ContiTech ROTAFRIX Friction Wheels, Rings and Pulleys
ROTAFRIX friction drive and anti-vibration wheels and rings are made of a special highly durable rubber compound. They are designed for drum drives and contact rolling drives. In drum drives, they perform two main tasks:
- They support the drums and the material inside, thus reducing vibrations.
- They transfer the energy needed to rotate the drum.
In use, they are characterized by long service life, low space requirements and easy installation.
ROTAFRIX® is a registered trademark for original friction drive wheels, rings and pulleys from ContiTech AG.
Wheels and Rings Fields of Use
ROTAFRIX friction rings and friction wheels are designed for rubber contact rolling drives for use in many areas of mechanical engineering.
They are used mainly in drum drives, mills, industrial laundries, lifting systems in shafts or transport technology.
Wheels and Rings Characteristics
- High frictional transmission forces
- Very high efficiency, high wear resistance
- Low-noise operation and long service life
- Easy installation and virtually maintenance-free operation
- Small installation dimensions and low bearing loads
ROTAFRIX friction wheels consist of an outer rubber part of 80 Shore A hardness and a metal body made of steel. They are available in sizes according to the ContiTech catalog.
ROTAFRIX friction rings are made of highly durable natural rubber of 73 Shore A hardness, or polychloroprene of 83 Shore A hardness. They contain wire reinforcement, which keeps the friction ring under constant tension and gives it a particularly firm fit on the wheel body. They are available in sizes according to the ContiTech catalog.
ROTAFRIX guide pulleys are made of highly durable natural rubber of 67 Shore A hardness. They contain a strength member that keeps the guide pulley under constant tension and gives it a particularly firm fit on the wheel body. In the FM finish, the strength member consists of steel reinforcing wires, in the FMH finish, the strength member consists of a steel ring. They are available in sizes according to the ContiTech catalog.
