Patented steel can trough and return idlers include two tapered roller bearings in each hub (4 per idler) for significantly longer service life. Made with universal shafts, the product fits into any brackets, making them ideal for any material handling environment where conveyors and rollers are utilized. The design allows the re-use of the axle assembly. Because there is no welding on the idler assembly, any damaged parts can be replaced in minutes. The product is available in 5-in., 6-in. and 7-in. diameters with standard shell thickness of 3/16 in. and 1/4 in. Standard rollers include 3/4-in. bearings, while heavy duty rollers are equipped with 1 1/4-in. bearings. They are available for belt widths of 18 in. to 96 in., with an optional polyurethane coating. An inner support tube ensures hubs are independent of each other for smoother operation and longer life. Stainless steel shafts are available for corrosive applications.
