We’re one of just a few conveyor manufacturers that design and build our own line of components. While a conveyor’s structural steel can be weighed and replicated, the belting is often outsourced to the lowest-bidding offshore supplier. That’s why we shed our blood, sweat and tears developing and manufacturing premium conveyor parts.
It’s the uniqueness and problem-solving characteristics of Superior idlers, pulleys and other homemade accessories that truly set apart Superior conveyors.
We like to say we use our own ingredients in our cooking … and doesn’t it always taste better when you grow it yourself?
Idlers are to conveyors as foundations are to buildings: a constant, reliable support.
Maximum pulley life is essential to cost-efficient material handling and high-capacity production.
Exterra® Belt Cleaners
Together, primary and secondary belt scrapers will remove at least 90% of all carryback material.
A conveyor’s load zone — also known as its transfer zone — is the most suspect to maintenance issues.
In this industry, nothing is more important than the safety of your crews.
The rest of our conveyor parts that don’t fall into one of the load zone, safety or belt cleaner categories, are listed here.

Idlers That Last 3x Longer
in Tough Situations
Not long ago, idlers were simply separated by thickness, width and weight. Other than the paint color, originality didn’t really exist.
Then, Superior invented application-specific seals to extend idler life in tough conditions like wet, dry, overland and slurry.
