Wrapped V-Belts

Wrapped V-Belt Information

PIX Power Wrapped V-Belts are available in three main categories Classical Wrapped V-Belts, Wedge V-Belts & Narrow V-Belts.

The research and development team at PIX has worked hard to achieve power ratings considerably higher than most of competing brands on the market. The compounds used at the heart of these belts are well chosen to match the designated power ratings, providing an increased margin of safety on critical drives

FRAS V-Belts

The entire PIX range of Fras industrial V-Belts exceeds international standards for oil and heat resistance, as well as anti-static properties.

However, the range is also available to certified FRAS specification (Fire Resistant Anti-Static), where extreme and hazardous conditions are encountered, such as oil rigs, mines, chemical plants etc. PIX FRAS belts are approved by PJB Mining (formerly British Coal), and also carry ATEX certification.

V-Belt Storage Tips

To ensure that you get the most out of your V-Belts, it is important that you store them correctly. If V-Belts are stored in favourable conditions, then they can retain their initial serviceability and dimensions. So how do you ensure you get a longer life out of your V-Belts?

 

Storing the belts

V-Belts should be stored off of the floor and away from moisture. This is commonly achieved by hanging the belts on crescent shaped pegs or pin racks. If you have a slightly longer V-Belt, then we would suggest loosely coiling the belt so that it reduces the space needed for storage, while keeping the belt distortion free.

Variable speed belts should be stored differently as they are less resistant to distortion than V-Belts. Placing the variable speed belts on shelves, as opposed to on pegs or pins, prevents possible distortion that can occur by hanging.

 

Ideal conditions for storing belts

If stored correctly, the belts can achieve a shelf life of up to 6 years. To achieve this, the belts must be stored in a cool, dry place that does not exceed 70% humidity or temperatures of 30°C. If the belts are exposed to unfavourable conditions, then the shelf life of the belts can reduce rapidly. Under rough estimates, an additional 20°C above the standard temperature range can result in the shelf life of the belts being halved.

We also recommend relaxing belt tension if a drive is not being used for prolonged periods of time. The necessary tension should then be reapplied before the drive is used again.

 

The don’ts of belt storage

  1. Do not store belts on the floor unless a suitable container is provided. Storing belts on the floor could lead the belts to coming into contact with moisture, which will reduce the life of the belts.
  2. Do not store belts near windows. Windows can permit exposure to both sunlight and moisture, which will reduce the life of the belts.
  3. Do not store belts near radiators or heaters. The increased temperature range will reduce the life of the belts.
  4. Do not store belts close to transformers or electrical motors. These devices may generate ozone, which will reduce the life of the belts.
  5. Do not bend or fold the belts while storing them, especially if they are under weight. This can deform the belts.
