Multolag™ Pulley Lagging

Multolag™  is a direct bond ceramic pulley lagging system for drive and non-drive pulleys developed by Multotec. It is a maintenance-free, wear-resistant cover applied to pulley shells.

This patented conveyor pulley system contributes to reduced downtime and lower operating costs by improving traction in drive pulleys and providing a polished low friction surface on non-drive pulleys.

  • Ceramic pulley lagging does not wear
  • Increased plant availability
  • Surface consistency of ceramic lagging maintains belt tracking
  • Localised damage can be repaired without replacing complete lagging

Drive and non-drive pulley lagging

There are 2 variations of these conveyor pulleys, MultoLag™ Drive and MultoLag™ Non-Drive.

  • The non-drive version comprises work-polished smooth ceramic tiles designed to reduce friction and wear on the pulley and the conveyor belt.
  • The drive pulley type is made of high-density ceramic tiles, with studs. This helps it maintain maximum traction in all conditions, including wet and muddy conditions.

Each of these systems in available 7 and 13 mm lagging thickness.

Multolag™ reduces friction and wear rates.

Drive and non-drive differences

There are specific design elements that play a role in Multotec’s Multolag™ pulley systems.

Drive Pulleys

Multolag™ Drive Pulley lagging after more than 5 years in operation.

The high co-efficient of the studded tiles ensures there is no movement between the ceramic-lined drive pulley surface and the conveyor belt surface. They:

  • Have dewatering grooves that dissipate water
  • Can be hosed down without losing traction
  • Have studs with rounded edges that prevent belt undercover wear

Non-drive pulleys

Multolag™ Non-Drive Pulley Lagging after more than 15 years' operation.

The smoothed polished surface, attained by very hard ceramics, provides minimal friction and less resistance, both of which significantly reduce wear.
