Murtfeldt Tensioners Suppliers

As chains and belts are vital and yet also the most easy-wearing parts in many machinery applications, they are often the parts that need replacing the most. Their easy-wearing tendencies are due to the fact that they are constantly in motion and constantly subjected to a multitude of high stresses and strains. Additional turbulent movement is caused by the belt needing to be pre-tensioned and the chain links stretched, which all adds to the relatively short lifespan of belts. One manufacturer has been designing special tensioning systems to combat this problem. Murtfeldt Tensioners, Suppliers and Manufacture To minimise the natural wear and tear, the reliable tensioning systems Murtfeldt manufacture keep chains and belts at the ideal tension to help maximise […]

Variable Speed Belts Manufacturers

There are a lot of different variable speed belt products designed and built by many different high quality manufacturers, so here is a quick introduction to some of the variable speed pulleys and belt manufacturers available through YB Components. Berges Speed Belts Berges produce symmetrical and asymmetrical variable speed belts, with the former operating up to 160 kW and the latter operating up to 200 kW. They also design and manufacture double pulley drives or compound pulley systems, which feature a combination of two pulleys working together to move the load. Browning Variable Speed Pulley Browning’s MVP sheaves include angular-faced centre flanges bolted to the barrel-mounted fixed flange, with another series of angular-faced flanges bolted to the threaded locking collar […]

Wedge Belts and Cogged Wedge Belts

Wedge belts are designed for high performance and can deliver up to double the amount of power produced by conventional variable speed belts. This makes the wedge belts Yorkshire-based supplier YB Components supply suitable for most industrial applications, especially when space, weight and higher levels of horsepower capacity are a priority. Wedge Belt Advantages Over Conventional V-Belts The heavier duty rubber used in wedge belt manufacture is more resistant to wear and tear, with the impregnated fabric wrap providing protection from oil and dirt. The fabric wrap also adds an extra layer of protection against heat, all of which combines to produce an extended belt life compared to standard variable speed belts. Many wedge belt suppliers, Yorkshire’s YB Components being […]
