Maxipower Cogged Belts
3VX and 5VX Thermoid Maxipower Cogged v-belts are ideal for situations where weight or sheave size is restricted.
Where increased horsepower is required, Maxipower Cogged belts-used with smaller sheaves-provide higher horsepower in a given space when compared to Prime Mover. With Maxipower Cogged belts, you can use sheaves as small as 2.2" in diameter -and achieve speed ratios up to 13.65. This lets you utilize high speed motors-which, according to the National Electrical Manufacturers Association, can mean a 10% increase in energy efficiency. The unique notched construction distributes bending stress uniformly-and also provides superior heat dissipation. In most installations, smaller diameter sheaves can be used, permitting shorter center distances. Maxipower Cogged belts are raw edge construction and are cut to the precise dimensions to fit the sheave groove. As a result, you get maximum wedging action and reduced chance of slippage.
