Circular belt - introduction, advantages disadvantages,application

The circular belt is also called as rope belt or rounded bely. Circular belt are mostly used in factories. In this mechanical engineering lecture today we learned about what is Circular belt - introduction, advantages disadvantages,application.


Circular belt


Circular belt is circular (rounded) cross section so pulley shape is also rounded must be required.

Circular belt rounded cross section that's why power transmission capacity of circular belt is more than flat belt.

Circular belt is rounded cross section so slipping probelm is more create in circular belt drive, this problem is reduced when we used v belt drive.







Advantages of circular belt

Advantages of circular belt is explain as below 

1. Circular belt is used for long distance power transmission.

2. Circular belt is low cost belt and economical. 

3. It can significantly power transmit. 

4. Circular belt are strong and flexible 

5. Circular belt used when smooth and quite operation.



Disadvantages of circular belt

disadvantages of circular belt is explain as below 


1. Slip is more occurs in circular belt than v belt.

2. Power transmission efficiency is less than v belt.

3. Circular belt life is less than v belt



Applications of circular belt

Circular belt are mostly used in factories and industrial workshop. When we required less slip than flat belt than circular belt is used. 

Circular belt power transmission capacity is more than flat belt so when two pulley distance more than 8 meter that time circular belt is used.
