Applications in the oil & gas industry

Optibelt Oil and gas fan power

Oil production with PCP pumps

Smooth operation thanks to Optibelt

Optibelt application PCP pumps

Apart from typical drilling tools, PCP pumps (“Progressing Cavity Pumps”) that place great strain on V-belts due to their small pulley diameter and high performance are also used for oil production.

Optibelt application rod pumps

The oil field located to the west of the United States impressively demonstrates the fascination of technology. Each of the pumps conveys up to 250 barrels of oil a day. The reliable long-term performance of the pumps places high requirements on the quality of the drive belts.
