Drive and tail pulleys are an essential part of conveyors and play an important role in efficient and reliable conveyance of materials and goods. These drums are mainly installed at the beginning and end of a conveyor belt and essentially consist of three components: the side parts, the tube and the axle. Internally mounted tail pulleys (UTI) do not require additional bearings to function properly as these are integrated. In contrast, welded drums (AT and UT) or drums with clamping set (ATSP and UTSP) are installed and operated with pillow block bearings.
