Tensioner & Idler bearingsTechnical Information
Timing Belt System
A timing belt camshaft drive system comprises of belt, drive and driven pulleys, idlers, and tensioner. Tensioner & idler are not a power transmission component. They provide the life-of-engine tension control when installed and additional belt wrap.
1 – Cam Shaft
2 – Idler
Generally, located on the tight-side, it increases the belt-wrap angle of component to prevent tooth skip belt span vibration.
3 – Tensioner
Generally, located on the slack-side, it contributes synchronous driving cam and crank for providing initial belt tension of system.
A tensioner is one of automotive components which applies a force to create or maintain engine belt tension. There are several types of tensioners.
Fixed tension type, spring tension type, and hydraulic type.
Hydraulic type : HAT
Spring type : TBT
Spring type : ADT
