, also known as cogged V-belts, are a type of power transmission belt used in various industrial applications. They are similar in design to standard V-belts, but with a toothed or cogged underside that provides increased grip and reduced slippage.
Characteristics of Raw-Edge V-Belts
are designed with a V-shaped cross-section and a toothed or cogged underside. This design allows for better grip and reduced slippage, even in high-torque applications. The toothed underside also provides increased flexibility, allowing the belt to wrap around smaller pulleys and bend around corners without the risk of the belt slipping off the pulleys.
Advantages of Raw-Edge V-Belts
Reduced Slippage: Raw-edge V-belts provide increased grip and reduced slippage, even in high-torque applications. This allows for more efficient power transmission and better performance.
Improved Efficiency: The improved grip and reduced slippage of raw-edge V-belts allow for improved efficiency, which can lead to increased fuel economy and reduced emissions in automotive applications.
Longer Lifespan: The improved grip and reduced slippage of raw-edge V-belts also lead to a longer lifespan than standard V-belts. They are less likely to stretch or wear, which reduces the need for frequent maintenance and replacement.
Applications of Raw-Edge V-Belts
Raw-edge V-belts are commonly used in a wide range of industrial applications, including:
Automotive: Raw-edge V-belts are used in automotive engines to power accessories such as the alternators, air conditioning compressors, and power steering pumps.
Industrial: Raw-edge V-belts are used in many industrial applications, including conveyor systems, packaging machinery, and power transmission equipment.
HVAC: Raw-edge V-belts are used in HVAC systems to power fans and blowers.
Lawn and Garden: Raw-edge V-belts are used in lawn and garden equipment, such as lawnmowers and snow blowers.
