English term or phrase:Rub
I don't seem to find a proper translation for "rub" as a noun in the following context:
"The takeup pulley rubs opposite the drive motor are mounted in a horizontal position, better coverage would be achieved if they are rotated 90° to the vertical position."
It is a part of a bucket elevator. It isn't misspelled since it appears many times in the doc. Rub blocks are bloques de fricción, but now the word fricciones for "rubs" doesn't seem to be right, I think.
