No-Crush Idler Wheels added to our Growing Product Line!

Now Introducing: No-Crush Idler Wheels!

No-Crush Idler Wheels utilize an Oilite SAE 841 Sintered Bronze as their core material. They are commonly referred to as Oilite Bushings or Oilite Sleeve Bearings. They are made from a profuse bronze material which is self lubricating. The primary purpose of No-Crush idler wheels is to rotate freely on a shaft and prevent the crushing or damaging of materials as they move on a conveyor line, or material passes by. By utilizing No-Crush Idler Wheels with superior ML6 Polyurethane, companies can increase the performance and longevity of their equipment or products which they come in contact with.

What are No-Crush Idler Wheels used for?

No-Crush Idler Wheels are commonly used for lower speeds or load applications. No-Crush Idler Wheels are designed to spin freely on a shaft and are a simpler, lower cost alternative to ball bearings. Generally, No-Crush Idler Wheels are ideal for the vast majority of applications that No-Crush Wheels would be used in.
