V-belt Alternatives

While V-belts are most common, there are a couple of alternative belts that could be considered.

 

Cogged Belts

Synchronous Belts

Note: Synchronous belts are toothed and do require installation of mating toothed-drive sprockets. Synchronous belts are noisy and may transfer vibrations. Care must also be used if synchronous belts are being considered for centrifugal fans. It is necessary to select the proper synchronous belt sprockets that account for absence of slippage; if not, operating costs could actually increase.
