Tensioners and Tighteners


43 products found

Tensioners and tighteners are devices that apply force to help maintain proper tension of belts and chains and prevent damage to drive system components. Automatic tensioners keep chains and belts taut to prevent them from slipping and breaking, help minimize wear on shaft and drive bearings, and absorb shock and vibration. Drive tighteners, also called drive tensioners, are attached to an idler sprocket or pulley with a tightener shaft and used to manually adjust the tension on chains and belts. Belt and chain guides are used in conveyor belt applications to guide belts and chains and keep them aligned while helping reduce friction and wear.
