GATES TWIN POWER®

DOUBLE SIDED RUBBER SYNCHRONOUS BELT

Gates Logo

Due to its double and directly opposite teeth, Twin Power® synchronous belts ensure high loading capacity on contra-rotating drives and ensure smooth running and high flexibility. They are available with the classical trapezoidal tooth profile and also with the unique GT tooth profile. A Twin Power® GT2 belt has twice the power rating of a Twin Power® HTD® belt. It is characterised by extraordinary load-carrying power and high tooth jump resistance ensuring a positive non-slip drive. In addition, the belt runs at very low noise. Twin Power® is available in PowerGrip® GT2 8MGT and 14MGT, HTD® 5M and PowerGrip® XL, L And H pitches.

CONSTRUCTION

  • Similar in construction to PowerGrip® classical synchronous and PowerGrip® GT2 belts: strong fibre glass tensile member precisionformed elastomeric teeth and body.
  • Wear resistant nylon fabric on both tooth sides.
  • Standard widths per belt pitch in mm and belt width code:
  • Twin Power® PowerGrip® GT2
    • 8MGT: 20, 30, 50, 85 mm
      14MGT: 40, 55, 85, 115, 170 mm
    • Twin Power® PowerGrip® HTD®
    • 5M: 9, 15, 25 mm

  • Other widths available on request.

BENEFITS

  • High loading capacity.
  • Twin Power® can transmit up to 100% of its maximum
    rated load from either side of the belt; alternatively, it
    can transmit a load on both sides - provided the sum
    of the loads does not exceed the maximum capacity.
  • Non-slip positive drive.
  • Running at low noise.
  • Free of lubrication and maintenance.
  • Temperature range: -30°C to + 100°C.
