THE POWER YOU WANT, THE SAFETY YOU NEVER HAD
Antistatic power transmission belts are a must in ATEX environments. To ensure the highest safety standards, their capacity to safely dissipate static electricity should meet the required levels over the lifetime of the belt - and not only when new. The Poly Chain® Carbon Volt® belt is the only belt in the market that meets the ISO 9563 standard over the complete lifespan of the belt. Its patented static-conductive jacket construction transfers static electricity safely to carbon tensile cords, away from the driven side of the application – making it your safest and strongest option for applications in ATEX environments.

CONSTRUCTION

  • Static conductive (ISO 9563) and can as such be used in the conditions described in the directive 2014/34/EU- ATEX.
  • Chemically resistant polyurethane compound that ensures optimum adhesion with the carbon tensile cords.
  • Carbon fibre reinforcement for high strength and length stability.
  • Nylon fabric facing that acts as a wear resistant surface, protecting the teeth and keeping frictional losses to a minimum.
  • Curvilinear tooth profile for improved stress distribution and higher overall loading.

BENEFITS

  • Maintains static conductivity over belt lifetime.
  • 400% greater capacity than HTD belts.
  • 5% energy savings over V-belts.
  • 99% efficiency for life of the drive.
  • Reduced maintenance and downtime.
  • Reduce weight and overhung loads.
  • Inert to most acids, chemicals and water.
  • Standard widths of 12, 21, 36, 62 mm (8MGT) and 20, 37, 68, 90, 125 mm (14MGT). Other widths available on request.
  • On demand available in PowerPainT™ construction, to eliminate paint contamination risk (see p. 40).
  • Temperature range: -54°C to + 85°C.
  • Perfect fit on Poly Chain® GT profile pulleys.
