Belt TensioningWhite Paper: Belt Tensioning Methods for Small Package Conveyors


Small package belt conveyors are used for thousands of applications in countless industrial markets. 


Although these conveyors are small and their loads are generally light, they still require preventative maintenance (PM) to ensure proper performance and provide for optimal life.  One important PM procedure that can save money in repair costs and maintain productivity levels is proper belt tensioning.  Improper belt tension can lead to a variety of resource-draining maintenance problems, including: 

  • Poor or inconsistent belt tracking    
  • Over-tensioning, causing poor belt life    
  • Over-tensioning, causing poor bearing life        
  • Under-tensioning, causing belt slippage


This white paper provides an overview of the most commonly used methods for adjusting belt tension on small package conveyors and the primary advantages and disadvantages of each method.
We're here to help you turn the factory of today into the factory of tomorrow - The Smart Factory.
