Tensioners and Tighteners
Drive tensioners or tighteners help maintain proper tension levels, placement, and movement for machinery and accessories such as drive belts and chains. Reduce the risks from power surges and minimize wear with a chain or belt tensioners. Use belt guides and chain guides in conveyor applications to keep belts and chains running in a clean straight line. Chain and belt tensioners help extend belt and chain life. Tensioners, including self-adjusting and floating chain tensioners, help minimize wear on shaft and drive bearings and include elastomeric components to provide shock and vibration absorption. Drive tighteners provide controlled tensioning in drives to eliminate shock loading through excessive chain vibration and horsepower loss through slippage. Use tightener shafts with idlers and drive tighteners to tighten and stretch worn-out equipment. Get your power transmission tensioners and tighteners at Grainger today.
