TB Wood’s V-belt drives are used on mining fan and HVAC systems when the motor shaft is parallel and offset to the fan shaft, or when the fan is powered by two prime movers. V-belt drives are also heavily utilized in underground and processing applications – including ball & sag mills, crushers, conveyors, cooling towers, winders and hoists. Form-Flex® couplings and floating shaft couplings are used on many of the same applications along with shovels & draglines, mine vehicles. TB Wood’s G-Flex® grid couplings are a proven solution for positioning between the motor and the driver sheave assembly on crushers. Dura-Flex couplings connect the motor to the speed reducer on ball and sag mills.
