Before a new set of V belts are installed, check the condition of the sheaves. Dirty or rusty sheaves impair the drives efficiency and abrade the belts, which result in premature failure. Worn sheaves shorten belt life as much as 50%. If the grooves are worn to where the belt bottoms, slippage may result and burn the belts.
Vee Belts amp; Pulleys are used to transfer power from the driving component such as a motor or geared motor to the application. Applications include conveyor systems, crushers, compressors, process lines and general speed reduction. We can also assist in drive design and provide software and tools to assist with belt tensioning if required.

V belt pulleys are for use with V belts to transfer motion from motors to belts, fans, and pumps. They have V shaped grooves that correspond with V shaped belts to prevent slippage and misalignment. V belt pulleys provide maximum friction and torque in compatible V belt drive systems.
Also known as step cone pulleys, these have multiple groove sizes so you can quickly change rotation speed by moving your belt to a different groove. Adjustable Pitch V Belt Pulleys Increase efficiency, vary speed, and extend the life of your drive by changing the pitch on these pulleys.
