V-Guide

A v-guide is typically a urethane cord welded to the bottom of the belt longitudinally. It fits into a channel in the frame, drive pulley and tail pulley to help maintain belt tracking. V-guides are especially important in applications where side-loading or -exiting exerts lateral forces on the belt; the conveyor is in a difficult to track location (e.g., mounted overhead); or in a wet environment.
