ASGCO announced a new addition to its line of Tru-Trainer conveyor belt tracking idlers. The Dual Return Tru-Trainer conveyor belt tracker is now available in a V-return style, developed to accommodate V-return conveyor systems that encounter excessive forces when utilizing high tension, overland style conveyor systems, which often operate with wide conveyor belts to accommodate heavy loads. The Tru-Trainer idlers react as the conveyor belt moves off center, maintaining the belt’s original position, minimizing belt wear and conveyor downtime.

According to the company, the V-Return Tru-Trainer incorporates an external central pivot mechanism, obviating the need for a single, large drum, and enabling a concentric and balanced rotation to be achieved. This, says ASGCO, results in extended bearing life and an effective, fast conveyor belt tracking system.
