Take-up systems are used to adjust conveyor belt tension. This is done to avoid conveyor belt slippage, reduce conveyor belt sag, compensate for belt elongation, and allow more slack for belt installation and splicing. Pneumatic take ups are needed when process or environment causes your belt to expand and contract. Pneumatic systems also allow for quick tension adjustment to maintain belts and rollers. Eckels-Bilt take up units provide constant, even tension to accommodate belt changes.
