HC series

The HC series idlers are produced using proprietary manufacturing techniques that allow adjustment of the bearing end-play setting to precise engineered specifications, providing absolute consistency roll to roll.

The 3/4”modified geometry automotive-class tapered roller bearing idler roll features an advanced five-stage seal design that ensures long operation life without re-lubrication:

  • An exterior shield provides an initial barrier to divert contaminants away from bearing cavity.
  • A flinger employs natural centrifugal forces to redirect potential contaminants away from the bearing cavity.
  • A grease-filled labyrinth seal retards lateral movement of contaminants.
  • A contact lip seal provides additional sealing protection and keeps lubricant in the bearing cavity.
  • A rear seal provides added protection for the grease reservoir.

The HC series idlers feature the following:

  • Counter-bored roll shell, protected weld
  • Available in sealed only

Our HC series idlers are available in the following configurations:

  • Troughing
  • V-return
  • Troughing training
  • Return training

H-Plus series (regreasable)

The H-Plus series idler is a heavy-duty, regreasable idler.

The H-Plus series idlers feature the following:

  • Adjusting nut: provides additional protection to seal area and establishes a very precise bearing adjustment
  • Extra-heavy die-formed bracket: designed with super-wide base and direct mounting to end angle
  • Inverted angle base: self-cleaning design helps eliminate roll and belt damage from material buildup

Additional H-Plus series idler features include:

  • Combination lip and labyrinth seal: unique, precision die-cast nut and triple horizontal labyrinth seal provide three baffles to keep contaminants out. The lip seal contacts the precision zinc die-cast surface to provide maximum seal integrity.
  • Modified geometry tapered roller bearings: provide more bearing contact area than ball bearings, spreading the load over a larger area to relieve stress and enhance bearing life under heavy loads and impact.

Our H-Plus idlers are available in the following configurations:

  • Troughing
  • Troughing training
  • Return rolls
  • Rubber disc return roll
  • Return training
