Scrap belt re-alignment

Retro C: Scrap belt re-alignment

Realignment of the scrap belt can be a tedious process.

1. Tension the belt down well. The belt should be snug on the top of the rollers on both ends. There shouldn’t be a gap lifting up.

  • The tension bolts need to be fairly close to the same length.
  • Set the drive side at a measured length so the threaded rods are the same
  • Then do most of the adjustment on the idler side.
  • If the belt is moving to the right you have two choices extend the right threaded rod or loosen the left one. Note: It is best to over correct for a couple turns and then relieve it after the belt gets in the correct position.
  • The goal is to get it to track on the idler end while keeping it centered on the drive end.
  • After the belt is tracking correctly on the idler end there may be adjustments required to the drive end to center the belt.
