Shaft Design conveyor drive pulley

is a function of the tension on the low side of the belt the coefficient of friction and the wrap angle It is typical of conveyor system to have a tensioner on the low side of the belt tight control of the wrap angle and at times the use of several drive pulleys one after the other Using the cosine rule we can arrive at the total combined force
