Drive Belt Troubleshooting

Like many industries, technological advances in power drive belts, most notably V Belts, have provided more cost effective efficiencies. A wide range and variety of V-Belt types, lengths, and cross sections have all played a part in making all types of power transmission drive work harder for less money.

Over time, efficiencies gained by technology are lost as v-belts and parts of the power transmission wear out. Problems with your power drive belts can be caused by a multitude of factors. Below is a chart of issues that can and do effect the efficiency and safety of your machinery.

This chart was designed as a guide to help you determine what may be causing premature belt failure. Please Note: This is only a guide and you should consult a local, qualified maintenance person to determine the root cause of any machinery failures.
