  • Motor Pulley Selection Chart
    Frequently questions arise concerning the selection of the proper motor pulley to get the required. pump performance. Here are charts which show the available motor pulley sizes with the respective pump RPM that. each motor pulley will deliver as well as the total pump output in G.P.M.
  • Monitoring Tail Pulley with a Speed Switch
    Unwanted slowdown or stoppage of a conveyor can result in costly and even dangerous conditions. Use an M100T Shaft Speed Switch to monitor tail pulley for slowdown due to belt slippage or breakage.
  • Timing Belt Pulley Materials - Things to Consider
    Choosing the right construction material for a timing belt pulley can have dramatic repercussions. When designing a pulley you want a product that is reliable, has a long operation life, and is cost effective. Often, to achieve the desired results, that means there are two options for construction
  • Cable Diameter Related to Pulley or Sheave Diameter
    The service life of Cable and Wire Rope can be increased if (1) it operates over the largest possible pulley or sheave diameter, and (2) it is properly supported in the pulley or sheave groove. The Working life of the individual wire strands is greatly reduced as the pulley or sheave diameter
  • Shrink-fitting aluminum pulley to insert inner bearing [PFS]
    A three turn helical coil is used to heat the aluminum pulley. The pulley is heated to 464 ºF (240 ºC) in 20 seconds to expand the inner diameter and then the inner bearing is inserted to form the completed part...

  • Mounting Sprockets and Pulleys on Pilot Style Clutches - Considerations & Guidelines (.pdf)
    Clutches are commonly connected to a drive system through roller chains and belting. This requires that a sprocket or pulley be mounted directly to the clutch. A pilot style clutch is made for this purpose; providing a projection onto which the sprocket or pulley will seat and a series of tapped
  • Handy Formulas to Help You
    This document contains formulas to calculate RM, GPM, required horsepower, pulley size and torque
  • Timing Pulleys: Comparing Nylon and Aluminum (Article Reprint)
    In any application where there is a drive, driven or idler pulley, engineers and designers need to consider the properties of the materials used in timing pulley construction before committing to a final design. Nylon and aluminum are the two most common construction materials for timing pulleys
  • Pretensioning Lightweight Belting
    is taken out, the belt must be tensioned to conform to the head or drive pulley. Another important factor: What type of head or drive pulley is on the system? We often see a crowned pulley that may be bare metal or lagged. A lagged drive pulley allows for less system tension and helps
  • Timing Belt Pulleys: The Nylon Advantage
    When selecting a timing belt pulley there are a number of factors to take into consideration. The first thing you must consider is the end applications. What sort of environment will the timing belt pulley be operating in? Often, the application itself will dictate what sort of timing belt pulley
  • Tension in timing-belt drives
    A urethane timing belt moves samples into position in this CAD simulation of an automated blood sampling machine. Timing-belt drives transmit torque and motion from a driving to a driven pulley or force to a linear actuator. They may also convey a load placed on the belt surface. A drive under load
  • Monitor Sludge Conveyors with a Speed Switch
    Use the Electro-Sensors SCP1000 Shaft Speed Switch with the 255 Pulser Disc to monitor tail pulley on a sludge conveyor for slowdown due to belt slippage, belt breakage, or overloading.
  • Fractional HP Pulleys
    No matter what kind of pulley is right for a given application, there are a couple of things that must always be considered. First and foremost, the pulley must be able to perform the given job. A cost-effective solution that can also offer advantages like noise reduction and shock resistance
