Universal Chain Tensioners
Universal chain tensioners are automatic tensioners for tensioning of chains during operation.
They consist of a lever that is flexibly mounted between two squares and attached to the base of the machine. The elastic part consists of rubber elastic segments. Tensioning pulleys of the chains or a sliding block are attached to the lever with a screw.
It is a universal flexible element that can simultaneously perform the functions of suspension, guidance, tensioning and damping.
Roller chain tensioner elements consisting of a sliding segment made of a special highly resistant and abrasion-resistant plastic and a screw for attaching to the lever of the universal tensioner.
Roller chain tensioner elements consisting of one, two or three tensioning pulleys according to the type of chain and a screw for attaching to the lever of the universal tensioner.
- FE tensioning arm with central screw for external mounting
- OVR tensioning sliding block
- Fixing screw with nut and washer
Tensioners Fields of Use
Universal chain tensioners are designed for tensioning of common industrial roller chains in all industries.
Typical application is small and medium-sized roller chains – for conveyors, roller conveyors, handling equipment, construction machinery, in the woodworking industry, packaging machines or in the food industry.
