Drums lagging

The lagging surface pattern was specially studied to increase the adherence between the motor drum and the conveyor belt underside. Created mainly for those conveyor belts running on a skid plate, Sampla Belting lagging keeps a high adhesion and an adequate tension even in presence of slimy material or fluids and resist to oils and aggressive chemicals. The use of these laggings, while warranting a high fiction coefficient between drive drum and belt, avoids sliding and overheating, reduces the required working tension and allows for a smaller elongation and a lower wear with the same load, permitting to keep the operating speed.

Reckoning of the required length

Given the drum diameter d [mm] and the drum length b [mm] the required length L is obtained with the formula:


Friction coefficient
