Introduction to Pipe Sheave

  • High-quality material
  • Precision engineering
  • Smooth operation
  • Long-lasting durability
  • Wide range of applications

Types of Sheave Pulleys

Single Sheave Pulley

The single sheave pulley consists of a single wheel with a grooved rim to hold the rope or cable in place.

Double Sheave Pulley

The double sheave pulley has two wheels in a single frame, allowing for increased mechanical advantage and load distribution.

Snatch Block Sheave

A snatch block sheave is designed for heavy loads and can swivel to accommodate different angles of pull.

Wire Rope Sheave

Wire rope sheaves are specifically designed to work with wire ropes, ensuring a secure grip and smooth operation.

V-belt Sheave

V-belt sheaves are used with V-belts to transfer power efficiently between two points.

Timing Belt Sheave

Timing belt sheaves are toothed to match with the timing belt teeth, providing precise power transmission.

What is a sheave on a pulley?

  • A sheave on a pulley is a wheel with a grooved rim that holds a rope, cable, or belt.
  • It is used to change the direction of the force applied and to transmit power.
  • Sheaves come in various sizes and materials to suit different applications.
  • They are essential components in lifting and pulling systems.
  • Sheaves help reduce friction and wear on ropes or belts.

What are sheaves used for?

  • Changing the direction of a force
  • Transmitting power efficiently
  • Supporting and guiding ropes or belts
  • Increasing mechanical advantage
  • Reducing friction and wear
  • Facilitating lifting and pulling operations

Process of Sheave Pulley

The process of manufacturing a sheave pulley involves several steps:


Designing and creating the mold that will shape the sheave pulley.


Pouring molten material into the mold to form the sheave pulley shape.

Raw Materials

Using high-quality materials to ensure durability and performance.


Manufacturing the sheave pulley with precision engineering and quality control.


Thoroughly testing the sheave pulley for strength, efficiency, and safety.

Antirust Treatment

Applying anti-rust treatment to protect the sheave pulley from corrosion.

Separate Inspection

Conducting separate inspections to ensure the sheave pulley meets all standards.


Marking the sheave pulley with relevant information for identification and traceability.

How do you adjust sheave pulleys?
