GATES PREDATOR® POWERBAND®

HEAVY DUTY WRAPPED NARROW SECTION JOINED V-BELT WITH ARAMID CORD

Gates Logo

Gates’ Predator® PowerBand® belt design offers a solution for drives where single belts vibrate, turn over or jump off the pulleys. It consists of several V-belts joined together by a permanent, high-strength tie band allowing the belts to work together as one unit. The Predator® Powerband® belt is especially designed for demanding applications and harsh environments and offers a high resistance to vibration. Predator® Powerband® are available in SPBP, SPCP, 5VP/15JP and 8VP section.

CONSTRUCTION

  • Narrow cross-sections.
  • Strong tie band joins the back of all belts.
  • Flex bonded aramid tensile cords.
  • Double layer bare back fabric cover.
  • Fibre-loaded compound for improved belt stability.
  • Gates curves provide full contact with pulley grooves for uniform loading of cords, uniform wear and increased belt life.
  • The belt will not catch fire from heatbuild-up, even with severe slippage.
