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.

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).



Stone Conveyor Drive

Problem Heavy shock loads plus exposure to abrasive aggregate and dust were causing excessive wear and premature failure of rubber SPB metric V‑belts.
Solution Fitting high performance SuperTLink SP Wedge Belts provided greater resistance to the harsh operating conditions. Belt life was increased five times with the link belt design absorbing vibratory stresses.

Reduced V-Belt Stock…
Any Belt, Any Time

With PowerTwist Plus, NuTLink and SuperTLink, there is 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.



HVAC Drives

Problem A facility has over 200 air handling units using more than 130 different belt lengths. At any one time there were over 1,700 spare belts on site. This stock was costly, difficult to manage and correct replacement belts were always difficult to locate.
Solution On upgrading to PowerTwist Plus V‑Belts, the maintenance team now carries boxes of the red belt 24/7. Drives are now serviced quickly without wasting time returning to the belt crib to pick up specific belt sizes. Stock was reduced to just a few boxes of 3L, A/13 and B/17 sections.

Easier & 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.



Bowling Centre Pinsetter

Problem Replacing endless V‑belts on a pinsetter is a maintenance nightmare with its many “stacked,” hard to reach drives.
Solution Making to length and installing quick connect PowerTwist Plus V‑Belts can be accomplished with nothing more than a flick of the wrist.

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.



Brick Manufacture

Problem Fitting replacement endless V‑belts on this high heat drive entailed totally stripping down equipment, removing pulleys and then reassembling. This process would take 2 – 3 days
Solution Installing NuTLink V‑Belts reduced downtime tojust two hours with the added bonus of longer belt life.

Simplified Drive Design

The unique link design of Classical and SP rated HPC V-Belts allows designers considerable freedom in their choice of optimum drive configuration with savings in component costs and assembly times. As HPC V-Belts are effectively self-tensioning on installation and exhibit low operational stretch, there’s no need to incorporate belt tensioners and sliding motor bases into drive designs. Plus, drives can be optimally mounted on/in equipment to ensure quick and easy field maintenance.



Airport Baggage Handling

Problem Chain was originally specified to drive rollers in a complex curve/loop configuration. Each roller was offset at an 8° angle. The stresses on the chain of running between angled sprockets caused frequent premature chain failure.
Solution Roller drives were converted to run SuperTLink SP Wedge Belts. Not only did SuperTLink handle the drive misalignment with ease, system noise was reduced by 40% compared to the earlier chaindriven set up.

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.



Woodworking Equipment

Problem The continuous tension cords in conventional V‑belts were allowing vibrations to be transmitted from the table saw motor to the cutting blade. This caused “blade chatter” leading to imperfect rough cuts.
Solution Fitting PowerTwist Plus V‑Belts dampened transmitted vibrations and reduced system noise significantly. V‑Belt‑driven woodworking equipment will benefit from upgrading to the red belt — perfect cuts and finishes every time!

Solving B Big Problems on Big Drives

With industry standard power ratings in belt sections up to C, NuTLink and SuperTLink are heavy duty workhorses. These belts are perfectly suited for those shock loaded with drives. big applications multi-belt



Stone Saw

Problem When it was time to replace the rubber belts on this stone saw, belt installation was measured in days and the worn pulley grooves made it almost impossible to get even power transmission across the belts.
Solution By using SuperTLink SP Wedge Belts to replace the rubber belts, installation time was cut to a couple of hours. The ability to make the belts to any length allowed each belt to be custom sized to compensate for the worn pulleys. As an added bonus, the link design effectively absorbed shock loads in this powerful system.

Antistatic V-Belts


Take the Shock Out Of Electrostatic Build Up

Have an application where static electricity is getting you all charged up?

PowerTwist Plus Antistatic is the answer… with all the benefits of standard PowerTwist Plus and the best antistatic properties of any V-belt on the market, easily passing the ISO 1813:1998 standard. While the standard allows the resistance of the drive belt to be as high as 3.6 mega ohms (3,600,000 ohms), PowerTwist Plus Antistatic typically registers well below 50 ohms, while even the best so called antistatic rubber belts usually measure between a shocking 10,000 – 200,000 ohms. And unlike antistatic rubber V-belts whose antistatic properties may be adversely affected by humidity levels, environmental conditions and wear, PowerTwist Plus Antistatic’s proprietary construction allows the belt’s antistatic properties to perform in the harshest conditions.

Fuel Transfer Pumps

Problem Fuel transfer pumps are often located in remote locations and exposed to harsh environmental conditions causing traditional rubber V-belts to fail prematurely.
Solution With the advent of PowerTwist Plus Antistatic, fuel pump service technicians were able to tap into all the benefits of a Fenner Drives HPC V-Belt while providing a safe and reliable solution. Belt life on the pumps was increased and service technicians always have the correct belt on hand in these remote locations./p>
