**Belt Drives and Chain Drives**

Chapter 7: Belt Drives and Chain Drives CVT

2
Overview – why used? 1.) Transfer power (torque) from one location to another. From driver: motor,peddles, engine,windmill,turbine to driven: conveyor belt, back wheels/bike,generator rock crusher,dryer. 2.) Used to span large distances or need flexible x-mission elements. Gear drives have a higher torque capability but not flexible or cheap. 3.) Often used as torque increaser (speed reducer), max speed ratio: 3.5:1. Gear drives?? Virtually unlimited! Applications? Show rust abrader, glove factory, draw sample drive of rust abrader, show slides from mechanism book.

3
**Sometimes desirable to have both chain and belt drive (Fig 7.1)**

Belt: high speed/low torque Chain: Low speed/high torque

4
**Belts vs. Chains Belts Chains Use When: Speed: Dis: Advs:**

High Speed, Low T High T, Low Speed Speed: 2500 < Vt < 7000 ft./min. V < 1500 ft./min. Must design with standard lengths, wear, creep, corrosive environment, slip, temp., when must have tension need idler Must be lubricated, wear, noise, weight, vibration Dis: Advs: Quiet, flexible, cost Strength, length flexibility

5
Types of Belts: a)V-belt most common for machine design, several types (Fig. 7.5 – 7.8) Timing belt (c & d) have mating pulleys to minimize slippage c) Pos retention due to mating pulleys d) Pos retention due to increased contact area Flat belt (rubber/leather) not shown, run on tapered pulleys Add notes

Types of V-Belts

**V-belt Drive Design Process**

Need rated power of the driving motor/prime mover. BASE sizing on this. Service factor based on type of driver and driven load. Center distance (adjustment for center distance must be provided or use idler pulley) nominal range D2 < C < 3(D2 + D1) Power rating for one belt as a function of size and speed of the smaller sheave Belt length (then choose standard size) Sizing of sheaves (use standard size). Most commercially available sheaves should be limited to 6500 ft/min belt speed. Belt length correction factor Angle of wrap correction factor. Angle of wrap on smaller sheave should be greater than 120 deg. Number of belts Initial tension in belts

8
**Key Equations Belt speed (no slipping) = Speed ratio =**

Pitch dia’s of sheaves Pitch dia in inches rpm Belt speed ft/min

9
**Key Equations Belt length: Center Distance: Where,**

Recommended D2 < C < 3(D2+D1) Note: usually belt length standard (use standard belt length table 7-2), then calculate C based on fixed L

10
**Key Equations cont… Angle of contact of belt on each sheave**

Note: Select D’s and C’s so maximum contact (Ѳ1 + Ѳ2 = 180º). If less then smaller sheave could slip and will need reduction factor (Table 7-14).

V-Belt Design Example Given: 4 cylinder Diesel 80hp, 1800 rpm to drive a water pump (1200 rpm) for less than 6 hr./day Find: Design V-belt drive

**V-belt Design Example Cont…**

1.) Calculate design power: Use table 7-1(<6h/day, pump, 4 cyl. Engine) Design Power = input power x service factor = 80 hp x 1.1 = 88 hp

2.) Select belt type, Use table 7-9 Choose 5V Speed = 1800 rpm Design Power = 88 hp

3.) Calculate speed ratio SR = w1/w2 = 1800 rpm/1200 rpm = 1.5

4.) Determine sheave sizes Choose belt speed of 4000 ft/min (Recall 2500ft./min. < vb < 7000 ft./min) So… D1 = 8.488in D2 = SR * D1 = 1.5 * 8.488 D2 = in

5.) Find sheave size (Figure 7-11) Must find acceptable standard sheave 1, then corresponding acceptable sheave 2 Engine (D1) 8.4 8.9 X 1.5 12.6 13.35 Standard D2 12.4 13.1 Actual n2 1219 1154 1223 **All look OK, we will try the first one

Adjust for speed ratio to get total power/belt Total power = 21hp +1.55hp = 21.55hp

Chain Drives Roller Chain Construction (Most common Type)

31
Chain Design Process 1.) # of sprocket teeth, N1 (smaller sprocket) > 17 (unless low speed < 100 rpm.) 2.) Speed ratio = n1/n 3.) 30 x Pitch Length < Center Distance < 50 x Pitch Length 4.) Angle of contact of chain on smaller sprocket > 120° 5.) # sprocket teeth, N2 (longer sprocket) < 120
