Costs vs. benefits

Cost

Vulcan Grip® is an industrial coating intended for use in the commercial world where productivity is everything and where “time equals money.” Because of the enormous variety of pulley-driven systems, it is practically impossible to quote package prices.

Generally, Vulcan Grip prices can range from $24,000 to coat all 16 pulleys on an 800-horsepower harvester to as little as $450 to coat a single-groove, six-inch-diameter pulley.

In certain applications, many end users find that the cost of a high-performance, permanent Vulcan Grip coating is about the same as a manufacturer-proprietary “disposable” pulley from an equipment dealer. In other applications, Vulcan Grip can cost 300–500% more than a commodity-grade imported pulley.

Often, we can remanufacture worn proprietary—and expensive—pulleys, offsetting the cost of a Vulcan Grip coating.

Benefits

Vulcan Grip saves operators money through…

Fuel savings

Our 800-horsepower forage harvesters save the operator 25–50 gallons of diesel per machine, each and every day they are in the field.

Increased production

You bought a machine with a certain-horsepower engine. Why didn’t you buy the next-size-down machine? You paid for all that horsepower, so why not put it all to work making you productive? Vulcan Grip’s grippy, micro-textured surface transmits all your engine power to the business-end of your machine. What could a 10-percent speed improvement or a 20-percent power increase—all day long, year after year—do for your bottom line?

Far fewer replacement parts

Vulcan Grip’s ultra-hard, corrosion-resistant cermet composition is virtually wear proof; costly replacement pulleys become a thing of the past. Simultaneously, Vulcan Grip’s micro-textured surface eliminates belt slip. Belts stay much cooler to the touch and last much longer.

Maintenance labor

Whether you hire a shop to service your machine, have your own mechanic on staff, or you do the work yourself, labor is expensive.

Increased up-time

Every hour in the field spent adjusting a belt tensioner is an hour you aren’t producing.
