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.
