Benefits of Using Cog Belts


The U.S. Department of Energy states that cog belt systems are 98% efficient, as compared to a 95% efficiency rating for V belts. That may not sound like much, but over time, incremental improvements in efficiency can save energy costs and more.

There are several other potential benefits of using cog belts. These include:

  • Better and more consistent efficiency over a wider range of loads than other belt types
  • Less slippage at high torque
  • Requires less maintenance and retensioning
  • Can run in wet or oily environments

Changing to Cog Belts

Some companies change to a system that uses cog belts because it will save them money in the long run, but you have to weigh many factors before deciding to change over your equipment’s belt system. When your equipment’s current belt is due for a change, consider the pros and cons of using cog belts to see if changing to a cog belt system offers more advantages to your business.

Deciding whether or not to change from your current belt system to a cog belt system isn’t a decision to make lightly or quickly.
