  • Belt Tension Calculator
    Calculations that assist an engineer in the selection of a correct belt for any application.
  • Tension in timing-belt drives
    develops a difference in belt tension between the entering (tight) and leaving (slack) sides of the driver pulley. This effective tension, , is the force transmitted from the driver pulley to the belt and to the driven pulley or load: = tight and slackside tensions. The effective tension or working
  • Automatic Belt Tensioners Maintain Proper Tension, Improve Efficiency
    and achieve cost savings. On many AC units, the drive system often utilizes the popular V-belt to transmit power from the motor to the fan and/or compressor. Some companies would have you believe that this well-established power transmission system is outdated and inefficient, suggested the path
  • Cord Tensioning is Critical to Belt Performance
    Belt Pitch. The pitch of the belt is controlled by either increasing or decreasing the cord tension in the manufacturing process. Increasing the tension shortens the length, and decreasing makes the belt longer. Good control of pitch length requires control of tension. Belt Straightness. Uniform
  • White Paper Download: Belt and Chain Drives
    , All flat belts except the toothed type mentioned in the next data section are subject to creepage because of the relative motion between the pulley surface and the adjacent belt surface which is under load deformation from the combined tension and flexural stresses. Flat belts must be kept under

  • Synchronous Belt Failure Analysis Guide, Provided by Gates (R):
    If you're replacing your belts more than once per year, it's time to. analyze your drive. From belt crimping damage to high belt installation. tension to sprocket misalignment and adverse environmental conditions,. this guide walks you through how to identify the reasons behind. premature failure
  • Application Note: Engine Supercharger Power Consumption
    A customer needed to measure the crankshaft power required to spin a supercharger installed on a gas vehicle engine. The sensor had to be able to survive the large radial force imparted by the belt tension. An Interface Model T22 Pulley Torque Transducer was installed on the engine crankshaft
