A superior pitch

Printer-friendly version

New from Superior Industries, an idler that is designed to protect belts against sharp transitions, extending their wear life and preventing damaging spillage. The variable-pitch idler is manufactured with adjustable outside rollers. Depending on the application and transition point, the rollers adjust from 5 to 35°.

Variable-pitch idlers are most effective when used at terminal belt transition points or on convex bends to help tighten the sealing system. They are available both inline and offset in CEMA C, D and E ratings and feature Superior’s SpinGuard seal technology, adding extra protection to the bearings. Roll diameter dimensions range from 4 in. to 7 in. with belt widths of 24 in. to 96 in.
