Super HC® PowerBand® Belts


The PowerBand® construction allows multiple belts to function as a single unit, with even load distribution and each strand fitting securely in the sheave groove.

  Markets/Applications
Recommended for multiple V-belt drives exposed to pulsating or heavy shock loads which can make belts whip, turn over or jump off the drive.

Features/Advantages
  • The Tie Band assures high lateral rigidity, guiding the belt in a straight line and preventing it from coming off the drive.
  • Gates Curves provide proper cord support and full contact with the sheave-groove for equal loading and uniform wear.
  • Flex-Bonded Cords are strongly bonded to the body of the belt resulting in equal load distribution and the absorption of bending stress without cord deterioration.
  • The Flex-Weave® Cover is a patented fabric construction for longer cover life, providing extended protection to the belt core from oil, dirt and heat. 
  • Meets RMA oil and heat resistant standards.
  • Meets RMA static conductivity requirements.
Size Range/Availability
  • Made-To-Order Belt Lengths are available in any size from: 3V (45 to 220 inch), 5V (50 to 660 inch) and 8V (100 to 660 inch). Check with Customer Service for minimum order quantity and manufacturing lead time.

Notes
Belt part number is constructed by placing the (#) number of strands required followed by a slash (/) in front of the belt size.

For Example, 5/3V800 represents a 3V800 with 5 joined strands.

Belt product number is 8 or 9 digits constructed of product series prefix, number of strands, and belt length.

For example, 93855080 represents a "3V" section PowerBand (9385) with 5 strands (5) that is 80.0 inches (080) long.
