Emerson Industrial Automation has unveiled an online Browning V-belt efficiency calculator that allows users to calculate projected energy savings and achieve gains of up to 3%. By entering a few key usage data points — including geographic location and motor horsepower, as well as days and hours per week — users can instantly calculate the estimated savings potential of upgrading from a wrapped to a notched V-belt.

By maintaining an appropriate belt-drive tension, and assuming certain standard design and maintenance criteria, wrapped V-belts can achieve up to 95% efficiency, while notched V-belts can achieve about 98% efficiency.

Power Transmission Solutions — a division of Emerson Industrial Automation — created the Browning V-belt efficiency calculator. The online resource incorporates several operating parameters that help quantify payback and improve energy efficiency in business-critical applications across numerous industries.
