You've covered all the reasons why fan belts shred. I would suggest looking closer, and making sure the bearings are good in all belt driven devices.

Reply back if you have any further questions.

Search Fixya.. serpentine belt shredding

Sounds like one of the pulleys is not aligned with the rest. You can use a straight edge to check the alignment.
I would also want to make sure all of the pulleys are secure and not loose or bent.

One or more of your pulleys may be damaged or misaligned. Remove the belt and inspect the pulleys for cracks and/or sharp edges. You can use a stiff straight edge to check alignment. Also check that there is no play or wobble in any of the pulleys and that your belt gemstones is not worn or broken.

Replace the tensioner and all associated hardware. Check the pulleys to make sure they are not warped or have a bad bearing.

take the belt off and carefully check to see if any of the pulleys are out of line and check to make sure they spin smooth and true check for bearing wear and noise in any of the pulleys cause it sounds like simply there is a pulley out of line

Serp. belt off alignment

Did you replace the belt? You mentioned the pulleys, but not the belt. If the belt is new, check the grooves on the pulley that appears to be a problem and make sure there is no residue stuck in the grooves. Also, make sure you can't wiggle the pulley that is giving the problem. It is possible for a belt to cause some damage when it comes apart.

Shredded supercharger belt

With the belt off use your fingers to run the entire circumference of both pulleys. Check for any burrs or sharp edges. If it is all smooth proceed to pull on each pulley face to see if you can rock the pulley up or down or side to side (we're looking for play in the pulley, not spinning)

Also make sure that your tensioner is adjusted correctly,
