What is Load Carrying Capacity of Conveyor Rollers?

Updated: May 5, 2020

Why this question? It is the load that a roller can bear? Yes. But still there are confusions during the


selection of rollers. Novice often make a mistake in understanding the concept behind load carrying of


conveyor rollers.

What is so special about that? One has to understand that the load-carrying capacity of a roller is


distributive and not concentric. It means that if a roller is having length 500mm is given load-carrying capacity as 50Kg, it implies that


you can put a load on the 500mm equally and at once. It is a distributive load.

If you put the weight of 50kg on any small portion of the roller say 100mm, is not allowed. it is concentric


load.​
