We have available an extensive range of pulleys to suit all cross sections of V-Belts. Our standard pulleys are made of quality cast iron but we can get them manufactured in steel if required, both are available with a pilot bore, bored & keyed or with a taperlock bush arrangement. We also offer light duty aluminium and light duty cast iron Biloc® pulleys. We can also manufacture special pulleys for the sawmill and agricultural industry. We have available a fitting & maintenance download in our engineering section as well as catalogues downloadable for our common range of pulleys.
Proper alignment is essential to maintain long V-belt and pulley life. The best way by far to align your pulleys and to get it absolutely spot on is by using a laser aligner, but not everybody has that luxury, the drawings to the left show a couple of different ways to align your pulleys. 1. By using a straight edge and touching the driver and driven pulleys at four points indicates good alignment. Use a square positioned from the base up to the pulley face to check if the pulley is perpendicular to the base. 2. Shows how a tight cord can be used to check for pulley alignment. Tie the cord to the driven pulley shaft and bring it around the pulley face, bringing the cord to the driver pulley face, a quick check can be performed to see if the tight cord contacts the driver and driven pulley at four points.
