The correct choice of chain tensioner

Smooth running is a decisive factor for the long lifetime of a chain. We therefore recommend the use of a chain tensioner with a slide profile. Advantage: Protects the chain links and provides a quieter, safer movement.

We are happy to provide detailed advice if you inform us of the required criteria. Please use our design questionnaires to fill in all required data.
