Introduction to Belt Tensioner Pulley

Design and Working Principle of Belt Tensioner Pulley

  • The belt tensioner pulley is designed to maintain proper tension on the belt in a vehicle’s engine.
  • It is typically made up of a spring-loaded arm with a pulley attached that helps to keep the belt in place.
  • When the engine is running, the belt tensioner pulley rotates along with the belt, ensuring smooth operation.
  • If the belt tensioner pulley fails, it can lead to belt slippage, noise, or even engine damage.
  • Regular inspection and maintenance of the belt tensioner pulley are essential to ensure optimal performance of the engine.
