PowerGrip® Twin Power® Timing Belts


Twin Power® belts have teeth on both sides to provide synchronisation from both driving surfaces.

Markets/Applications
PowerGrip® Twin Power® timing belts are suitable for all industrial serpentine applications requiring rotation reversal in some driven shafts.

Features/Advantages
  • Gates Twin Power® belts have nylon facing on both tooth surfaces providing equal load carrying capabilities on either side of belt.

  • Belt capacity is equal to standard single-sided PowerGrip® timing belts.

  • Fiberglass tensile cord provides high strength, excellent flex life, and high resistance to elongation.

  • Neoprene body provides protection against grime, grease, oil, and moisture.

  • Quieter than roller chain drives and eliminates lubrication and re-tensioning to reduce maintenance and labor.

Notes
Gates PowerGrip® Twin Power® timing belt part numbers are comprised of pitch length, pitch and width. TP denotes Twin Power®.

Length—The length is shown in the first part of the belt designation. The first number is the pitch length in tenths of an inch. A TP300L075 has a 30.0” pitch length.

Pitch—The pitch of a PowerGrip® Twin Power® timing belt is the distance from center to center of the teeth (in inches). It is shown in the second part of the belt designation by a letter or letters. Part number TP300L075 has a .375” pitch. The letters correspond to pitches as follows:
XL = Extra Light = 0.200” pitch;
L = Light = 0.375” pitch;
H = Heavy = 0.500” pitch.

Width—The width is shown in the last part of the belt designation. Part number TP300L075 is .75” wide.
