The chart below can help determine which Hytrol v-belt part number is on a conveyor section with two simple steps:
Measure the bed section
Does the belt extend into the next bed section? Yes, Long. No, Short.
Length of the bed section
A bed section can be seen by breaks in the frame. Most conveyors are too long to be shipped as one complete unit. They have bed sections of various levels up to 10’ long that are bolted together when assembled in the field.
Is it a long or short v-belt?
Look through the rollers to see if the belt does or does not enter the next bed section.
Long belt means the v-belt extends from it's bed section and connects power to a sheave pulley in the bed section next to it.
A short v-belt doesn't extend into the next bed section. More commonly found on the first or last bed section of the conveyor.
