Vee Belt Torque?

Recommended Posts

It's really the power able to be transmitted by a belt you want to be looking at. That can then be converted into a torque by using the radius and speed.

The power able to be transmitted by a V belt depends on several factors including the tension in the belt and the angle of wrap around a pulley. Have a look here: V belt link. The maths is not the simplest.

As a rough figure though, think about 1kW.

If you need something more accurate, give me a few days until I'm with a decent calculator and I'll rattle some keys for you.
