K-Self Aligning Conveyor Idlers from Kinder & Company are used to overcome belt miss-tracking whilst maximising consistency in belt tracking. They are suitable for both trough and return applications.
Designed to match existing belt profiles and constructed with the used of a central pivot bearing, these K-Self Aligning Conveyor Idlers’ goal in achieving proper and consistent belt tracking is to guarantee a safe, consistent, trouble-free and economical conveyor system operation.
The potential cause for many problems associated with conveying of bulk materials is the misalignment of conveyor belts.
The most popular is the “pivoting base style” The outboard servo rollers cause the idler frame to pivot as they contact the belt edge and this swivel action causes the belt to automatically realign.
When considering the effects of conveyor miss-alignment, the cost and time consequences of required manpower to correct the situation or the spillage are apparent.
