Timing Belt Tensioners

York has designed four types of tensioners in two sizes to give you a choice of stock solutions for your drive design or configure your own. Belt tensioners help you to achieve exact center distances with stock belt lengths. They Compensate for wear or slack in the belt and help to extend belt life and prevent slipping. Our tensioners are available in a flexible slot and pivot designs that work perfectly with any small drive. Our tensioners have a small foot print that drops right into your design. They are a cost effective solution and are ready to ship in 48 hours.
