Product # 93361700

The Gates Super HC® V-belt combines the strength of a wrapped belt construction with the economies of a narrow section V-belt. Pioneered and patented by Gates®, the wrapped, "narrow" belt cross-sections on our Super HC® V-Belts can transmit up to three times the horsepower of classical cross-sections (A, B, C, and D) in the same amount of drive space. Super HC® belts are suitable for virtually any industrial application, particularly those where space, weight and horsepower capacity are critical. Super HC® V-belts also have exclusive Gates construction features for longer life on your drives!

  • Meets RMA oil and heat resistant standards and static conductivity requirements
  • Up to 300% capacity increase over classical belts
  • Temperature Range: -22°F to 140°F (-30°C to 60°C)

Small Space. Big Power.

Gates® Super HC™ combines the strength of wrapped belt construction with the ergonomics of a narrow section V-belt, allowing your Super HC™ V-belt to transmit more power in up to 50% reduced space, with a design that's significantly more compact than classical section V-belts. This means more power, less space, and less overall drive costs in your operations.

Features and Benefits

  • Flex-Bonded Cords are strongly forged to the belt body, resulting in equal load distribution, resistance to fatigue and shockloads, and the absorption of bending stress without cord deterioration
  • Arched top, concave sidewalls and rounded corners provide uniform tensile loading and uniform pulley sidewall contact for excellent belt service and reduced pulley wear
  • Notches molded into the belt during manufacturing increase flexibility, making this belt well suited for drives with smaller diameter sheaves
  • The Flex-Weave® Cover is constructed for longer cover life, providing extended protection to the core of the belt from oil, dirt, and heat
  • Gates Curves provide proper cord support and full contact with the sheave groove for uniform loading, uniform wear, and increased belt life
  • The vulcanised Flex-bonded tensile cords provide superior resistance to tensile and flexing forces, fatigue and shock loads
  • Belt Edge is machined for even sheave groove contact resulting in smoother running, less slip, and wear
  • The belt will not catch fire from heat buildup, even with severe slippage
  • The Flex-Weave oil and heat resistant cover protects the belt
  • Gates Super HC belts are available in 3V, 5V, and 8V cross-sections
