Snapidle Belt Tensioner is a new approach to an age-old problem: "How to tension a belt drive?" Typically maintenance personnel over-tension belt drives at start up. The resulting wear on the belt and pulleys causes slippage. Past solutions have been to add maintenance, replace pulleys and belts, add some sort of mounted tensioning system, or replace the belt drive with another type drive system.
The NEW Snapidle Belt Tensioner is easy to install, requires no special tools or mounting brackets, and applies direct tension to the drive instantly, at a fraction of the tensioning force that is presently utilized. The Snapidle Belt Tensioner controls the belt by creating a minimum of fifty percent belt wrap. Extra wrap utilizes more of the pulling power of the belts and pulleys and reduces both belt and pulley wear.
"The first comment I would tell you about Snapidle Chain Tensioners is the first thing that all of the Engineering PE's tell me, it really works and there is no MATH! The second comment that I always say is that Snapidle will increase your chain life by 10 times, I have sold over 5000 SI-180 units into the worst possible environment, Waste Water (Sewer) Treatment Plants and I have never had a single one fail." -George Gephart of Gephart Industrial Sales, Denville New Jersey
