Troughing idlers are angled belt carrying rollers that provide a trough for the belt to carry bulk materials. The idlers are cylindrical rods that extend under and along the conveyor belt. The idler is comprised of a central idler roller with a fixed width and two or more wing idlers located on each side. The wing idlers can be adjusted up or down to change the troughing angle, affecting the depth of the trough created by the belt as it moves. The rollers themselves vary from 15 to 45 degrees.
Troughing idlers are suitable for high-load applications. Power Pack engineers will keep your specific applications in mind when they design the ideal troughing conveyor for your needs.
