SKF Belt tensioner system

Fast, easy solution for belt maintenance

Belt tensioner unit
Once the SKF Belt Tension System is installed, belt adjustment and belt replacement can be done in minutes while keeping the required precision for alignment and belt tension. Checking the belt tension is reduced to connecting a handheld hydraulic pump, reading the pressure on the gauge and adjusting the pressure to the initially taken pressure, if necessary.

Unique function enables several benefits

The SKF Belt Tension System enables controlled moving of the motor axis by hydraulic cylinders. With a handheld hydraulic pump, the cylinders of the SKF Belt Tension System are moved upwards or downwards. Increasing or releasing the hydraulic pressure moves the motor and increases or releases the belt tension, which is directly related to the pressure in the cylinders.
