Introduction to friction idler:
The friction carrier roller has a strong ability to prevent the
damage and deviation of the conveyor belt. It can prevent and
correct the deviation of the conveyor belt by using the mechanism
of friction resistance and the arc of the friction wheel to achieve
the effect of centering.
The role of rollers is to support the conveyor belt and material
weight.Rollers must operate flexibly and reliably.Reducing the
friction between the conveyor belt and the supporting roller plays
a key role in the life of the conveyor belt which accounts for more
than 25% of the total cost of the conveyor.Although the idler is a
small part in a belt conveyor, its structure is not complicated,
but it is not easy to make high-quality idlers.If the conveyor belt
running deviation, relative to the center of gravity to which side
which partial friction will increase, in under the action of
friction, high friction will be at the end of the conveyor belt
running direction generate oscillation, the function transfer belt
of the automatic swing back to the operation of the middle route.
Application scope of friction idler:
Friction idlers are widely used in mining, electric power,
metallurgy, chemical industry, food, construction, port, dock and
other belt conveyors.
The technical parameters are as follows:
