1 groove is a type of quick detachable (QD) bushed sheave, designed to work with the c-section category of power transmission belts. As the name suggests, the sheave has a single groove that only supports a one transmission belt. But because it works with strong c-section belts, it is recommended for medium-duty power transmission operations.1 groove sheaves are designed with hardened materials ranging from cast iron to sintered steel. However, it is also possible to get some 1 groove sheaves made with other materials depending on the targeted application. When selecting the materials for 1 groove sheaves
, the primary goal is ensuring the sheave can withstand intensive use and last longer.To make their use easy, 1 groove sheaves are fitted on a tapered bushing for fast assembly and removal. This design has made them very common in the motor assembly, agriculture, waste management, and bulk handling industrial facilities. When selecting 1 groove sheaves for your facility, only order the model with the right bore size (based on your shaft size).
