Among the many applications for RunRight tensioners, one of the most common is self-adjusting tensioning of roller chain or belt applications. Overtime, a chain or belt will elongate with use, and the RunRight tensioner, installed correctly, will automatically adjust to correct for slacking or sagging to enable longer and smoother system life.
Install RunRight tensioners on a rigid, flat and clean machine surface using the mounting bolt provided. The frictional contact between the tensioner housing and the machine surface is usually sufficient for proper installation. If the surface of the machine is uneven or highly corroded, a locking pin can be used at the positioning notch for a secure connection to a machine’s irregular surface.
