Powerhouse® MX Pulley
Powerhouse® MX pulleys are built for high-torque, low-speed applications. They outperform the industry standards and are never made from sintered metal. Sintered metal pulleys are prone to cracking, fracturing, and are harder to machine. Residual porosity lowers a sintered metal pulley’s final mechanical and physical properties.
Powerhouse® MX pulleys are not made from gray iron until they reach 9 inches in outside diameter instead of the 4 inch outside diameter of our competitors’ pulleys, Gray iron has a much lower tensile strength and makes a poor shock resistor when compared to ductile iron. Gray iron is also too brittle for some applications.
B&B Manufacturing® now offers Powerhouse® MXpulleys with finished bores from stock. Finished bore pulleys eliminate the need for extra hardware such as the bushing. Because there are fewer parts, the Powerhouse® MX pulleys with finished bores are easier to assemble and cheaper than the sum of the bushings and the bushed timing pulleys.
Powerhouse® MX pulleys are available in 5 mm, 8 mm, and 14 mm pitches and are constructed to be compatible with Powerhouse® MX belts and Poly Chain GT belts. They come in a variety of widths, outside diameters, bores or bushings, and tooth counts.
If you need high quality belts and pulleys that last, install a POWERHOUSE® MX drive today and save your company time and money on drive maintenance.
