Designed to Outperform
Our High Performance Composite (HPC) V-Belts are uniquely designed and incorporate custom composite materials which provide a number of time- and cost-saving benefits to maintenance engineers and equipment designers:
|Longer belt life
||Minimized maintenance time
|Easier, faster installation
||Reduced V-belt stock
|Reduced drive vibration
||Simplified drive design
Your Alternative Choice . . .
Made from custom polyurethane elastomers reinforced with multiple plies of polyester fabric, Fenner Drives’ High Performance Composite (HPC) V-belts offer problem solving alternatives to conventional endless wrapped rubber V-belts of classical and metric SP wedge cross sections.
Our product range is comprised of PowerTwist Plus and NuTLink V-Belts for classical section drives and SuperTLink V-Belts for applications using metric wedge SP rated belts. Our PowerTwist Derivatives are specialty PowerTwist belts, which mean they carry all of PowerTwist Plus’ benefits with value-added qualities for your very specific applications!
While simple in concept, Fenner Drives’ composite V-belts deliver outstanding performance, solving many of the field problems traditionally associated with conventional rubber V-belts.
Drop-In Permanent Upgrade
There’s no need to change associated drive components! PowerTwist Plus, NuTLink or SuperTLink V-Belts offer standard industry power ratings and will run in standard pulley grooves. Rest assured, when fitting each type, it’s only the belt that changes.
The Right Belt… Now, Guaranteed!
Having the right belt on hand saves you TIME & MONEY. With Fenner Drives’ HPC V-Belts, you will always have the right V-belt on hand. It comes in the same standard cross sections as rubber V-belts, and you can make a belt any length you need by hand in seconds.
PowerTwist Plus, NuTLink and SuperTLink V-Belts are permanent replacements. There is no need to run back to the job and replace it with a rubber V-belt. Simply fit it and move on to your next job.
Longer Belt Life in Harsh Operating Conditions
HPC V-Belts are manufactured from high performance polyurethane/polyester composite materials which ensure excellent durability even in the most demanding conditions. HPC V-Belts from Fenner Drives will outperform conventional rubber V-belts in handling hostile environments, including exposure to oil, grease, water and most common industrial and agricultural chemicals and solvents. They are also more resistant to abrasion and will operate, with no loss in performance, at a more extreme temperature range — from -40°C to 116°C (-40°F to 240°F).
Reduced V-Belt Stock…Any Belt, Any Time
With PowerTwist Plus, NuTLink and SuperTLink, there’s no need to maintain inventory of numerous different endless rubber belts to cover all your drives. Carry a pack each of A/13 and B/17 in stock and you’re almost 100% covered with a significant reduction in working capital tied up in spares.
Easier and Faster Installation
Unique “quick connect” belt designs provide for easier and faster belt installation, even on captured or restricted access drives — no tools required. Belts are easily made up to the required length, by hand, in seconds and can be rolled onto a drive just like a bicycle chain. No need to dismantle drive components or change existing pulleys as HPC V-Belts run in industry standard pulley grooves.
Minimised Maintenance Time
Like all power transmission belts, Fenner Drives’ HPC V-Belts may require retensioning after an initial “run in” period. But unlike conventional V-belts, with PowerTwist Plus, NuTLink and SuperTLink, retensioning is simple; just roll the belt off, take out a link and roll it back on — no need to move any drive components. No time — no trouble.
Simplified Drive Design
The unique “quick connect” design of our Classical and SP rated composite V-belts allow designers considerable freedom in their choice of optimum drive configuration and placement with resultant savings in component costs and assembly times.
As PowerTwist Plus, NuTLink and SuperTLink are effectively self-tensioning on installation and exhibit low operational stretch; there is no need to incorporate belt tensioners and sliding motor bases into drive designs. Additionally, drives can be optimally mounted on/in equipment where such positioning would be impossible with conventional V-belts when considering ease of subsequent field maintenance. Plus, Fenner Drives’ composite V-belts can be used on misaligned or angled pulleys up to 17.5 degrees without significant reduction in belt life.
Reduced Drive Vibration & System Noise
PowerTwist Plus, NuTLink and SuperTLink do not have the continuous tension cords found in conventional V-belts. As a result, transmitted vibration in the drive system can be reduced by 50% or more. Consequently, system noise is reduced and, as a bonus, bearing life extended.
Solving Big Problems on Big Drives
With industry standard power ratings in belt sections up to C/22, NuTLink and SuperTLink are heavy duty workhorses. These belts are perfectly suited for those big shock loaded applications with multi-belt drives.
