3VX 5VX 8VX

Deep Wedge Narrow Raw Edge Cogged V-Belts

In construction and properties the narrow belts are similar to the wedge belts in performance, with the only difference being the additional top ridge provided in the narrow belts. These belts are manufactured according to specification RMA-IP 22 and also known as American Wedge Belts. Interchangeability between Narrow & Wedge belts
Acceptable agreement and exchangeability is found between 3VX and XPZ as well as between 5VX and XPB sections. It is possible to use 3VX and 5VX section belts in pulleys of XPZ and XPB sections respectively but corollary is not recommended as the top width of the RMA standard pulleys are smaller. Section 8VX is however, larger than XPC.

Features:

•  Oil resistant and antistatic
•  Maximum recommended belt speed is 30 m/s
•  High power transmission capacity than wrap belts
• Superior transverse stiffness & high wear resistance
• Suitable for drives with small pulley diameters, high ambient temperature and speed
•  Temperature range: -25 to +100

Applications:

These sections are standardized in USA and Canada therefore it is primarily used in machines exported to/from these countries. 8VX section belts are used in heavy duty drives such as stone crushers.

Standards, Dimensions & Product Range:

The standard length designation for Narrow belts is as follows: Belt number / 10 = Outside length in inches. For example: 5VX 950 means 950 / 10= 95 inches outside length
