The roll ring tensioner design is very simplistic yet extremely beneficial and useful. Everything from the base material to the durable construction and design has been heavily engineered to produce the maximum performance. USA Roller Chain and Sprockets prides its self as a source for the Roll Ring Tensioner. Not only do we have a direct US inventory, we have extremely competitive and fair pricing. These tensioners are available for roller chains in compliance with DIN 8187, ISO 05B-1 to ISO 20B-1, as well as ANSI B29.1 #35 - #100 side chains. Something else notable about this chain tensioner is that is it resistant to ultra violet rays, radiation, abrasive environments, and does not change chemically in vacuum environments. apart from others The below chart shows the standard roll ring tensioner sizes, each part number is a direct clickable link to the product page its self.
Just Use Multiple Roll-Rings For Multi-Strand Chains
Material Information/ Wear Life: The material of the roll ring chain tensioner is a high-capacity elastics that consists of a hard yet flexible framework. The forming of roll rings consists of three components; elastic, viscous-elastic, and plastic one. The elastic component determines tension when in use. They are constructed in a way that the forming takes place in the elastic range only. When it comes to wear life, the roll ring tensioner is probably the longest lasting chain tensioner in the industry. When testing a new unused roll ring tensioner in comparison to one that had been in normal operation for 31,500 hours (both were from the same batch), the used roll ring only reflects a spring constant that is 3% higher after 31,50 operating hours. There are no indications that point to the end of the tensioners life due to normal wear and tear from operating. The image below on the left is a cut out from the used roll ring tensioner while the image on the right is a cut out of the unused tensioner. Please note that this specific tensioner was tested and used at the Frankfurt main air port luggage conveyor.
Application Examples: The Roll Ring Tensioner has been successfully used in a wide range of applications including printing machines, air ports, cleaning systems, breweries, aluminum processing plants, power plants, sand blasting machines, agriculture, mining, and so much more!
Configuration Examples: Something else that really sets the roll ring tensioner apart from other roller chain tensioners is the wide range of installation configurations for it. This makes it extremely versatile in non standard applications and can save time, money, and headache when engineering a new drive or when looking for a chain tensioner that will meet your exact needs.
