  • Classical Multiple V-Belts
    In addition to the flat leather and fabric belts used in belt drives of the early 1900s, industry used hemp or wire rope running in grooved pulleys. These rope systems inspired development of the rubber V-belt, which first appeared in the 1920s. V-belts make use of a wedging action between belt
  • Single V-Belts
    Although classical V-belts can be used individually, classical belts tend to be somewhat overdesigned for drives light enough to demand only one belt. Thus, a special category of belts evolved specifically for single-belt applications, with the terms "single belt, " "fractional horsepower " (FHP
  • 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 Some companies would have you believe that this well-established power transmission system is outdated and inefficient, suggested the path
  • Improving Energy Efficiency in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Operations Part I: Motors, Drives and Compressed Air Systems
    of pumps have V-belt drives, many of which can be replaced with direct couplings to save energy [4]. Savings associated with V-belt replacement are about 4% of total motor system electricity consumption, and costs are estimated at $0.10/kWh-saved with payback within two years. Improving Energy
  • Proper Shaft Fits for Precision Coupling Devices
    When sizing high performance drive components, proper shaft fit is an important consideration in helping to maintain concentricity and balance in the rotating equipment. In v-belt drives, chain drives and other low-cost / low-speed systems, designers often give little thought to shaft fit. Many
  • Case Study: Motorcycle Engine Belt Drive System Delivers Smooth, Quiet Reliability
    S&S Cycle manufactures V-twin motorcycle engines and high quality components used by custom OE bike builders-American Ironhorse, Arlen Ness, Big Dog, Orange County Choppers, Swift, Victory, West Coast Choppers and the like
  • Belts
    system), deterioration because of severe exposure to chemicals and lubricants, and the requirement that damaged belts must be replaced, rather than repaired. Although V-shaped belts are not recommended for drives with a fixed-center distance or in low-speed, high-torque applications, synchronous
  • Flat Belts
    Flat rubber belts were developed around the turn of the century primarily as replacements for leather belts. With the advent of V-belts, fewer machines were designed to use flat belts, and their production became largely a matter of supplying replacement parts. Recent developments in flat-belt
