Conveyor Drive Drums

Our Conveyor Belt Drum Products & Services

Hoverdale make conveyor drive drums to order. We work hard to find the right solution for each customer to build drums that fit with the maintenance pattern of their systems. Drive drums are fabricated in a number of ways to ensure the correct life of the drum & the conveyor system. These include:

  • Plain
  • Lagged with rubber
  • Lagged with a rubber/ceramic composite
  • Lagged with hard metals for long-life applications

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I do to improve drive in wet conditions?

The best thing to do is to lag the drum with a ceramic/rubber composite material. The ceramic tiles will have small raised cylinders to increase grip and drive.

My drive drum pulley has failed. What can you do to help?

We are able to repair drums and manufacture them in a few days.

  • Working with you to achieve a program of planned maintenance – we can custom-make products to last the length of time you need them to last to fit in with your planned maintenance programme

Our Offer To You

Operating a bulk material handling plant is an expensive business made more difficult by excessive down time and costly maintenance. It is important that the best possible equipment and materials are used to minimise these difficulties which is where Hoverdale’s area of experience lays.

In every case, we enable customers to:

  • Reduce downtime due to unscheduled break downs
  • Save on equipment cost & renewal costs
  • Save man hours on maintenance
  • Minimising & eliminating lost production
  • Increase their bottom line by achieving savings in all of the above

We would like to offer you a free site survey with a report and recommendations. We offer a pro rata payment plan where if you accept our recommendation you only pay the full price when we achieve our promised results. We can work with you to achieve the planned maintenance program by making components last longer by the strategic use of hard metals/ceramics.
