Cable Conveyor Tensioning Options
Pneumatic Tensioning Device
Pneumatic tensioning devices are used for managing cable tension. This is essential to the overall function, dependability, longevity, and power of Cablevey’s tubular cable and disc drag conveyor systems. If tension setting is too low, the cable can become disengaged from sprocket causing a malfunction in the system. If cable tension becomes too high, excess friction can cause greater wear, energy usage and other problems with your system.
5 Reasons to Use a Pneumatic Tensioning Device
Cablevey Conveyors has improved methods for managing cable tension. Improvements make it easier to control tension more accurately. This is accomplished by replacing the stainless steel springs with a pneumatic cylinder that proved the same, accurate cable tension over its entire rage of travel. Other advantages of a pneumatic tensioning device include:
