 Tru Trac Belt Tracking System

Tru-Trac Flat Return Tracker

The Tru-Trac employs a unique and highly effective tracking action, which is non-damaging to the belt and kicks-in immediately if the belt begins to drift off centre. Because it does not rely on contact with the belt edge in order to guide the belt, belt edge damage, which occurs frequently with other tracking systems, is avoided.

Features and Benefits

  • Easy installation
  • Low maintenance
  • Vibration free rolling action
  • Simple design
  • No contact with edge of belt
  • Operates in all conditions
  • Operates on reversible belts
  • Can be installed inside or underneath belt
  • Manufactured according to SABS standards

Non standard trackers can be made to customer specifications

Tru-Trac  Return Tracker

For the alignment of the return side of the conveyor belt.

The Dual Return Tracker was developed to accommodate the excessive force encountered with wide belts and heavy loads. An external central pivot mechanism was designed, obviating the need for a single, large drum, and enabling a concentric and balanced rotation to be achieved. Obviously, this results in extended bearing life and a very fast and effective tracking system.

Two separate tapered rolls are mounted onto the pivot mechanism, which can be individually replaced as wear occurs. The same award winning features that go into the Flat Return Tracker have been incorporated in the Dual Return Tracker.

Features and Benefits

  • Specifically designed for high speed, aggressive conveyor belts having a high capital cost
  • Rollers can be individually replaced
  • Easy installation
  • Low maintenance
  • Vibration free rolling action
  • Simple design
  • No contact with belt edge
  • Operates in all conditions
  • Manufactured according to SABS standards

Non standard trackers can be made to customer specifications.

Heavy Duty Dual Return Tracker 
with Polyurethane lagging and Thrust & Roller Bearings


For the alignment of the return side of the Heavy and Extra Heavy Duty conveyor applications.

This tracker is designed to operate and last in severe conditions,for high speed belts 5m/s and upwards, heavy duty steel cord conveyor belts 20mm or thicker, high tension belts and aggressive materials like iron ore and coal ash.

The Polyurethane lagging has proven to give exceptionally good life in hard wearing applications.
The Poly Lagging is available in Standard Blue 12mm or High Abbrasive Red 19mm

Thrust & Roller bearings do an excellent job of handling the excessive side forces. 
And with a enhanced sealing system it can stand up to the most aggressive environments.

Also available with Greasable bearings, for really extreme conditions.

 
 
Tru-Trac Trough Tracker - conveyor belt tracking system, troughing idler

For the alignment of the load carrying side of the conveyor belt.

The Trough Tracker roller was specifically developed to accommodate the load-carrying side of the conveyor belt. Obviously, due to the throughed nature of this side of the conveyor belt, a different tracking configuration was required. Wing rollers were incorporated into the design to activate our standard central pivot system. The activating wing rolls are set to have a maximum effective contact between the belt edge and the wing roller of 25°-55° (instead of the usual 90°), and are compatible with all throughed belts from 15°-45°. These wing rolls are set to miss the edge of the existing throughed conveyor by between 5mm-10mm on either side. As the conveyor belt moves off-centre the conveyor belt slides up the wing roll and thus causes the Tru-Trac to pivot on its internal pivot and steer the conveyor belt back to centre with minimum force. The unique aspect of the Tru-Trac Trough Tracker roller is that the centre roll does all the steering and not the wing rolls, as this is where the most effective steering forces are exerted.

The Tru-Trac series of conveyor belt tracking idlers are a patented design that offers the most reliable and re-active tracking idlers available today. Its stainless steel internal pivot that is perpendicular to the plane of the belt and its rubber covered shell and tapered ends helps actuate the trainer immediately as the conveyor belt moves off center. It is always reacting to keep the conveyor belt centered. It does not wait, like conventional trainers, for the conveyor belt to walk over to 90-degree sensor rollers and then have the belt react. The Tru-Trainer reacts as the belt tracker moves off center it will contact the tapered section of the roller on that side of the conveyor belt. The effect of this will be to force the roller to rotate on its central pivot causing the belt to come back to its original position (centered).

  • Continuous Alignment – by always tracking the conveyor belt to the center of the conveyor, it reduces edge damage, spillage and overall better conveyor belt tracking performance.
  • Heavy-Duty - design of our trainer uses 3 7/16” bearings, 1 ¾” shaft, and an abrasive resistant hot-vulcanized rubber cover. Urethane and ceramic covers are also available.
  • Patented Design – does not rely on the conveyor belt to activate an arm-type tracking mechanism. By utilizing an internal pivot versus external pivot it does NOT build up with carry back.
  • Reactionary – in both wet and dry conditions as seen in below ground and above ground mining all over the world.
  • Total Satisfaction Guarantee (TSG) – to solve your conveyor belt tracking problems and make your overall conveyor system run more efficiently.

Features and Benefits of the Trough Tracker roller

  • Easy installation
  • Low maintenance
  • Vibration free rolling action
  • Simple design
  • Finger tip movement under load
  • No 90 contact with belt edge
  • Operates in all conditions
  • Manufactured according to SABS standards

Non standard trackers can be made to customer specifications
