Razlokhmachivaniye of face edges (F), cracks (N) and peeling of side cross ribs (G)


Destruction of separate ribs (J) and a crack in some ribs (To)


On a poliklinovy belt there can be following defects:

 – traces of oil and lubricant;
 – wear of edges of ribs. It can be a consequence of the fact that ribs (V) at rotation get on pulley ledges, at the same time ribs of a belt have the trapezoid form. The phase of stretching is visually noticeable at the bases of ribs (C), especially on the light site, see rice. Wear of edges of ribs of a poliklinovy belt;
 – hardening of edges of ribs, vitreous edges;
 – cross cracks (D) from a reverse side of a belt, see rice. Cross cracks (D) from a reverse side of a belt and peeling of ribs (E) of a poliklinovy belt;
