New Video: Pulley lagging
You need conveyor pulley lagging that bonds perfectly to the shell of your conveyor pulleys to extend the life of your pulleys and provide better grip to the conveyor.
And some lagging option are better suited to certain applications. Brain manufactures a range of lagging – from rubber to ceramic and polyurethane – to meet your needs.
Our Australian made pulley lagging is made to last longer and comes in a range of sizes. We have lagging in stock or we can make your pulley lagging to order, with a fast turnaround time.
Polyurethane longwall mine plugs
Leading longwall mines are turning to polyurethane coating of roof support lift key plugs, pontoon plugs and walkway plugs to improve safety and performance.
These plugs significantly reduce coal fines build up in tow holes. Coal fines build up can cause delays and additional work during longwall relocations.
Plugs are traditionally made from mild steel, making them heavy. Steel plugs can rust which makes them difficult to remove when relocating longwalls.
Our polyurethane coated plugs are lighter and prevent corrosion.
How do you choose the most cost effective lagging?
There are different types of pulley lagging using different materials.
So, how do you assess which is the most cost effective pulley lagging option?
When comparing lagging options and pricing, make sure you are comparing apples with apples.
The quoted sheet price is one thing. but factors such as the sheet width (which influences the number of sheets you need) and the life expectancy of the lagging gives you a better guide to the overall lifecycle cost and its true cost effectiveness. The quality of the lagging varies too, depending on the manufacturer.
