A major Australian quarry was experiencing problems with their current drive system. Existing belts were only achieving a short service life (6 months maximum), due to badly worn belts, pulleys and loose belts. The drive components required replacement.

Solution Description
Belts = 8 x SPC4500P Predator® V-belts
DriveR Pulleys = 8/SPC375
DriveN Pulley = 8/SPC375

Benefits of Gates Product

The drive has now been running for over 12 months without adjustment. The Kevlar® tensile cords inside the Predator® belts allow shock loads to be dealt with easily and tension is maintained to provide constant crushing.
Due to narrower standard pulleys and a decreased number of belts the quarry saved over $6000 on installing this new Predator® belt drive.
This doesn’t even include reduced downtime and maintenance costs.
