Cogged  V-Belt Cross Reference Charts

Cogged belts, also known as notched belts, feature a design that incorporates longitudinal grooves along the inner surface of the belt. These grooves reduce the bending resistance of the belt as it wraps around the pulleys. This unique characteristic allows cogged belts to operate more efficiently than smooth belts, particularly in high-speed or high-torque applications. The reduced heat build-up and increased flexibility of cogged belts result in less energy loss, a lower operating temperature, and a longer service life.

Constructed typically from rubber or synthetic materials and reinforced with fibers such as polyester, nylon, or Kevlar, cogged belts provide excellent strength and durability. The cogged design enhances grip and stability, reducing slippage and improving the overall efficiency of the power transmission system. These belts are commonly used in automotive applications, HVAC systems, and various industrial machinery where precise and efficient power transmission is critical. Their ability to handle varying loads and speeds while maintaining a compact and efficient profile makes cogged belts a preferred choice for many mechanical drive systems.

When replacing or Cross Referencing Cogged V-belts, it is important to select the correct length and profile to ensure proper tension and operational efficiency. Always consult manufacturer catalogs or data sheets to match the belt specifications exactly to your machinery's requirements, taking into account the pulley sizes and distances between shafts in your setup.
