Flexco launches belt trainer for conveyor tracking

Flexco has released the PTEZ Belt Trainer tracking idler for its line of belt trainers. Designed with the company’s “Pivot and Tilt” feature, it can be used in any application that requires tracking to prevent damage to the belt or conveyor structure, including single-direction and reversing belts.

The Pivot and Tilt feature ensures that the belt stays away from the structure and the material stays on the belt without the use of sensor or edge rollers. The tapered ends on the roller drive the pivot and tilt mechanism, allowing the two forces to quickly move the belt back to centre.

The belt trainer can be used on vulcanised or mechanically fastened belts in almost any medium-duty application, including wet and dry conditions, belts with edge damage or wear, and belts that are mistracking to one or both sides.

Available for belt widths between 450 mm to 1200 mm, the belt trainer can be mounted as a standard “pull-up” mounting or on the clean side of the return side of a cupped belt. The adjustable mounting brackets ensure quick and accurate installation.

The belt trainer also features a polyurethane roller cover, which ensures a lasting performance in even in tough conditions.
