Belt Rubber lagging
Belt width and belt tension
The drum motor must always be fitted with a conveyor belt on min. 2/3 rds of the roller width to prevent overheating. Drum motor with less belt contact or fitted without a belt, must be referred to Seaparks Company.
The conveyor belt should not be over tensioned, but sufficient only to pull the belt and load without belt slip. When adjusting the belt, it has to be secured that the belt is uniformly tensioned at both sides of the framework to avoid any over tension of the belt.
Rubber lagging can cause overheating of the drum motor in certain circumstances. Therefore please refer to Seaparks Company who will be pleased to advise the type and maximum thickness allowed.
