Cogged Oval Belts
|Conveyor diverters and urethane
belt transfers may jam if an errant box snags a round belt and rolls
it out of a pulley. This cogged oval belt is designed to eliminate
that problem. Its flat sides fit snugly against special high-walled
pulleys that lock the belt in position and prevent it from rotating
and climbing the pulley walls. The cogs allow the belt to flex along
its long axis, so the belt can be used with small diameter pulleys.
The inside and outside of the oval belt are cogged, allowing the belt
to bend in both directions, i.e., back upon itself, something that
cogged V-Belts cannot do. Urethane Belt has the capability to place the
cogs either directly opposite each other or offset by up to 5/8”.
