Each sheave pulley undergoes rigorous testing to ensure quality and performance.

Antirust Treatment

Special coatings are applied to protect the sheave pulley from corrosion.

Separate Inspection

Individual inspection is conducted to guarantee each sheave pulley meets standards.


Sheave pulleys are marked with specifications for identification and traceability.

How do you adjust sheave pulleys?

  1. Inspect the sheave pulley for any visible damage
  2. Check the alignment of the sheave pulley with the belt or rope
  3. Adjust the tension of the belt or rope connected to the sheave pulley
  4. Ensure proper lubrication of moving parts
  5. Monitor the performance of the sheave pulley during operation
  6. Consult the manufacturer’s guidelines for specific adjustment instructions
  7. Seek professional assistance if adjustments are beyond your expertise
