Timing Belt Idler Pulley Calculator: All You Need to Know


Timing belt idler pulleys are an important part of the belt drive system and are used to maintain the tension of the belt and keep it in the correct track. The pulleys are composed of a hub, a bearing, and a groove to hold the belt in place. The hub is usually made from aluminum alloy, steel, or stainless steel, and the bearing is usually a ball bearing. The grooves can have different tooth shapes and different installation holes, such as pilot bolts, tap bolts, and QD bolts.

Product Selection

When choosing a timing belt idler pulley, you need to consider several different standards. The European standard is the standard used in the majority of the countries in the European Union. The American standard is the main standard used in the United States and Canada. The differences between the two standards are mainly in the size of the pulleys and the number of teeth.

In addition, you also need to consider the different tooth shapes, different installation holes, and the material of the pulley. We offer aluminum alloy, steel, and stainless steel pulleys for your selection.

Installation & Maintenance

We also provide timing belts that can be used in conjunction with the timing belt idler pulley. Installing the pulley is fairly straightforward; you just need to attach the pulley to the shaft and tighten the bolts. Disassembling the pulley is also easy and can be done with basic tools. It is important to keep the pulley clean and lubricated to ensure its proper functioning.
