A VSI cone crusher drive required pulley replacement. The cost of replacing the standard 8V pulleys meant importing from the USA or machining them in Australia from a billet of steel, both options being extremely expensive.

DriveR Pulley = 4/SPC380
DriveN Pulley = 4/SPC560
Benefits of Gates Product
By utilising Gates Predator® belts, we were able to redesign this drive using the more common SPC belt cross section. This meant standard, off the shelf SPC pulleys could be sourced locally and SPC Predator® belts were installed, providing a more cost effective solution. Even though the new drive uses fewer belts, the power capacity of the Kevlar corded Predator® belt means the full 185kW is easily delivered.
