  • V-Belts and V-Ribbed Belts-Image
    V-Belts and V-Ribbed Belts - (363 companies)
    V-belts and V-ribbed belts are power transmission drive belts with a triangular or trapezoidal cross section. They are available in a variety of belt materials, reinforcement styles, and speed configurations. Typically, V-belts and V-ribbed belts...
  • V-ribbed Pulleys-Image
    V-ribbed Pulleys - (33 companies)
    V-ribbed pulleys or sheaves have a series of V-shaped ribs that mate with V-ribbed belts. They are used in numerous power transmission applications. V-ribbed belts are efficient, cost-effective, and designed for non-critical ratio drives...
  • Flat Belts-Image
    Flat Belts - (200 companies)
    ...of the pulley, which is why V-belts have grown in popularity. A V-belt is a basic belt for power transmission. They are generally endless in construction and their cross-section shape is trapezoidal, giving it the name V-belt. The V shape of the belt tracks...
  • Belt and Chain Tensioners-Image
    Belt and Chain Tensioners - (82 companies)
    ...drives consist of flat leather, rubber, or fabric belts running on cylindrical pulleys, or belts with a V-shaped cross section running on grooved pulleys. V-belts require less tension than flat belts because their greater surface area creates more...
  •  
    Flat Belt Pulleys - (81 companies)
    ...machinery such as computer printers. Flat belts are also used for conveyors. Compared to plied belts of equal horsepower, flat belts are thinner by 25% or more, which allows flat belt pulleys to be smaller than V-belt pulleys. Flat belts are also less...
  •  
    Conveyor Belts - (476 companies)
    Conveyor belts are used in a wide variety of material transport applications such as manufacturing, food processing, and heavy industry. Belt construction and belt materials are often application-specific. Conveyor belts are a continuous loop...
  •  
    Idler Pulleys - (69 companies)
    ...a drive belt to guide it or take up slack. A metric idler pulley is a pulley system that helps in connecting to distant points through an idler pulley. Idler pulleys are produced in a variety of styles such as, V-belt, plain, flat, and cable style...
  •  
    Sheaves - (138 companies)
    ...steel sheaves are impact-resistant and made of bar stock materials. Sheave suppliers that categorize products by features or functions may provide V-ribbed sheaves with smaller belt and groove sections. These products provide smoother and quieter...
  •  
    Tension Meters - (71 companies)
    Tension meters are instruments that measure tension in cable, fiber, belts and webs, or sheets. Cable or fiber meters are designed to measure tension of circular cross-section elements. Strap or belt meters are designed for elements whose thickness...

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...

...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...

...is installed. From the mechanical perspective it is usually coupling elements which need to be changed to adapt to new dimensions. This is why QD or similar bushings are typically used with V-Belt sheaves. If drive speeds change, a fairly quick sheave swap is all that is required. If a new gearbox...
