Are you torn between upgrading your power transmission to an 8 groove or a 10 groove sheave system? You better start by understanding the two. The 10 groove pulleys
fall in the class of quick detachable (QD) sheaved pulleys. These are types of sheaves that are uniquely constructed to make installation easy and fast to reduce your system downtime.The 10 groove pulley, as the name suggests, is designed to operate with a maximum of 10 V-belts
. This makes it one of the top heavy-duty types of pulleys in the market. Note that the pulley uses the A-B section category of belts. These are the classical V-belt models that are constructed for extra strength.As a heavy-duty sheave, the 10 groove model is constructed with strong materials such as gray iron that makes it easy to hold the 10 belts, transmit power, and last longer. This is why it is preferred for heavy-duty operations in agriculture, mining, petroleum and automotive assembly.
