Denver, CO, October 29, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The Power Transmission unit of Gates Corporation, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of belt drive systems, now offers Gates Poly Chain® GT® Carbon™ synchronous belts in longer lengths. A clean and lightweight alternative to roller chain, the belts are used for drives requiring longer center distances and high load carrying capacities.
Across many industries, including food processing, HVAC-R, oilfield, pulp and paper, mining and water treatment, engineers and maintenance managers find that Gates synchronous belts offer the following advantages:
· The belts last three times longer than chain, and the sprockets ten times longer for a lower total cost of ownership.
· The belts do not stretch, do not require retensioning and need no lubrication.
· A stronger-than-steel carbon fiber tensile cord construction gives the drive high horsepower carrying capacity and compactness.
· The drives last longer in adverse environments.
