Belt Tracking Idlers for V-return Conveyor Systems

ASGCO announced a new addition to its line of Tru-Trainer conveyor belt tracking idlers. The Dual Return Tru-Trainer conveyor belt tracker is now available in a Vreturn style, developed to accommodate Vreturn conveyor systems that encounter excessive forces when utilizing high tension, overland style conveyor systems, which often operate with wide conveyor belts to accommodate heavy loads. The Tru-Trainer idlers react as the conveyor belt moves off center, maintaining the belt’s original position, minimizing belt wear and conveyor downtime.

According to the company, the V-Return Tru-Trainer incorporates an external central pivot mechanism, obviating the need for a single, large drum, and enabling a concentric and balanced rotation to be achieved. This, says ASGCO, results in extended bearing life and an effective, fast conveyor belt tracking system.
