Conveyor Belt Idler

- Mar 21, 2019-

As a knowledge engineering company, SKF recently announced that its new SKF idler sound monitoring device has been put into use. This easy-to-use handheld monitoring device detects belt idler failure early.

     This also becomes a common cause of belt damage and downtime due to the belt idler supporting the length of the belt. The SKF idler sound monitoring device detects belt idler failure early, avoiding expensive belt maintenance costs, product loss and risk to workers.


The SKF idler sound monitoring device uses the advanced enveloping envelope technology to distinguish the sound difference between the intact idler and the faulty idler even in an unusually noisy environment. This device is more advanced in time than the manual operation of listening or observing, and it is safer and more reliable.


SKF idler sound monitoring devices are commonly used in heavy industry applications such as aggregates, cement, metal ores, coal processing industries, etc. It is also suitable for testing conveyors in steel mills, pulp and paper mills, and other material handling systems such as airport baggage handling.
