ROSTA
Tensioning Technology
Chain Tensioning Roller chains are power transmission components with positive transmission which, by virtue of their design are subject, depending on quality, to elongation as a result of wear of 1 to 3 % of their total length. In spite of this elongation, due to aging, a roller chain transmits the occurring torques effectively providing it is periodically retensioned. Without tension adjustment, the slack side of the chain becomes steadily longer, oscillates and reduces the force transmitting wrap angle of the chain on the chain wheels. The chain no longer runs smoothly off the teeth of the chain wheels, producing uneven running of the entire drive and supporting wear (polygon effect). The service life of the chain drive can be extended considerably by the use of an automatic chain tension adjuster. The ROSTA tensioning element prevents the slack side of the chain from sagging or slapping by its automatic operation and very wide tensioning range for compensating this given elongation. The ROSTA tensioning element is based on the ROSTA rubber spring principle. According to application it is supplemented with the appropriate sprocket wheel or chain rider set for chain drives or with the belt roller or pulley in belt tensioner applications (see page 35 Product Range or page 40 Allocation Table). Assembling of the sprocket wheel and chain rider sets or the belt roller on the tensioning element is carried out on the customers side. Pretensioning With the ROSTA tensioning element the necessary travel and simultaneously the corresponding initial tension force can be accurately adjusted by a torsion angle scale and indicating arrow. Excessive initial pretensioning of the chain should be avoided in order to reduce the tensile force and surface pressure on the links. Vibration Damping The ROSTA tensioning element, based on a system of rubber springs, absorbs considerably the chain vibration due to internal molecular friction in the rubber inserts. The rubber spring effectively aborbs the vibrations, resulting from the polygon effect, which also positively influences the noise level of the complete chain drive. Installation The sprocket wheel or chain rider is installed in arm position normal or hard in the required position and secured with the supplied nuts. The laterally adjustable bearing on the thread permits simple and rapid adjustment of the wheel or rider to the chain track. The central fixing of the tensioning element with a single screw saves a great deal of time in installation. In addition, only one fixing hole is required on the machine side. On smooth, clean and torsionally rigid surfaces the resistance of the frictional contact between the tensioner housing and the machine element is a multiple of the maximum initial tensioning torque at 30. In almost all applications therefore, any additional securing of the tensioner housing can be dispensed. Only with rough, uneven or highly corroded mounting surfaces could the torsional resistance be insufficient on account of the point application nature of the frictional contact. In these exceptional cases we recommend the mounting of a locking pin through the positioning notch on to the machine structure.

ROSTA Tensioning Element Type SE, SE-G, SE-W
Page 37

The tensioning element with the specification SE (SE 11 to SE 50) is the mostly used standard unit for tensioning all kind of chain and belt drives. The elastomeric inserts based on a high elastic natural rubber with a good shape memory. This unit is designed for applications in temperatures from 40C to + 80C ( 40F to +180F). The tensioning element type SE-G (marked with yellow dot) has zinc-plated steel parts and therefore is specially designed for outdoor applications; e.g. for building machines. In addition, the type SE-G is equipped with oil resistant synthetic inserts for applications in oily areas, like in gear-boxes and crank-cases. The tensioning element type SE-W (marked with red dot) is equipped with heat resistant elastomeric inserts. It is developed for applications in temperatures from + 80C to +120C (+180F to + 250F), such as belt tensioners for diesel engines, chain tensioner in driers, belt scraper in hot surroundings, etc. Due to the characteristics of the elastomeric compound, the resulting tension pressure of the type SE-W reduces by 40 %, compared to the standard type SE and the type SE-G.

The ROSTA tensioning elements type SEI are all made out of stainless steel. They are available off-the-shelve in four different sizes: SEI 15, 18, 27, housing in SS casted version, SEI 40 (similar to SE 38), housing in SS welded version. The stainless steel quality complies with the DIN 1.4301 and AISI 304 specifications. These tensioning elements have been primarily designed for applications in the food industry and the chemical process technology.

Tensioner Devices

The ROSTA tensioning element type SE-F is designed for front mounting applications on blind frame structures. Rubber quality, tensioning pressure, material and surface protection are identical to the type SE. The special fixation screw with distance bushing is zinc-plated and secured in the housing by means of a rubber 0-ring.

