Belt Drive Inspection and Symptom Analysis

Gates recommends the following steps when inspecting a synchronous belt drive system:

With the power shut off, locked and tagged, and the machine components in safe positions, remove the drive guard and inspect the belt and sprockets for signs of unusual wear or damage.

Symptoms such as excessive belt edge wear, tooth shear, belt cracking and tensile break may indicate the need to correct alignment or to adjust tension to the correct values.
