Why is it so important to choose the right pulley?

Belt performance depends largely on pulley performance. Get the right pulley and you will increase the life of your belt to reduce the total cost of ownership of your application.

It is essential that the pulley used matches the corresponding belt used in the drive.

Types of pulley include:

  • V-belt pulleys
  • Wedge belt pulleys
  • Narrow wedge belt pulleys
  • HTD or ‘High Torque Drive’ heavy duty pulleys – used for demanding applications
  • Timing pulleys - Available in both imperial and metric designs
