Industrial power transmission belts

We are a pioneer in manufacturing various types of Industrial Power Transmission Belts.

We have the global expertise in manufacturing the heavy duty Industrial power transmission Belts for all those applications involving high power transmission, in compliance with all International Standards.

Industrial power transmission Belts are available in Wrap, Raw Edge Cogged, Poly-V and in Timing Belt constructions.

Enhancing its scope beyond the standard Belts, we have developed the Heavy Duty, High Power, Maintenance-free Muscle Series Belts in Wrap and Raw Edge Cogged constructions.

Terminator Heavy-duty, High Power, Wrap Transmission Belts are available in dry-cover construction mainly for the mining application and they offer enhanced power transmission capacity up to 55% over the standard Belts.

Heavy duty high power transmission Belts are available in Timing construction, offering 50% to 70% enhanced power-rating over the standard HTD / STD sections of the Timing Belts.

How long do timing belts last?

Your car’s timing belt is responsible for maintaining the precision that’s crucial to your engine’s functions. Essentially, it coordinates the rotations of the camshaft and crankshaft so the engine’s valves and pistons move in sync. The expected lifespan of your timing belt is specific to your car and engine configuration, usually between 60,000 and 100,000 miles. (You can check your owner’s manual or look online for your car’s service schedule.)

The manufacturer’s recommended intervals are a safe guideline; you probably won’t need to replace your belt any earlier. However, if you’re approaching your service interval and have doubts about the belt’s condition, you might as well get it replaced a little early. It’ll be less expensive than waiting until after the belt breaks.

Why is it important to replace the timing belt on such a strict schedule? The belt is a synthetic rubber strap that contains fiber strands for strength. It has teeth to prevent slipping, which fit into the grooves on the end of the camshaft and crankshaft. It’s a simple part for such an important function, and when it snaps, things get a lot more complicated. Unlike many car parts that gradually lose function as they wear out, a timing belt simply fails. Whether the belt breaks or a couple of teeth strip, the end result is the same. One minute, your car will be running perfectly; the next minute, it won’t. You’re in trouble if your car has an “interference engine,” in which the valves are in the path of the pistons. If the camshaft or crankshaft moves independently in an interference engine, there will be at least one valve/piston collision. The fragile valves will bend, and you’ll be faced with a costly repair.

It’s easy to check the belt for signs of premature wear — just locate it in the engine bay (usually under a plastic or metal shield that should be easy to remove) and check it for drying, fraying and discoloration.

Transmission belts powered by technology

A well-designed transmission belt drive will transmit power for many years with minimal maintenance. As such, investing in high quality belts reduces the total cost of ownership of your machinery in the long-run.

We offer a complete assortment of both standard and high performance transmission belts which can be installed in many different applications. The Transmission belts, for example, are suitable for all kinds of industrial applications and some agricultural machines. These belts have been designed to increase the service life of your application and deliver up to 40% more power than standard wrapped belts.

In addition to our offering of high quality transmission belts, an exclusive service we offer is a complete mapping of belt drives within our customers’ factories.

Advantages of Poly V belts

Poly v belts are designed for high performance on high speed smaller diameter sheaves. Our Poly V belts are wear resistant and meet the RMA standards for oil resistance, heat resistance, and static conductivity. For a smooth running low vibration quiet drive for high speed applications, Poly V drives are an effective solution.

In many more sophisticated drive systems there is a requirement for high power ratings, combined with compact drive design. This led to the development of poly v belts, which combine the advantages of high flexibility with excellent power transmission.

  • These belts eliminate belt matching and permits drive design to meet exact power or space requirements.
  • They permit cooler running and high drive efficency.

How To Measure Standard V Belts

V belts are NOT measured by diameter nor folding the belt in half. The most accurate way to measure the circumference of a belt is with a v belt measuring tool or using a cloth tape measure (Not a steel tape measure or ruler). An additional option is to wrap a small diameter string/rope around the belt, then measure the length of the string. Keep in mind v belts do stretch and unfortunately there is no specific given value for how much a belt stretches. You’ll also need to measure the width and depth to determine which section v belt you have.

All A,B,C,D,E,AX,BX belts list the inside circumference measurement after the letter of the v belt part number. Example: A88 has a 88″ inner circumference, then you add 2 inches for the A Section (Listed below) to obtain the outer circumference. If you measure the outer circumference, then you would subtract the number of inches based on the section you have (Listed below) to obtain the v belt number. This is also the same for the banded v belts. Measure each individual band for banded v belts to obtain the correct width.

How to deal with squeaky drive and fan belts

Your drive and fan belts should not be overlooked, as these car parts are crucial for proper engine operation. Both can eventually fall prey to wear, and even begin exhibiting audible signs of it such as irritating squeaking noises.

The thing is, most people will find it difficult to assess the condition of fan belts or pulleys based on sounds alone. In this article, we discuss fan belt care and identifying the source of the noise, as well as what to do.

Though these fan belts can last anywhere between 80,000-160,000km, you can prolong their life by using fan belt dressing. This product usually comes in spray cans found in hardware shops, and will help lessen wear, tear, and squeaking. Here’s how to use it:

1) Start the engine and keep your car running on idle.

2) Insert straw extension (usually comes with the can when purchased) into spray nozzle for precise application.

3) Aim spray can towards the inner lining of the belt/s while running, depressing spray nozzle for about 2 seconds. Never soak the fan belts.

There are only a handful of reasons for your fan belts to squeak. It can be a worn out belt, misaligned pulley (due to bearing wear), or a tensioner that has gone bad.

A highly effective way to localize the root of the problem is by popping your hood open and listening for the source. If you feel it’s a specific fan belt, grab a spray bottle filled with water and squirt the inner lining of the fan belt as it runs.

If the squeak goes away, your fan belt is the culprit. If a noise remains after spraying your fan belts, it could be a bad pulley or a tensioner that needs replacement.

Another telltale sign of a bad pulley or tensioner is if your fan belt does not maintain a steady, straight track during operation. Another way to inspect pulleys is by checking if they have any play while the engine is off. A good pulley should feel solid to the touch and should not show signs of side-to-side movement.

A bad pulley or tensioner must be repaired or replaced immediately, as this can speed up the wear on your fan belts. It’s best to seek a professional mechanic for the job unless you want to do it yourself. Of course if you choose the latter option, you need to have the proper knowledge, tools, parts, and experience.
