Rubber Rolls

Pound for Pound

In a troughing position, rubber idlers are typically utilized at the tail end of the conveyor, because they absorb any shock caused by falling material. Without rubber-coated rolls in these transition zones, belting will prematurely wear.

In a conveyor belt’s return position, rubber rolls shed sticky material to help prevent belt tracking issues. Secondly, rubber also generates more friction between the roll and the belt to grip the belt more effectively for better belt tracking.

Lastly, rubber will not break down as quickly as steel in corrosive environments.
