Product Description

Our 12.64” diameter Motorized Pulley range offers three different performance levels for BULK applications:

  • L for Light duty
  • M for Medium duty
  • H for Heavy duty

It is important to note the product differences and choose the appropriate pulley based on estimated belt tension (radial load.) The actual radial load must be less than the maximum allowable radial load shown in this catalog.

Be aware of increased belt tensions required to drive multi-ply thick heavy belts and/or larger belt widths.

If the 12.64” diameter model is not strong enough to resist estimated belt tension, then select 15.91” diameter model.

L for Light Duty

320L is designed for regular and continuous operating conditions. It is advisable to rubber lag these pulleys to grip the belt and limit belt tension. Typical applications are portable conveyors and cross belts in mobile crushing and screening equipment. 320L should not be used for low speed high torque feeder conveyors. 320L uses motor and gearbox from 220M.

M for Medium Duty

The internal parts of 320M are designed for tough and irregular operating conditions (e.g. crushing & screening applications, asphalt, cement, and concrete plants.)

H for Heavy Duty

A solid 3-stage gearbox, larger shafts, and stronger bearings enable the 320H to provide low speed at high torque and handle irregular loadings in harsh operating conditions.
