Sometimes, due to the design of the classic v ribbed belt, due to the original edge of the notched V Ribbed Belt design and overall design, people sometimes ask whether there is wear differences. In fact, many factors can contribute to wear and tear wear. However, the cut v ribbed belt and the wrapped v ribbed belt have almost the same pulley wear characteristics, usually every five to seven belts.

Tension is usually the main cause of efficiency loss and causes belt wear. If the belt is disturbed, they slide into the groove of the pulley. When the drive is started and stopped, constant sliding will reduce the belt life and damage the pulley groove. It is recommended to use the Tension Checker for all installation and maintenance procedures to ensure adequate tension.

Must be properly installed to avoid wear. The technician needs to ensure that the pulley is aligned. The bushing must be properly installed for proper engagement with the pulley and shaft. Incorrect installation of the bushing can cause wobble and vibration. Even if the slight swing may lead to early pulley wear. Maintenance is a key factor in reducing pulley wear. The technician needs to ensure that the preventive maintenance plan / schedule contains checks for the driver and driving pulley. The technician should check the correct alignment, installation and tension. Note: Pulses with more than one-half inch of wear need to be replaced.

The environment is often overlooked by the weary contributors. The technician needs to ensure that the belt guard is properly installed and that the debris does not fall into the drive path. Scrub air contaminants such as sand and cuttings can damage the belt and quickly erode the pulley. If the pollutant is ultimately unavoidable, the pulley should be routinely cleaned to minimize wear.
