Ceramic Lagging- A good Thing Can Be Costly If Misused
Posted by - NA - on 11 October 2010 04:44 PM
Ceramic/Rubber composite lagging has gained many fans over the last few years by eliminating drive slip
and providing a wear resistance pulley surface. However, like many good things, it has been misapplied
in some cases and has contributed to costly problems. In order to ensure proper application, it is important
to understand the mechanics of torque transmission between the belt and pulley and how adding ceramic
tiles has changed the critical nature of lagging. What was once considered a sacrificial layer protecting the
pulley and belt can be damaging to the most expensive component in the system.
