Conveyor Belt Tensioners McMaster-Carr

Conveyor Belt Tensioners. A tensioner extends or retracts the conveyor pulley to adjust the tension on the conveyor belt. Mount to the sides of the conveyor and attach to the bearings that hold the pulley. Stainless steel tensioners are corrosion resistant. Note: Two tensioners and two bearings (sold separately) are required.

Should You Tighten the Conveyor Belt? Understanding

Nov 27, 2018 A conveyor belt with too much tension can lead to excessive wear on parts such as bearings and shafts. The extra pressure can also cause the pulleys to break and wear down prematurely. Tracking problems can also arise leading to uneven belt wear and, if not addressed, many additional issues with the conveyor.

Belt Tensioning Methods for Small Package Conveyor

May 28, 2021 J ack-screw t ension is the most common belt tensioning mechanism. How does it work? As shown in the figure below (Figure A), the tension on the belt is accomplished by turning the screw at the end of a conveyor. This pushes the bearing block towards the end of the conveyor, which adds tension to the belt.
