Belt tensioner for European market

GEMEX belt tensioning systems – the standard in many process industries worldwide – are now available from Weir Minerals across Europe (Fig.). The hydraulically adjustable and mechanically lockable motor platforms allow belts to be checked and changed rapidly by removing the need to re-align the motor each time. The addition follows Weir Minerals’ acquisition of ­Sweden-based Gema Industri AB, the developer of the GEMEX system at the beginning of 2012. Monty Riemann, Gemex product manager at Weir Minerals, said: “The GEMEX belt tensioning system removes one of the only down-sides to belt-drive systems – the time consuming process of changing worn out belts – by ensuring that alignment is only done once on installation. The drive transmission is a critical cog in any process and downtime can be very costly.”
