Impact Idlers

Wherever material is loaded onto a conveyor belt, impact idlers are installed beneath the troughed belt over the full loading length. Impact Idlers comprise a small diameter shell, fitted with concentric rubberized rings at close intervals. These rubber rings provide a cushioning effect in the event of lumps of material falling onto the belt where an idler is located beneath the point of impact. This cushioning ability of impact idler sets allows the energy associated with the impact to be absorbed more efficiently and with much less detrimental effect to the belt. Impact idler rolls are either mounted into rigid, fixed base frames or can be manufactured in garland-type sets, depending on the application.
