Description / Abstract:


This specification covers dimensional and marking requirements on V-belts and V-belt sheaves of both the narrow multiple and classical multiple type. This specification also includes recommended practices for:

• Design of V-belt drives.

• Care and use of V-belts

• Measuring tension in V-belt drives

• Calculating the load imposed by V-belts on shafts and bearings

However, these other forms of belt power transmission may be acceptable, provided that they are designed according to the belt manufacturer's recommendations and/or an existing industry standard.
