Wrapped Wedge

WRAPPED WEDGE V-BELTS

NOW HAVE INCREASED POWER RATINGS

The wedge SPZ, SPA, SPB, SPV, and narrow 3V, 5V, 8V sections, offer improved power handling capacity compared to equivalent Classical belts.

 

The next generation on from Classical belts, Wedge belts and Narrow have increased power ratings. The increased depth of the belt gives much more surface area of the belt (the sidewalls) in contact with the pulley, thus increasing the coefficient of friction, allowing wedge belts to transmit more power than Classical equivalents. Although a little more expensive than Classical belts, they are gradually becoming the industry standard for high-performance drives, and still represent great value for money.

PIX Wedge section belts exceed the requirements of ISO4183/4184, BS3790, andDIN2215. FRAS belts (fire-resistant/anti-static) are also available.

PIX Wrapped Wedge V-Belts are available in SPZ, SPA, SPB, and SPC sections. PIX Narrow V-Belts available in 3V, 5V and 8V sections. While Narrow belts are fairly rare in the UK, they are more common than wedge in the US.
