    Hi-Power® PowerBand® V-Belts

    Gates® Hi-Power® PowerBand® V-Belt construction allows multiple belts to function as a single unit, with even load distribution and each strand fitting securely in the sheave groove. It offers a solution for drives where single belts vibrate, turn over or jump off the pulleys. They consist of several V-belts joined together by a permanent, high strength tie band offering a tougher more stable solution compared to a single belt.

    • Flex-bonded tensile cords are vulcanised as one solid unit making the belt highly resistant to tensile and flexing forces, fatigue and shock loads.
    • Strong band controls belt-to-belt distance and prevents sideways bending.
    • Elastomeric compound protects the belt against heat, ozone and sunlight.

    EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE WITH PULSATING LOADS.

    Hi-Power® II Powerband® belts are especially developed for high-power drives subjected to pulsating loads. The Powerband technology consists of several V-belts joined together by a permanent, high strength tie band, thus providing more powerful, tougher performance than the total of the belts measured separately.

    Features and Benefits

    • 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.
    • The Flex-Weave® Cover is a patented fabric construction for longer cover life, providing extended protection to the belt core from oil, dirt and heat.
    • Concave sidewalls provide proper cord support and full contact with the sheave-groove for equal loading and uniform wear.
    • Gates® Curves provide full contact with pulley grooves for uniform loading of cords, uniform wear and increased belt life.
    • The Tie Band assures high lateral rigidity, guiding the belt in a straight line and preventing it from coming off the drive.
    • Static conductive (ISO 1813) and can as such be used in the conditions described in the Directive 2014/34/EU-ATEX.
    • Savings in drive space and weight due to high transmission efficiency.
    • High stability and smooth running on the toughest drives.
    • Temperature Range: -30°C to +60°C (-22°F to +140°F).
    • Important design economies possible.
    • Available on demand in Matched sets.
    • Better resistance to vibrations.
    • REACH and RoHS 2 compliant.

    EQUIPPED FOR YOUR OPERATING ENVIRONMENT.

    Featuring a composite, multi-purpose construction, Gates® Hi-Power® II PowerBand® belts resist oil and heat, ozone, sunlight, weather, and aging. We've even engineered the EPDM belt material to combat self-igniting, meaning your belt won't catch fire from heat build-up, even with severe slippage.
