GATES POWERGRIP® HTD® 8M, 14M & 20M

WRAPPED, NARROW SECTION/CLASSICAL SECTION DOUBLE SIDED V-BELT

Gates Logo

The curvilinear PowerGrip® HTD® tooth geometry eliminates stress concentration at tooth roots and allows higher power capacity and longer life. PowerGrip® HTD® 8M, 14M and 20M belts are used in high performance drives in the machine tool, paper and textile industries where durability and low maintenance are required.

CONSTRUCTION

  • Special curvilinear tooth form improves stress
    distribution and allows higher overall loading.
  • Precisely formed and accurately spaced elastomeric
    teeth ensure correct positioning in the pulley grooves.
  • Tough nylon facing protects the tooth surfaces.
  • Fibre glass tensile member provides the required strength combined with excellent flex life and high resistance to elongation.
  • Durable elastomeric backing protects against environmental pollution as well as frictional wear if power is transmitted from the back of the belt.
  • Belts conform to ISO13050:2014.
  • Standard widths of 20, 30, 50, 85 mm (8M); 40, 55, 85, 115, 170 mm (14M); 115, 170, 230, 290, 340 mm (20M). Other widths available on request.

BENEFITS

  • Load capacities up to 1,000 kW.
  • No slippage. PowerGrip® HTD® belt teeth mesh smoothly with pulley grooves, reducing speed variations.
  • Wide speed range.
  • Economical operation. No lubrication needed, no need for adjustment due to stretch and wear.
  • High mechanical efficiency. The belt construction minimizes heat build-up and, since friction is not required to transmit the load, belt tensions are reduced.
  • Constant driven speeds.
  • Long trouble-free service life (because of excellent abrasion resistance) in many applications where metal components like chains and gears wear out in a matter of months.
  • PowerGrip® HTD® 14M: static conductive (ISO 9563) and can as such be used in the conditions described
    in the Directive 2014/34/EU- ATEX.
  • Temperature range: -30°C to + 100°C.
  • Perfect fit on HTD® profile pulleys.
