The patented Link-Belt® truss frame idler for CEMA D load requirements is dimensionally interchangeable with all CEMA C/D series idlers and features a lightweight frame member that is fabricated from round bar stock to reduce the frame weight by 50%. An added benefit of this truss frame design is a 40% increase in load rating as compared to the conventional CEMA D inverted angle frame. The design of the frame, with rounded surfaces and the lowest roll gap available (0.25”), ensures against costly material spillage buildup around the idler that may impede production. The Link-Belt truss idler is available in a variety of materials: 304SS, 316SS, and carbon steel. This is especially critical in today’s markets for the handling of harsh chemicals, phosphate, salt, acids, and many other corrosive materials that tend to shorten the life of your equipment. For these caustic applications we complete the offering by placing the premium HDPE polyethylene rollers into the stainless-steel or carbon steel frames. The polyethylene rollers greatly extend the life of your belt conveyor equipment while reducing costly maintenance and downtime.
Whether your goal is to reduce equipment weight or to extend the life of equipment that is subjected to harsh material handling environment, the Link-Belt truss frame idler is your ultimate solution.
