Belt Idlers & Tensioners
As belts wear they stretch and the initial tension is lessened and could slip resulting in lower horsepower. Belt idlers and tensioners provide a form of take-up that is used to restore the drive to its original tension. Manufacturing the industry's best belt idlers, B&B Manufacturing® offers a diverse line of idler sprocket & wheels, frequently found conveyors or material handling applications. As chains wear, they are also elongated and could result in increased vibration and bearing wear. Tensioners are designed to operate in all directions and adjust easily as tension requirements change. Proper tensioning allows drives to run smoother, quieter, more efficiently, and with less wear.
Precision manufacturing in several styles and sizes for custom and standard applications.
Increase the life of your equipment through smooth drive power with the use of a drive tensioner.
