Belt conveyors utilize a friction drive and accordingly, when power is applied to the drive system, one run of the belt will experience a higher tension than the other. The amount of slack side tension required to prevent slippage at the drive is a function of several constant factors amongst others is the coefficient of friction between the drive system. Below is a list of standard drive pulley friction factors from various design catalogues and standards.
|Friction Factor (Min)||Friction Factor (Max)||Description||Reference|
|0.8||0.8||pulleys lagged with ceramics||CMA|
|0.35||0.35||dry lagged pulleys||CMA|
|0.4||0.45||Dry Lagged||REMA TIP TOP|
|0.35||0.35||Wet Lagged||REMA TIP TOP|
|0.25||0.3||Wet and Dirty Lagged||REMA TIP TOP|
|0.35||0.35||Wet Lagged||STEVENS ADAMSON|
|0.35||0.35||Dry Lagged||STEVENS ADAMSON|
|0.35||0.35||Wet and Dirty Lagged||CEMA|
