  • Cushioning
  • Hold-down
  • Guide rollers
  • Belt scrapers
  • Brake bars
  • Cleaning brushes

features

  • Chain and belt life is increased as much as 30% by eliminating slap and vibration, while minimizing drive bearing and shaft wear
  • Self-adjusting
  • no periodic adjustments are necessary
  • Because of the elastomeric elements, the tensioner has the capacity to absorb shock loads and vibrations in the drive
  • Simple to mount, with only one bolt required to do so, and has 360° positioning flexibility
  • Maintenance-free
  • since the tensioner uses no metal-to-metal connections, no lubrication is required
  • provides silent operation
  • Dirt and grime will not affect operation, so it can be used indoors or out from -40 °F to 180 °F (-40 °C to 80 °C)
  • Check to be certain that the idler sprocket or pulley will still clear the space available between the base housing and the mounting hole
  • Note: Idlers, sprockets and pulley accessories are available online
