that support the belt once it has been loaded. They convey the material down the belt preventing it from sagging, stretching or falling off. The conveyor idler typically comprises of a steel frame and one to five rolls depending on its application.Different types of conveyor idlersThere are two major types of conveyor idlers: return idlers and carrying idlers. Return idlers are made to support an empty belt while carrying belts are designed to support a belt with a load. Carrying idlers are also known as trough idlers. They consist of a three equal sized rolls and a welded steel frame.
