Anti-Runback Idler in Conveyor Systems

An anti-runback idler is a type of idler used in conveyor systems to prevent the conveyor belt from moving in the opposite direction. It is different from other idlers because it has a built-in mechanism that allows the idler to rotate freely in one direction but not in the other direction. This prevents the conveyor belt from rolling backward, which can cause damage to the system and create safety hazards. Anti-runback idlers are mainly used in inclined conveyor systems, such as those found in mining operations, where the force of gravity can cause the belt to roll backward. They are a good idler choice for these applications because they provide an additional layer of safety and prevent damage to the system. Anti-runback idlers are typically installed at an angle of 20-30 degrees and work with the conveyor belt by rotating freely in the forward direction but locking in the opposite direction to prevent the belt from moving backward. The benefits of anti-runback idlers include increased safety, reduced downtime due to damage, and improved overall system efficiency.
