Advantages that speak for Optibelt
Aramidcord - extremely low stretch
2 times more power capacity than a standard wedge V-Belt
For heavy loaded drives
Suitable for back bend idlers
Temperature range -30°C to +100°C
For 15 years, the Astec Industries group has been producing road construction equipment such as patented road milling machines whose special requirements have caused V-belts to fail over and over again. After performing calculations and conducting field tests under the most extreme conditions, Optibelt application engineers suggested the use of special Optibelt kraftbands with aramid cords.
Changing over to optibelt BLUE POWER high performance belts guarantees that road milling machines will work at a smooth rhythm.
Enormous tumbling mills are used for crushing raw materials. The drives move a holding capacity ranging from 40,000 to 160,000 litres.
In order to optimally comply with requirements, increase reliability and minimise the level of stretching, Optibelt V-belts with aramid-fibre tension cords are recommended.
