The truck and bus accessory belts require permanently maintained tension which, given their drive kinetics and their size (some more than 4 meters), requires a reliable reinforced tensioners system.

Original Hutchinson technology: hydraulic tensioner

hutchinson aftermarket Poly V® tensioners

The technology of the linear hydraulic dampening tensioners was developed exclusively by HUTCHINSON Transmission and has been patented. Widely used in first-fit applications, this technology makes it possible to attain significant levels of shock absorption for the most severe cases of application, especially on large truck engines.

They have a vital role of ensuring a maximum absorption of uneven rotations of the Poly V® belt, thereby protecting the peripheral units such as the alternator pulley, the water pump or the crankshaft pulley against the vibrations of the accessories belt.
With an unrivalled level of shock absorption, the hydraulic dampening tensioner rollers reduce a lot of vibrations at low speed, during transient phases (such as start-up and stopping) and thereby saves on several other solutions. It also ensures significant longevity.
