Nevada Cooler Pad Hosts Training On New Generation Of Belts!
Nevada Cooler Pad, serving Southern Nevada for almost 65 years, recently hosted a training course by Bestorq, manufacturers of V-Belts and Timing Belts. Company owner Del Stork (pictured in the video link below) handled the training, which included a demonstration on how their new generation of belts, the X5 V-belts, provide less energy loss with almost twice the belt life. These new innovative belts are made from a compound that is more durable than the standard competitor’s brands.
This demonstration was done for company A-1 and they were fully engaged! The energy demonstration machine they brought puts all brands of belts on the machine to test for wear and tear and efficiency and Bestorq was verifiably the best of all brands. They also did a demonstration on the importance of belt tension. They had the class attendees try to tension by hand and found that only 2% of professionals can do this by “feel” We now offer a belt tensioning tool that can precisely tension a belt properly on equipment to improve belt life and efficiency.

Proper V-Belt Tensioning All belts do not feel the same when properly tensioned. There are two main groups of belts that feel quite different based on the materials and tension cables used in their manufacturing processes. The first group of belts felt spongy or springy when properly tensioned, while the second group of belts felt very rigid and stiff but still aren’t properly tensioned. Bestorq and other major high-quality manufacturers are in this second group of belts. Rigid belts stretch very little over their life and need to “feel” tighter than spongy belts which will actually stretch far more during their life. When properly tensioned, rigid belts will feel 1.5 to 1.8 times tighter than spongy belts. Although they feel tighter, rigid belts will not place any more load on bearings than spongy belts. The objective is to have the lowest tension to carry the load and yet high enough tension so there is never belt slip. Due to the different belt groups, one should not use “feel” to judge the correct tension of a belt. To more accurately tension V-Belt drives use the Force-Deflection Method shown below.
