V-Belt Basics

Means of Power Transmission

V-Belts Chains Gears Timing Belts

V-Belts and V-Belt Drives

The function of a belt is to simply transfer rotation from the powered pulley to one or more driven pulleys. The belt must be designed and manufactured to transfer this torque efficiently and reliably.

V-Belts and V-Belt Drives

V-Belts have been

around since the early 20th century

V-Belts and V-Belt Drives

V-Belts work

using the principle of the wedge

V-Belts and V-Belt Drives

V-Belts are available in

thousands of sizes and configurations Primary function is to transmit power from a primary source (motor) to a secondary driven unit

V-Belt Characteristics
Less expensive than other forms of power transmission Start, stop and run smoothly Operate noiselessly and without lubrication Absorb objectionable and harmful vibrations Clean and requires minimum maintenance Rugged and long lasting Provide a wide selection of speed ranges Cover an extremely wide horsepower range Easy to install and simple to replace Relatively unaffected by moisture, abrasive dusts,
or extreme variations in temperature

Two Major Belt Categories

V-Belt - works on the principle
of the wedge and relies on tension to create friction on the sidewall of the sheave to transmit power

Synchronous or timing belt -

relies on accurate and smooth meshing of the teeth on the belt with the grooves of the sprocket

Two Major Types of V-Belts

Wrapped Molded which has
a fabric cover and is molded into a V-shape

Raw Edge which is cured

and then cut into a V-shape

Wrapped V-Belt Construction

1. Protective fabric cover
impregnated with rubber 2. Tension Section - synthetic rubber compounded to stretch as belt bends 3. Cords - synthetic fiber cords carry the power and minimise stretch 4. Compression Section synthetic rubber compound to support cords evenly and compress as belt bends

Raw Edge V-Belt Construction

1. Tension Section - specially
woven stress-relived fabric 2. Cords - synthetic high modulus cord to carry high loads with minimal stretch 3. Compression Section Stiflex rubber compound and precision molded cogs increase flexibility and supports cords 4. Raw Edge Side Walls provide uniform anti-slip surface, greater flexibility and allow more cord

Advantages Raw Edge vs. Wrapped

Performs up to 4%
more efficiently Generates less heat build up Allows smaller pulley diameters Increased power ratings Provides longer life
