Wedge belts with 30% more power

Fourth Quarter 2020 Shaft power components

New to BMG’s extensive range of Fenner power transmission components are Fenner Quattro Plus Twin Wrap (TW) wedge belts, that transmit 30% more power than conventional belts. “These maintenance-free wedge belts, with a wrapped chloroprene rubber construction, have a two-ply higher modulus polyester cord outer jacket to reduce belt elongation and improve stability in tough operating conditions,” says business unit manager, Carlo Beukes. “They cope extremely well in harsh conditions and are maintenance-free, which is a major advantage where there is a shortage of skilled labour.”

The asymmetric weave double jacket of the belts is heat and oil resistant, offering increased durability and improved abrasion resistance. Other important features include high performance, maximum drive efficiency and extended service life. These flexible belts, which offer up to 96% energy efficiency at optimum performance, have been designed for easy installation as a permanent replacement, with minimal downtime. No dismantling of equipment is necessary.

They are suitable for counter-bending, back-tensioners and clutches, and can withstand an extended temperature range of between -30°C and 80°C. Fenner’s precision build technology eliminates the need for matching. This range conforms with all international standards, including BS 3790, ISO 4184, DIN 7753 and API specifications. Fenner Quattro Plus belts also meet the highest standards for static conductivity (ISO 1813 standards). These belts are particularly well suited for heavy industrial applications, including crushers, heavy duty conveyors, waste compactors and pumps.