ROSTA
Selection (sizing) of ROSTA Tensioner Type SE for V-Belt Drives
The required tensioner arm should have a pressure capacity of at least +100 % of the relevant belt testforce for the particular V-belt section (for multiple belt drives = x times belt number) a) Tension on back (side) of the belt with a flat roller (V-belt) The roller diameter should have at least 2/3 of the smaller pulley diameter. The roller width should be 20 % wider than the beltback; for multiple belt drives = + 20 % of the total beltback-widths. b) Tension from inside with grooved pulley The position of the tensioner pulley has to be closer at the driven pulley in order to avoid an important diminuition of the angle of circumference on the usually smaller drive-pulley. c) Selection of the ROSTA tensioner arm 1. Check the test force of the relevant belt section (e. g. type SPC = 90 N). 2. Multiply the test force with the quantity of belts (e. g. 5 section SPC-belts = 5 x 90 N = 450 N). 3. Add 100 % on the cumulated test force in order to avoid any belt slippage when starting up (e. g. 2 x 450 N = 900 N). 4. Select a ROSTA tensioner offering approx. 900 N at pretension angle of 20 (e. g. = SE 38 or SE 45). 5. Set the tensioner at a pretension angle of 25 on the slack of the belt drive (25 in order to compensate the initial important elongation).

ROSTA
Mounting Instructions

Tensioning of SE, SE-G and SE-W Bolt A is slightly tightened, the tensioning housing held with a position and turned in the required wrench. The bolt A is then tightened applying to the suitable torque MA.

Positioning, Angle Torsion Scale The angle torsion scale V on the tensioner housing always shows the pretensioning angle. The positioning notch P on the housing flange allows easy readjustment of the pretensioning level when a corresponding mark is set up on the support or the machine part.

Tensioning of SE-F For applications on blind frame structures. The adjustment of the tension is made as described for type SE, but final fixation with hexagonal key front bolt.

Chain Track The chain tension sprocket, as well as the chain rider, is held between 2 nuts C. The chain track can be set exactly by adjusting within the range R (see pages 41 and 42). Locknut B is always tight.

Central Fixing ROSTA tensioning elements are fitted centrally on a sufficiently strong, flat part of the machine. If a direct mounting is not possible, we recommend to use the support type WS (see page 27).

Z-Arrangement If chain tension sprockets/chain riders or tensioning rollers are mounted on the outside of the lever, the spacing Z should be as little as possible. The max. tension F must not then exceed 50 % = approx. 20 of pretension.

Tensioner Devices

ROSTA
Mounting Instructions

Normal Positioning The ROSTA tensioning elements are always positioned on the slack side of the chain. They should be fitted as close as possible to the big wheel and guide the chain from the outer side. The ideal position of the tensioning arm is nearly parallel to the chain drive.

Chain Engagement At least 3 teeth of the sprocket wheel must engage into the roller chain when tensioning the chain for the first time. The minimum number of engaged sprocket teeth between the tensioning wheel and chain strand is 3.

Tensioner Devices

V-belt Tensioner Inner Grooved Pulleys V-belt pulleys can be mounted as inner rollers at any position on the slack side of the V-belt (For drives with long axial distances and a high level of vibration we recommend to use pulleys with deep grooves).

V-belt Tensioner Outer Roller Please refer to the instructions of the belt manufacturer for further information on the belt structure when mounting our ROSTA belt tensioning elements with flat rollers on the back of the belt. Inner or outer tension rollers must be positioned as far away as possible from the next V-belt pulley the belt is guided to.

Mounting The chain tensioner must be adjusted in the axial and angular direction. The tensioning arm should be nearly in parallel position to the chain and in the direction of the chains drive. In case the chain drives are extremely long it is possible to fit several chain tensioners in order to obtain better tensioning and compensation.

Application Field of the SE-B Boomerang Tensioner In the past two or even three ROSTA tensioner type SE had to be installed on very long chain or belt drives to compensate the initial elongation. The new Boomerang with its distinguished elbow lever arm shape and the combination of two sprocket wheels or a V-belt pulley with a roller type R, offers a triple slack compensation on the loose drum than a standard tensioner.
