Premium belts have the highest power density of any V-belt, and stretch dramatically less than standard cross sections. That’s why they’re ideal for use on problem drives requiring high-impact strength and load-carrying power.
Replaces several belts with the strength of a single belt. Banded belts feature a multiple layer tie band that provides excellent lateral rigidity to prevent belts from turning over or from coming off of the drive.
For applications when banded belts are not an option. Single belts can be used with deep groove sheaves and drives with limited room for “take up”. They can also be an “A” section solution for multi-groove A/B sheaves.
TB Wood’s Classical (also known as Conventional) V-belts include five cross sections: A, B, C, D, and E. These sections are a continuing development of the original V-belts of the 1930’s. A, B, C, and D belts are available in wrapped or cog construction and all are static conducting, and oil and heat resistant.
Note: E section V-belts are available for replacement on existing drives, but are not recommended for new drive designs.
TB Wood’s light-duty sheaves are available in two types, both with one and two grooves. "AK" sheaves are made to accommodate A (4L) belts; "BK" sheaves are made for A (4L) or B (5L) belts. The two lines of sheaves have identical pitch diameters when using A or 4L belts. Wood’s light-duty sheaves can be equipped with Wood’s "QT" Sure-Grip QD-type bushings, quick-detachable tapered bushings that are split through flange and tapered surface to provide a true clamp that is comparable to a shrink fit.
The Wood’s Poly-V sheaves include four cross sections: J, K, L, and M. The J section sheaves are stocked in a Sure-Grip QD Style and also bored-to-size for sheaves under 2”. The K, L, and M sections are available on a made-to-order basis in either cast or ductile iron and in Sure-Grip or bored-to-size design.
