Conveyor Drums

Conveyor Drums by ELCO Conveyors

Elco Conveyors manufacture a complete range of bespoke head, tail and snub drums to customer specifications in various materials and shaft fixing arrangements. For example: bossed & welded, ringfeeder or taper lock bush.
Solid tube
This is the most common style of conveyor drum manufactured for all styles of belt conveyor.

Elco Conveyors can produce thin light guage conveyor drums in ø50, ø60, 63, ø70, ø76, ø80, ø89, ø102, ø114 and ø127mm with 3.2mm walls and an unmachined finish. To complement the range we also produce heavy duty drums with thick 6.3, 9.5 and 12.7mm walls in the following standard sizes ø60, 63, ø70, ø76, ø80, ø89, ø102, ø114, ø127, ø152, ø168, ø178, ø219, ø273, ø324, ø406, ø508 and ø610mm either machined crown face, flat face or tube finish.

All the above can be covered in hot vulcanised rubber in either plane, herringbone, chevron and diamond pattern as standard.

Slatted Shell
This style of conveyor drum is manufactured generally with 3 steel discs welded to a common shaft then finished with slats welded around the outside allowing detritus trapped on the underside of the belt to fall through the slats away from the belt. They are used where there is a possibility of build-up of material around the head or tail of the conveyor and for the tail ends of bucket elevators.

Elco Conveyors can produce slatted drums in any diameter required but have a tendency to try and stick to standard drums sizes as follows - ø60, 63, ø70, ø76, ø80, ø89, ø102, ø114, ø127, ø152, ø168, ø178, ø219, ø273, ø324, ø406, ø508 and ø610mm either machined crown face, flat face or bar finish.

Spiral Shell
This style of conveyor drum is mainly used in extreme conditions with heavy detritus, muddy / wet conditions. The opposing spirals of the drum scrape the underside of the belt cleaning whilst pushing material to each end of the pulley. Internal deflection vanes can be welded into the spiral drum to assist with this.

All the above can be manufactured with welded shafts, locking assemblies or taper locked to suit individual requirements.
