The High Risk of Low-Priced Belts - 05/06/16
Buying inexpensive V-belts sounds good in theory, but it can cost you. Downtime, repair costs, frequent replacements, and expensive energy bills add up quickly. However, when you buy high-performance Gates V-belts you have longer intervals between replacements, and less associated maintenance and downtime costs for a lower total cost of ownership.
Gates V-belts are built for maximum reliability, performance, and efficiency. They offer several money-saving features:
- Proprietary material that provides an expanded belt temperature range (-70°F to +250°F) for less cracking
- Molded-notch design for improved energy efficiency
- Precision-ground sidewalls for minimal vibration and extended belt component life
- Narrow profiles with double the power density for reduced drive width, weight, and costs
Instead of dealing with the excess maintenance and replacement costs that come from buying cheaper belts, turn to Gates V-belts for superior solutions.
