Elite Roller Manufacturing has introduced new trough and return idlers which the company says last up to three times longer than traditional idlers on packing lines.

Cincinnati-based Elite’s patented steel can trough and return idlers include two tapered roller bearings in each hub for significantly longer life, according to a company news release.

The new idlers are made with universal shafts, which fit any manufacturer’s brackets, making them ideal for industries where conveyors and rollers are utilized.
