Things to be aware of:

There are many different sizes and types of idlers made by multiple manufacturers, so you must order the correct size and type to minimize problems in the conveying system. Incorrect idler sizing or specification can lead to belt damage, cargo spillage, premature equipment failure, or even more catastrophic events. Therefore, take care while ordering and use the correct size frames and idlers in a conveying system. In some cases, the materials used in the construction of the idler frames or idler rolls may not be compatible with the material being handled, and contamination of the conveyed product can occur.
