PowerTwist Drive is engineered to maintain the optimal belt tension throughout the belt’s life. By eliminating the need to re-tension, you can expect reduced labor cost and increased unit efficiency.
Extensive testing was conducted to track the tension decay of PowerTwist Drive versus PowerTwist Standard and a comparable rubber V-belt. Test results show that PowerTwist Drive maintained the required tension throughout the duration of the test. PowerTwist Standard and rubber V-belts require re-tensioning to maintain proper belt tension.
