A Banded V Belt is essentially two or more V-belts & it’s linked by a common backing. This common band aligns the belt quite perfectly within the clusters and it makes the belt far stronger. It even increases the V-belt’s durability because of uniform tension, increased rigidity and even improved alignment. It can eliminate whip, belt twist & even belt turnover. Its ideal for the drives where pulsability load is present. This belting doesn’t require special pulleys.
The major advantage of DURATUF Banded belts is that the belts are built to move as a single unit on a pulley, where as a multiple belt set up is likely to have slight tension differences amongst them, leading to loss of torque. Because of their banded construction, these belts tend to prevent rollover and reduce vibration tendencies.
The products are utilized for industrial as well as agricultural purposes. Their increased durability is crucial in heavy duty applications where extreme shock loads along with inconsistent load tension are common reasons of failure.
