Low drag frames

In addition to our standard range of idler frames, low-drag versions are available.  These low-drag frames provide high roller alignment to minimize friction losses.

By reducing frictional drag, both capital and operational savings can be made. Capital cost reductions come through the reduced power and tension required to drive the conveyor. Operational savings come from the reduced power consumption and reduced roller wear rates.

Self-aligning frames

In addition to our standard range of idler frames, self-aligning versions are available.  These self-aligning frames improve belt tracking in problem areas. 

Standard frames

We offer a variety of idler frame options, including the following:

Carry Idler

The carry idlers provide the primary support for the carry side of the belt and the material being conveyed.

V-return idler

V-return idlers assist with belt training on the return belt and are ideal for long, overland conveyors.

Impact idler

Impact idlers are utilized in the loading area and are designed to absorb shock and help protect your conveyor belt.

Transition idler

Adjustable transition idlers from 5 to 35 degrees are available to transition your conveyor belt at the pulley.

Self-aligning idler and return

Troughing idlers and return idlers, in a variety of configurations, are available for belt training.

Picking/feeding idler

Extended center roll idlers are available with steel and/or impact rolls for a variety of CEMA classifications.

Rubber disc return

Return idlers and self-aligning idlers are available to help prevent wet and sticky material buildup on the return side of the belt.
