QD bushed sheaves (8V section
) 6-groove belongs to the class of sheaves with narrower V-belts that offer the highest capacity power for any sheave size and weight. These types of sheaves have six total grooves on their surfaces that are only compatible with 8V section V-belts
. Due to more wedge action and higher load capacity, they can generate over 700 kW. They V-belts have a greater depth to width ratio and can barrow deeper into the sheave grooves. This enables the QD 8V section sheaves to use smaller or fewer narrower belts to transmit the load and reduce the drive weight and size, therefore, increase power transmission efficiency. The high number of sheave grooves makes them less prone to belt slippage. If the sheave is worn out, the QD bushings allow for easy replacement. They can be used from giant crushers to sewing machines and can be suitable for severe duty applications, including shock and high starting loads. Purchase the best QD bushed sheaves
