Conveyor roller selection
25th March 2019
A carrier conveyor roller generally consists of the tube, shaft, and bearing assemblies. In principle, the material and variants of the components for conveyor rollers should be carefully selected to meet the specific requirements. What dimensions, weight, and properties does the conveyed material have, and what requirements are placed on the transport system?
- Conveyor roller length
- Tube and shaft dimensions
- Shaft spacing
- Conveying speed
- Choice of material for the carrier conveyor roller assemblies
- Selecting the drive element
The bearing, tube, and shaft variants should be selected so that the weakest component is suitable for the loads conveyed. Technical requirements such as electrical conductivity or consideration for ambient conditions such as temperature, humidity, moisture, etc. must also go into the configuration.
