The Guidler®, a
Guide Idler and Conveyor Belt Tracking Guide, was developed during World War II to
assure reliable Belt Conveyor Tracking while handling ore, coal, cement,
aggregate, salt, sugar etc.
refinements over the past 70 plus years by the Knapp family has resulted
in the Guidler's use world-wide by multiple industries. Improvements
have only been incremental - proof that the original design was almost
perfect in every respect.
The Guidler was
awarded highest honors as the world's best Guide Idler and Conveyor Belt Tracking Guide
at the International Inventors Exposition in Brussels, Belgium. It is
in use on all six continents and recognized world-wide as the premier
device of it's kind. It is available in non-corrosive materials on special
Attempts to control
tracking with a conventional cylindrical guide idler or typical conveyor belt tracking guide are usually unsatisfactory
because the lateral forces acting on the belt exceed the belt's resistance
to curling as it makes point contact with the guide. Severe belt damage
is the result.
properly inclined 30° in direction of belt travel our Guide Idler and Conveyor Belt Tracking Guide provides:
to 4" of straight line contact to absorb lateral belt loads and
eliminate edge curl.
entrapment to prevent climb-over as is common when using cylindrical
movement of up to 5/8" to accommodate belt heave and oscillation.
American manufacture assuring long life and zero maintenance.
