Variable speed drive belts from Rydell Industrial (Belting) Co are available in a variety of imperial and metric sizes to suit all popular types of variable speed drives including Lovejoy, Reeves/Reliance, SEW and Lenze.
Machinery designed in North America, Europe and Asia uses slightly different lengths and widths according to various industry standards, and measuring and identifying aftermarket variable speed belts can prove difficult for end-users.
Unfortunately, many OEM part numbers do not incorporate the actual size of the belt or the angle of the vee profile and using the incorrect size can affect the performance and output speed range. Measuring the difference between inside circumference and pitch circumference should be done with care taking into account the elongation and reduced width that older worn belts display.
Rydell offer a wide range of variable speed drive belts from respected brands such as Gates, Megadyne and Bando covering almost all common metric and imperial sizes. Rydell are happy to consult with clients about the size of belt they might need for their machine. A trial fit can also be arranged from the substantial range of belt sizes kept in stock by Rydell around Australia.
Rydell Industrial Belting Co provides a free, no obligation on-site drive design and maintenance inspection service including variable speed drives and belt identification.
