  • Overrunning damper isolator pulley reduces consumption and emissions by up to one percent

    25.10.2017Darmstadt, October 25, 2017. The efficient integration of auxiliaries in the belt drive is just as important as internal engine measures for the reduction of CO2 and consumption levels. Low belt tension can lead to significant improvements in efficiency here. However, this also involves the risk of belt sagging, which needs to be prevented at all cost. Vibracoustic has now developed a solution for this: the overrunning damper isolator pulley prevents sagging and flapping of the belt and thus ensures consistent belt tension in every driving situation.
