Garland Idlers in Conveyor Systems
A garland idler is a type of conveyor idler that consists of a set of rollers arranged in a V shape. These rollers are attached to a frame and can rotate independently. Garland idlers differ from other idlers in that they have a larger diameter and are spaced farther apart. They are considered superior to other idlers because they offer several advantages, including reduced belt sag, improved belt support, and reduced vibration and noise.
There are different types of chemical finishes used on garland idlers to improve their performance and increase their lifespan. These include:
Ceramic coating – used for high wear resistance in abrasive environments.
UHMWPE coating – used for wear resistance and improved sliding properties.
Teflon coating – used for non-stick and anti-static properties.
Garland idlers are mainly used in conveyor systems that handle heavy loads, such as those in mining and bulk material handling industries. They are particularly suitable for use in long conveyor systems where belt sag can be a problem. Garland idlers provide increased belt support, reducing the amount of sag in the belt and improving the overall performance of the conveyor system.
Some of the factors that make garland idlers a good choice for conveyor systems include their ability to handle heavy loads, their reduced vibration and noise levels, and their improved belt support. Garland idlers can also reduce maintenance costs by extending the life of the conveyor belt and reducing wear and tear on other components of the system.
Garland idlers are best suited for conveyor systems with an incline or decline angle of more than 20 degrees. The rollers on the garland idler are spaced farther apart, providing increased belt support and reducing the risk of belt sag.
Garland idlers work with the conveyor belt by providing support and reducing belt sag. The V shape of the idler allows the rollers to support the belt from the sides, reducing the amount of sag in the belt. This improves the overall performance of the conveyor system by reducing the risk of belt damage, improving belt tracking, and reducing wear and tear on other components of the system.
