Sizes and dimensions of Contibelt’s “ConveRope” v-ropes:

The most economical tracking method for steel belts is to attach rubber v-ropes to the underside of the belt. These ride in v-grooved sheaves, or outside of the terminal drums.

V-ropes come in different shapes and sizes. However, the two most common types are the US-type (c-section) v-rope and the European type v-rope (dimensions of below illustrated v-ropes are in Millimeters):

European V-Rope, width 20mm

European V-Rope, width 20mm

American V-Rope, US Profile, width 23mm

American V-Rope, US Profile, width 23mm

Best way to find out what you need is to measure the width of the v-rope itself. So if you got a v-rope that is 23 mm wide (0,91 Inches), you would order an „US-Profile/ American V-Rope“. If your width is smaller like 20 mm (0,79 Inches), you would ask for an “European V-Rope”.

So this is the first step in making an order for a new belt. There is however still the question of: where is the v-rope located on the belt? To know more about this topic just click here (hyperlink) and read the further instructions.
