Drums are used in belt conveyors for the handling of bulk materials, with predominant functions of activating (control drums) and tensioning (idler drums) the rubber matting.
In the most challenging handling systems such as large mining or port complexes, etc., where hourly flow rates and speeds are high and the distances or differences in altitude to be reached or gained are considerable, they are further distinguished depending on the specific application:
- contrast drums;
- deviator drums;
- tensioning drums.
The diagrams shown on pages 72-73 and 82 illustrate simplified examples of installations; many solutions are adopted in large installations.
TECNORULLI manufactures drums for belt conveyors with rubber or steel matting of all types and in all sizes, for every industrial sector.
The quality of the first choice materials used and the accuracy of machining which is monitored throughout the entire production process make it possible to offer the user a product with highly reliable advanced mechanical and technological characteristics.
