Gates has a complete line of idler/tensioner pulleys for V-ribbed and V-shaped belt drives.
Made of steel and thermoplastic, Gates DriveAlign idler/tensioner pulleys provide excellent wear resistance, heat dissipation and dampening. They resist dust, grit, salt, and other contaminants that reduce pulley life. The extra long life bearings are designed to operate under high temperatures and exhibit less wobble. Gates idler pulleys also reduce wear, vibration and friction on belts, thereby extending belt service life.
The pulleys are capable of handling high rim speeds and shock loads due to their tensile strength of 65,000 psi. Further, they can be used for rim speeds up to 8,000 rpm or higher, depending on the configuration of the pulley. Only premium, high-temperature grease is used, and it is held in place by high-temperature polyacrylic seals.
Made of premium materials for longer wear life and higher load capacity.
Designed to operate under severe conditions and provide greater reliability.
Built with premium bearings and seals that can operate at higher temperatures.
