The wing roller is also called a blocking roller or a vertical roller. The wing roller is mainly connected to the self-aligning bracket. A wing roller is a product used in the self-aligning idler. The wing roller is installed on both sides of the conveyor belt to prevent the conveyor belt from shifting. That is to say, when the tape deflects, one side of the wing roller is squeezed, and the wing roller rotates around the rotation shaft on the rotating mechanism through the movement rod. The rotation shaft drives the pull rod to rotate, and the final pull rod pushes the entire roller group to rotate an angle, so that the tape runs smoothly. Reliable, significant self-aligning effect, and simple structure, which can meet the needs of modern operation development.
During the operation of the belt conveyor, the flexibility of the supporting rollers is very important. If the flexibility of the supporting rollers is not good and the rotation resistance coefficient is high, the entire belt conveyor system has to pay great power and consume more power. Sometimes it can cause the tape to tear and the motor to burn out. In severe cases, it can cause a fire. Therefore, choosing a roller with a low coefficient of rotation resistance (less than 0.020) is an important part of the design and selection of a belt conveyor.
