  • Important Safety Precautions Every Factory Should Take

    Conveyor belts have many advantages in the industrial workplace. Many industrial processes would be impossible without the use of V belts and other conveyor systems. However, not everything about conveyor belts is positive. Some belts offer safety concerns for human employees. In September, 2012, a factory worker in North Yorkshire, U.K. broke his arm when operating the unit improperly. These unfortunate accidents can occur when the necessary and proper safety precautions are not taken during the use of conveyor belts. Most belting systems come with safety features that can prevent...

  • The Design of V Belts Explained

    Conveyor belt designs have changed over the years. The original belt design was a simple sheet of rubber or fabric that rotated over a flat shelf. The problem with this design is that the belt could slip off the conveyor easily, causing problems and snags in the machine line. Modern designs have addressed this problem quite well, and today's modern conveyor belts rarely have problems with slipping belts or catches in the conveyor lines. One of the best systems that modern conveyor belts use to avoid problems with the belt...

  • Conveyor History: V Belts

    V belts are some of the most widely used style of belt used in manufacturing today. Surprisingly enough, V belts have been around for nearly 100 years. Over the years, inventors have perfected the design, but they still use the same basic principles discovered so long ago. The V belt was invented by John Gates from the Gates Rubber Company in 1917. This company is actually still in operation today, and sells many variations on their original belt system. John Gate's original invention was for a trapezoidal endless belt. The...

Industry Information

V Belts

V belts are a type of belt than run in a pulley with a V-shaped grooved. Typically endless, V belts contain a trapezoidal cross section. Compared with flat belts, V belts transmit higher torque at lower levels of tension and width. V belts are one type of conveyor belting that fits various applications.

V belts are ideal for lightweight or fractional horsepower use. They also function with high horsepower, shock loads and high-tension drives for rough applications. The flexibility of a V belt lends itself to being used on a majority of belt drives and conveyor systems. V belts are very commonly applied as power transmission belts; they can be used in industrial process equipment as well as components in internal combustion engines. Industrial V belts lend themselves to the efficient and safe operation of all kinds of industrial process equipment. They can be applied in agricultural equipment, mining equipment, in generators and in many other contexts. In combustion engines, V belts are often applied as timing belts, which are used to regulate the operation of an engine. V belts can also be used as conveyor belts, though they are more commonly employed as power transmission tools.

V belts are valuable tools in a large number of contexts. They can be designed to a wide variety of specifications. V belts can be single or double sided, open ended, endless and cogged or uncogged. They can also feature anti-static qualities, which makes them appropriate for use in the presence of hazardous or sensitive chemicals or processes. V belts are available in several different colors, materials and styles. A V belt is measured based on its inside diameter. They take their name because of the V-shaped cross sections, which are also sometimes described as trapezoidal or triangular in shape. That special cross section gives the belting anti-slip properties, which makes it an excellent choice for use in engines. Because belt failure in an engine can have catastrophic implications for other engine equipment, a reliable, non-slip belting solution is very valuable. V belts can be manufactured from a wide variety of materials. A few of these materials include neoprene, polyurethane and silicone. Carefully pairing a V belt with its application will help to ensure the long-term safe and effective operation of the belt and the equipment to which it is attached.
