Non-drive Pulleys

Conveyor & Industrial Supplies (Pty) Ltd manufacture durable, high quality drive and non-drive pulleys. A non-drive pulley is a type of conveyor belt pulley that is not connected to any power source and is typically used to redirect the belt or maintain tension. Non-drive pulleys are commonly used in conjunction with drive pulleys to help move materials along the conveyor system.

The non-drive pulley is best suited for environments that require tensioning of the conveyor belt or redirection of the belt around a curve or obstructions. Non-drive pulleys are often used in industries such as mining, quarrying, and material handling, where conveyor systems are subject to wear and tear, with larger drive pulleys to handle the increased load. These pulleys are superior to other pulleys in their ability to redirect the conveyor belt and maintain tension. Non-drive pulleys are typically smaller in size than a drive pulley, allowing it to be used in tighter spaces and in areas where there is limited clearance. Non-drive pulleys are typically made of lightweight materials and are often more affordable than drive pulleys, making them a cost-effective solution for conveyor systems.

Furthermore, this pulley is best suited for use with lighter materials and smaller loads, such as sand, gravel, and other smaller materials. The materials being transported can impact the selection of the non-drive pulley, as heavier materials may require a larger pulley to maintain tension and redirect the belt.

Non-drive Pulleys vs Drive Pulleys

The difference between a drive pulley and a non-drive pulley is that a drive pulley is connected to a power source, such as an electric motor, while a non-drive pulley is not. Drive pulleys are used to move materials along the conveyor system, while non-drive pulleys are used to redirect the belt or maintain tension.

A non-drive pulley would be used in a conveyor system where tensioning or redirection of the belt is required. This could include applications such as material handling, mining, and quarrying, where conveyor belts are often subject to heavy loads and wear. Non-drive pulleys are often used in combination with drive pulleys to provide a complete conveyor system that can move materials efficiently and effectively.
