V-Belts Survive Extreme Temperatures

Wed, 09/01/2010 - 7:30am

The Gates Rubber Co. industrial molded notch v-belts have been upgraded to a high-performance EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) material construction, which provides longer belt life at extreme temperatures, according to the company. The EPDM belts offer a 70 percent broader operating temperature range (-60° to +230°F), which improves resistance to cracking, a common belt failure. In addition, an optimized notch shape improves the flexibility for up to 3 percent better efficiency than conventional V-belts.
