What is a Sheave on a Pulley?

1. Definition

A sheave on a pulley is a wheel with a groove used to guide and support a belt or rope.

2. Function

The sheave helps transmit power and motion between two rotating shafts.

3. Types

Sheaves can be fixed bore, adjustable pitch, or made for specific applications like wire rope.

4. Components

Sheaves consist of a wheel, groove, and sometimes bearings for smooth operation.

5. Maintenance

Regular inspection and lubrication are necessary to ensure proper functioning of sheaves.

What are Sheaves used for?

1. Power Transmission

Sheaves are used to transmit power between two shafts through belts or ropes.

2. Speed Adjustment

By changing the diameter of the sheave, speed adjustment can be achieved.

3. Load Bearing

Sheaves are designed to bear the load of the belt or rope passing through them.

4. Directional Changes

Sheaves can change the direction of motion in a system using belts or ropes.

5. Tensioning

Sheaves help maintain proper tension in the belt or rope for efficient operation.

6. Lifting Applications

Wire rope sheaves are specifically used for lifting heavy loads in various industries.

Antirust Treatment

Sheave pulleys are treated with anti-rust coatings to protect them from corrosion.

Separate Inspection

Each sheave pulley is inspected individually to ensure quality and consistency.


Sheave pulleys are marked with necessary information for identification and traceability.

How do you adjust sheave pulleys?

1. Loosen Set Screws

Start by loosening the set screws on the sheave to allow for adjustment.

2. Adjust Position

Move the sheave along the shaft to the desired position for proper alignment.

3. Retighten Set Screws

Once the sheave is in the correct position, retighten the set screws securely.

4. Check Alignment

Ensure the sheave is aligned properly with other components for smooth operation.

5. Test Operation

Run the machinery to test the operation of the sheave pulleys after adjustment.

6. Regular Maintenance

Regularly check and adjust sheave pulleys to ensure optimal performance and longevity.
