Premium V-Belts Oil Field Pump Jack

A pump jack in Wyoming experienced premature failure of competitor V-belts leading to increased replacement cost and production downtime. The drive system was redesigned utilizing Premium V-belts.
Pump JackDue to the high power density of the Premium belts, the sheave width was reduced and a fewer number of belts were required. Even in the extremely cold, exposed environment during the harsh winter conditions, belt life increased 33% leading to longer time span between belt replacements.
Premium belts feature KEVLAR® or aramid tensile cords which provide extraordinary strength, durability, and dramatically less stretch than standard cross sections. That’s why they’re ideal for use on problem drives requiring high-impact strength and load-carrying power. These belts can handle 1.4 to 2.2 times more horsepower than the equivalent size standard V-belt.
A double layer fabric cover creates maximum abrasion resistance that protects against wear caused by airborne dust and particles, which can cause rapid belt sidewall wear resulting in early failures.
