Belt tensioner

Schaeffler introduced a new belt tensioner, the FT0800, under its INA brand product line. It provides coverage for Honda L15BE, L15B7 and L15BY engines in Accord, Civic and CR-V models in the U.S. and Canada. As a hydraulic damped tensioner, it contains optimized belt pre-tension due to its rotatable fixing eyes and is suitable for modern Honda engines with cylinder deactivation that targets fuel reduction. In general, hydraulic tensioners such as FT08000 can be used to lower the belt pre-tension to a minimum by still controlling front-end auxiliary drive performance.
