Drive belts are made of rubber and will inevitably deteriorate during use. In a normal working environment, the drive belt can have an ideal service life, but in actual use and maintenance, we are likely to affect the service life of the drive belt due to improper disposal.
Incorrect equipment maintenance:
1. The operator did not make another tensioning adjustment, did not replace worn pulleys in a timely manner, did not have clean guards, lacked solid brackets and sturdy drive components, and did not check alignment environmental factors.
2. Exposure to dust debris, water, humid environments, oil and grease, high and low temperatures, resulting in rusting, incorrect pulley, and belt installation.
3. Flipping and prying belts not aligned, incorrect tension, incorrect belt grouping, belt and pulley matching idler pulleys to provide tension in an incorrect manner, interference of guards, improper transmission.
Lubricated drive belts do not require lubrication, but if there is lubricant on the drive belt, the belt may slip, accelerating wear, and the lubricant will accelerate the aging process of the rubber. So, remember, never leave the drive belt in oil! If your drive belt is inadvertently contaminated with oil, you should use it with carefully, and it is best to replace it immediately.
Pulleys drive belts transmit power through pulleys, and damage to pulleys can cause damage to the drive belt, such as worn bearings and damage to contact surfaces, so be sure to regularly check the operation of end-face components!
If the running side is scrapped, first check if the belt is installed wrongly, and then deal with it according to the troubleshooting method. It may be that the number of roots of the belt is too small, the load is too large, the foreign body embedded in the pulley groove, or the diameter of the pulley is too small.
Belt drive troubleshooting:
1) The main failure of the drive belt is slippage.
2) Possible causes are loose belts, oil on the belt or pulley, worn or stretched belt, etc. If the belt is too loose, readjust the belt according to the tightness requirement in the instruction manual. If the belt or pulley slips due to oil on the belt, remove the oil in time and replace the belt with a new one if it is worn or stretched.
