The PowerBand construction allows multiple belts to function as a single unit, with even load distribution and each strand fitting securely in the sheave groove.
Recommended for multiple V-belt drives exposed to pulsating or heavy shock loads which can make belts whip, turn over or jump off the drive.
The Tie Band assures high lateral rigidity, guiding the belt in a straight line and preventing it from coming off the drive.
Notches molded into the belt during manufacturing make this belt well suited for drives with smaller diameter sheaves.
Flex-Bonded Cords are strongly bonded to the body of the belt resulting in equal load distribution and the absorption of bending stress without cord deterioration.
Patented EPDM Material construction provides -60°F to +250°F temperature range to resist belt cracking.
Meets RMA oil and heat resistant standards.
Meets RMA static conductivity requirements.
Large Inventory of standard lengths and widths are readily available. See sizing table for details.
Belt Slitters located onsite at several Gates Service Centers can cut down an existing belt in inventory to the strand width needed.
Super HC® Sheaves
Belt part number is constructed by placing the (#) number of strands required followed by a slash (/) in front of the belt size.
For Example, 5/3VX800 represents a 3VX800 with 5 joined strands.
Belt product number is 8 or 9 digits constructed of product series prefix, number of strands, and belt length.
For example, 93885080 represents a "3VX" section PowerBand (9388) with 5 strands (5) that is 80.0 inches (080) long.
