V Belt runs longer and perform better if they are given the proper care and attention during
Proper care as below:
→ Check pulleys and make them aligned. Incorrect alignment may shorten the service belt life.
→ Check the pulley main components and lubricate the working parts periodically.
→ Pay attention to the pulley grooves and make sure they are all equal in dimensions.
→ Check the pulley abrasion and remove any rust, dirt or grease that may influence belt usage.
→ Ensure heat dissemination of pulley in belt operation.
V belt installation as follows:
→ Locate belt by moving the motor
→ Put belts onto the pulley one by one and locate belts first on the driving pulley
→ Do not use a lever to force belt onto pulleys but turning pulley slowly can facilitate installation.
→ Apply tension to prevent slippage at full loading and run 5 minutes and re-tension. If necessary, please re-adjust the tension after belts running a few days.
→ Do not combine to use new and used belts in one set that may shorten belt life due to unbalanced stretch of belts.
