SPECIFICATION PULLEYS FOR BELT (First
1 .I It does
Covers the requirements for pulleys for belt conveyors.
the requirements for pulleys for portable and mobile belt conveyors.
2. Terminology 2.1 The terminology

of conveyor terms and definitions’
2.2 Edge Clearance of Belt - The edge clearance of a belt is the gap between each edge of the ‘eturn a;d carrying belt in their correct position and the nearest obstacle liable to be approached by the edge of the belt. 3. Dimensions 3.1 Nomenclature of dimensions shall be as given in Fig. 1 and in 3.2 to 3.4.
The Dasic diameter of the pulley shall be one of the followings:
200, 250, 315, 400, 500, 630, 800, 1 000, 1 250, 1 400 arid 1 600 mm. 3.2.1 Selection of pulley diameter shall be done as recommended in Appendix K of IS : 1891 (Part l)-1978 ‘Specification for rubber conveyor and elevator belting: Part 1 General purpose belting ( second revision )‘.
3.3 Edge ClearancePulleys shall be manufactured such that belts shall have minimum edge clearance of 50 mm up to belt widths ( b) of 650 mm : 75 mm for belt widths of 800 and 1 000 mm; and 100 mm for belt widths exceeding 1 000 mm. These edge clearances shall be applicable to conveyor belt speeds not greater than 3 m/s. For conveyor belt speeds greater than 3 m/s, the edge clearances shall be as agreed to between the purchaser and the manufacturer.
3.3.1 For special purpose conveyors edge clearance given in 3.2.

it may be necessary to reduce the
3.4 Pulley Face Width ( L ) - Shall be calculated by the following formula: Pulley face width (L ) = Belt width (b) + 2 X Edge clearance
