A conveyor will always consist of at least 2 pulleys, head pulley and tail pulley, with additional pulleys used depending on the configuration. Standard-duty pulleys are usually adequate for simple applications, but mine-duty and engineered pulleys are also available where heavy-duty pulleys are required.
Different kinds of conveyor pulleys
KONWEYOUR sells conveyor pulleys in all the following sub-categories:
The head pulley is located at the discharge point of the conveyor. It usually drives the conveyor and often has a larger diameter than other pulleys. For better traction, the head pulley is usually lagged (with either rubber or ceramic lagging material).
Tail and CHINAMFG pulleys
The tail pulley is located at the loading end of the belt. It comes with either a flat face or a slatted profile (wing pulley), which cleans the belt by allowing material to fall between the support members.
A snub pulley improves the traction of the drive pulley, by increasing its belt wrap angle.
Drive pulleys, which can also be the head pulley, are driven by a motor and power transmission unit to propel the belt and material to the discharge.
A bend pulley is used for changing the direction of the belt.
A take-up pulley is used to provide the belt with the proper amount of tension. Its position is adjustable.
Length of the pulley depends on the belt width of the conveyor

What advantages do V pulleys offer for power transmission?
V pulleys, also known as V-belt pulleys or sheaves, offer several advantages for power transmission in various applications. Here’s an explanation of the advantages provided by V pulleys:
1. High Efficiency:
V pulleys provide high efficiency in power transmission. The V-shaped groove on the pulley and the corresponding trapezoidal cross-section of the V-belt create a wedging action that enhances the grip between the pulley and the belt. This improved grip minimizes slippage and ensures efficient power transfer, resulting in higher overall system efficiency.
2. Wide Speed Range:
V pulleys offer a wide speed range capability. By using different-sized pulleys, the speed ratio between the driving source and the driven component can be adjusted. This flexibility allows for the adaptation of power transmission systems to meet specific speed requirements, enabling optimal operation in various applications.
3. Shock and Vibration Dampening:
V pulleys have inherent shock and vibration dampening properties. The elasticity of the V-belt absorbs shocks and vibrations, reducing their transmission to the driven components. This feature helps to protect the machinery and equipment from excessive wear and damage, enhancing their reliability and lifespan.
4. Compact Design:
V pulleys offer a compact design compared to other types of pulleys. The V-belt drive system requires less space, making it suitable for applications where space constraints exist. The compact design also allows for efficient power transmission in tight or confined areas.
V pulleys are cost-effective compared to other power transmission systems. They are relatively simple in design and construction, making them more affordable to manufacture, install, and maintain. Additionally, V-belts have a longer service life compared to other types of belts, reducing the frequency and cost of replacement.
6. Easy Installation and Maintenance:
V pulleys are easy to install and maintain. The split design of some V pulleys allows for easy installation or replacement without the need to disassemble the entire system. Additionally, V-belts are generally easy to tension and adjust, simplifying maintenance tasks and reducing downtime.
V pulleys offer versatility in power transmission applications. They can accommodate a wide range of power requirements, making them suitable for various industries and systems. Additionally, V pulleys can transmit power over long distances without a significant loss in efficiency, allowing for flexibility in system design and layout.
These advantages make V pulleys a popular choice for power transmission in a wide range of applications. Their high efficiency, speed range capability, shock absorption, compact design, cost-effectiveness, ease of installation and maintenance, and versatility contribute to their widespread use in numerous industries and machinery.
