Pulleys

Pulleys

Idler and tensioner pulleys are part of the belt drive system. They have the same structure as bearings. They consist of metal balls, which are running on an integrated channel, thereby ensuring uniform movement. Tensioner and idler pulleys are subjected to high loads and severe conditions during engine operation,

which can lead to wear and destruction. Pulley that is not working properly can cause fast wear or destruction of the belt, which can cause serious engine damage. That is why it is always recommended their timely replacement.

Tensioner and idler pulleys ensures proper belt tension. There are two types of tensioner pulleys. The first type is when the belt is tensioned by an automatic tensioner, while the second is tensioned manually during installation. The most common type is the second type which is hand-tightening. Proper tension is achieved either by adjusting the cam mechanism, or by moving the bearing plate. The function of idler pulley is to guide the belt and ensure proper movement. Tensioner and idler pulleys are subjected to high loads and severe conditions during engine operation, which can lead to wear and destruction. Timely replacement of the pulleys ensures safe and smooth operation of the engine.
 
 
 
 
 
Ensure proper functioning of your pulleys as regularly:
 
Check the belt condition
Check the belt
Check for gaps in the pulley bearing
Check for noise in the bearings of the pulleys
Measure by proper instrument belt tensioner power
Check for wear and cracks on pulleys
 
Possible reasons for pulley failure:
 
1. Incorrect installation
2. Excessive or insufficient belt tensioning
3. Foreign particles caught in the pulley
4. Insufficient lubrication of pulley bearings
5. Untimely replacement
