Why has my drive belt snapped?

The belt on a BioDisc can become damaged, or even snap, if there are other parts on the system working incorrectly:

  • Top pulley drive teeth wearing thin causes the belt to jump around the pulley, which in turn can snap the belt through time.
  • Wear on the drive end bearing causes the belt to not hold the required tension, which causes the belt to jump around the pulleys causing excessive wear then failure.
  • If the top and bottom pulley are not lined up, the belt will ride over the top pulley shoulders, causing excessive wear then failure.
  • If the rotor has not been serviced regularly and the biomass grows very heavy, this puts strain on the drive belt which in turn will stretch the belt causing it to jump and then fail.

If you are concerned that your BioDisc is not operating correctly, give our team a call on 01388 537030 and we’ll be happy to advise.

Feedback From Satisfied Customers

  • I have recently had a new sewage system installed at one of my sites which wasn't a straight forward job due to it being located in a private field, we had to make sure the owner, as well as our residents were happy with the proposals. Ian Murray met me on site on 2 occasions, with the owner of the field ans was very professional and explained exactly what would be happening, putting the field owners mind at rest. The job went to plan with no unexpected costs and minimal disruption to the field. Very happy customer!
