ASGCO Food Grade Tru-Trainer Lightweight Belt Tracker

Corrects Belt Slippage And Premature Wear

ASGCO®’s Food Grade Tru-Trainer® training idler is designed and proven for training lightweight conveyor belting in the food and material handling industries.

  • MSHA approved for mine use – meets all requirements for flame resistant solid products taken into mines. Acceptance Marking No. MSHA IC -174/2
  • Increase Productivity – by delivering increased traction between the conveyor belt and pulley, and increasing pulley life and reducing buildup.
  • Improved Conveyor Belt Tracking – due to the Arrowhead patterns self-cleaning ability, which reduces material carry-back build up and thereby eliminates the major source of misalignment.
  • Superior Wear – ability in abrasive or highly wet or dry applications as seen in below ground and above ground mining.
  • Bonding Strength – that is superior to others, due to 3mm of our neoprene compound vulcanized into bottom-side of the lagging.
  • Easy Installation – can be done in place, on plant site, at your local distributor or at the pulley manufacturer. Each roll is ½” or ¾” thick x 10” wide by 21.3’ long. 300’ (90m) long rolls will be available in January of 2006.

Food Grade Tru-Trainer Features & Benefits

  • Designed and proven for tracking lightweight conveyor  belting in the food and material handling industries
  • Internal pivot provides fast reaction  to track the conveyor belt to the center of the system.
  • Rubber covered and tapered ends  provide self-cleaning and high coefficient of friction to train the belt
  • Easy installation  and no maintenance
  • Vibration free  rolling action
  • Simple design  few moving parts
  • No contact with belt edge
  • Works on reversing belts
  • Operates in all conditions – wet and dry conveyors

The Tru-Trainer® idler has a patented internal pivot that is perpendicular to the plane of the belt. Since the surface of the belt remains in contact with the roller over the entire width of the belt, the training action is far more effective than the conventional style of training idlers. As the belt starts to move off-center it will contact the tapered section of the roller on that side of the belt. The effect of this will be to force the roller to pivot on its central pivot causing the belt to come to its original position. Once the roller has steered the conveyor belt back to the center, the opposite side of the belt will contact the taper on the opposite ends of the idler and this will cause the idler to realign itself perpendicular to the belt.

Can We Help?

We would like to offer you a free site survey with a report and recommendations. We offer a pro rata payment plan where if you accept our recommendation you only pay the full price when we achieve our promised results.

We can work with you to achieve the planned maintenance program by making components last longer by the strategic use of hard metals/ceramics.
