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.
SpinGuard® Seal Technology
Superior’s patented, next-generation SpinGuard Idler Seals offer greater protection in applications known to expose idler bearings to fugitive material prematurely.
Application-specific seal configurations have 5+ years of testing in lab and field settings. Production lead times for idlers outfitted with these special seals are competitive to idlers with traditional seals.
“When more water goes into the wheel than sand, some of that water ends up on the belt, and that just eats away at those idler rollers. The constant rubbing acts like sandpaper on the metal. Material can get into the bearings pretty easily – but with the Titanium rollers, we no longer have that issue.”

Superior’s chief engineer of conveyor components describes each seal design and covers the development testing process.
Four NEW Idler Seal Options–
And Where to Use Them
Wash or dredge processes.
Special double contact seal defends bearing from moisture penetration.
Crushing and screening producing dust with minimal fines.
Oiled and contact seals protect bearing from dry particles and grit.
Overland or long distance material handling sites.
Seal reduces drag and roll resistance for less horsepower at startup /operation.
Washed sand, fines removal or dredging. Most extreme conditions.
