore efficiencies of up to 97 % can be achieved.

Cleanliness Because the Motorized Pulley is totally enclosed, it cannot contaminate any conveying materials such as electrical components, plastics and other materials that must be kept perfectly clean during handling. Aesthetic appearance If installed correctly the Motorized Pulley always looks good. Due to its compact size and smooth lines, quite often the Motorized Pulley is out of sight, because it is hidden within the conveyor frame. Weight saving and distribution Often the Motorized Pulley is lighter than conventional drives and often it is possible to reduce the cost of the conveyor structure, because the weight is evenly distributed within the conveyor frame. Fewer parts A Motorized Pulley consists of the drive and two fixing brackets! Conventional

drives can require up to 8 or more separate components, most of which have to be purchased from different suppliers or manufactured specially. Low noise Thanks to the totally sealed enclosure and high quality gears the Motorized Pulley runs almost at a whisper a very important fact in todays modern factory environments.

Rollers, motorized pulleys and components for belt conveyors in bulk handling applications

bulk handling
Rollers and components for belt conveyors in bulk handling applications With an experience of more than fifty years in belt conveyors applications, Rulmeca has been constantly increasing its product range and developing solutions to meet any specific application need; in other words, a constant evolution. The state-of-the-art techniques used in design and construction means that top performance levels are granted even in the heaviest operating conditions. Conforming to the UNI-DIN, ISO, AFNOR, CEMA and BS standards, Rulmeca products are used in countless different sectors, such as mining, cement, steel works, glass, chemicals and fertilisers industries.

Rollers for belts widths up to 3.000 mm. Available in diameters 63, 76, 89, 102, 108, 114, 127, 133, 140, 152, 159, 168, 194 and 219 mm. Spindle: 15, 20, 25, 30, 40, 50, 60 and 90 mm.

Rollers and components for belt conveyors in bulk handling applications

Carrying troughing sets
The arrangements of fixed carrying troughing sets can be with plain or impact rollers or suspended garlands.

carrying throughing set

Impact stations
Impact stations are used and positioned corresponding to the load points, where the lumps and the weight of material falling onto the belt could in fact cause damage to it.

Self-aligning troughing sets

The self-aligning troughing set is designed as a series of rollers arranged in a trough positioned onto the supporting transom which itself is fixed to a slewing ring which permits rotation. The slewing ring (a large ball bearing) permits a rotation limited to 5-8 degrees and is sized in proportion to the vertical loading; a tapered roller bearing assembled to the shaft of the slewing ring, absorbs any side forces or overturning pressures.

Return stations
The lower or return sets may also be chosen from varying arrangements according to the requirement: fixed sets with plain steel roller or with spacer rings and suspended sets garland with plain rollers and with rings.

Suspended garland sets
The garland consists of a series of load carrying rollers, attached together by chain links. This arrangement gives to the troughing set the characteristics of mobility and flexibility resulting in a perfect central belt trough.

Motorized pulleys
These versatile and successful pulleys are easy to install, have low running costs and minimise maintenance. They are used on light conveyors (in supermarkets and airports), on heavier plants for the mining industries and agriculture, on permanent and mobile quarries installations and in the food industry. Their completely stainless steel executions are approved by the American Authority FDA. Motorized pulley are totally sealed, have a protection class IP 67 and a maximum power of 250 kW.

Rulmeca designs and manufactures pulleys, using materials of the highest quality in a production process employing advanced technology. This, together with the application of the Quality Assurance system certified to ISO 9001:2008, contributes to the production of high quality products offering dependable, long life performance in the field and appreciably reducing maintenance costs.

impact idler set

The necessity to protect belt conveyors may arise from the weather, from the volatile characteristics of the conveyed material, or from the type of works plant, and also from European norms that require the covering of the total length of a belt conveyor in the open. Rulmeca covers do not require maintenance and are very easy to install and move around. There are two styles of covers that are proposed: those in pre-formed PVC and those in corrugated galvanised sheet steel.

Belt cleaners
The use of cleaning equipment has become an indispensable requirement to assure general plant efficiency and to reduce the times of service needed for maintenance. There has been a notable development of this equipment in recent time for differing reasons: prolonging the life of the conveyor; limiting the deterioration of the belt, improving the energy efficiency of the installation, reducing loss of material thereby increasing the load capacity, eliminating a major cause of wear on the return rollers.
