SpanTech Introduces The New Low Profile Idler Assembly
GLASGOW, KY: SpanTech LLC in Glasgow, Kentucky, USA, has introduced the Low Profile Idler Assembly as a valuable and versatile new option in our Designer System® family of conveyor solutions. The slim design of the Low Profile Idler, with a nose diameter of only 3-1/2 inches, in many cases can eliminate the need for transfer devices at conveyor infeed/discharge interfaces. Product as small as 4 inches can be transferred without stalling and without the use of a transfer bridge. The small profile height also allows the clearances required for stacked conveyors to be reduced. Existing conveyors can be retrofitted with the Low Profile Idler as a direct replacement for the previous equipment. Maintenance is simplified, thanks to the single-bolt removal capability of the Idler Wearstrip ("Horseshoe"). And in conjunction with the SpanTech Intermediate Drive Unit, Low Profile Idlers may be used at both ends of the conveyor.
