Choosing the right belting solution is the prerequisite for maintaining a high level of efficiency even at critical conditions. Fenner Drives is the name often associated with a top-quality range of HPC (High-Performance Composite) Link V-Belts. Made from custom polyurethane elastomers, reinforced with multiple plies of polyester fabric, these V-Belts are serving as the best alternatives to the conventional rubber V-belts. Suitable for heavy-duty and shock loaded applications, Fenner Link V-belts are extensively used in baggage handling systems, Pumps and compressors, HVAC, agricultural equipment and more.
Over the years, the Fenner Belt range has gained immense popularity in the engineering industry owing to its time-saving and cost-cutting benefits. And, if you want to avail the benefits of these Link V-Belts, MK Industrial Suppliers can help you. We are the leading distributor of Fenner Drives Link V-belts, sourcing the products directly from Fenner Drives and delivering them to you. Our connection with the trusted manufacturer (Fenner Drives) has always paid off well for the customers looking for quality industrial tool supply.
Benefits of Fenner Belt
- • Industry Standard Power Rating:
Similar to rubber V-Belts, Fenner Drives Link V-Belts come in standard cross-sections whose length can be easily adjusted to meet the process requirements. Comprising of PowerTwist Plus, NuTLink, and SuperTLink, the Fenner Drives Link V-Belts range is available in standard industry power ratings and can run in standard pulley grooves. These Link V-Belts act as permanent upgrades that save money and time and do not require changes in the associated drive components.
- • Highly Durable:
Manufactured from high-performance polyurethane/polyester composite materials, Fenner Drives Link V-Belts are highly durable and optimally functional even in the harsh operating conditions. Showing resistance against industrial chemicals, oils, grease, and other solvents, the Link V-Belts score over rubber belts in handling the hostile environment. They are also resistant to abrasions that ensure high performance even at high temperatures, ranging from 40°C to 116°C (-40°F to 240°F).
- • Reduces V-Belt Inventory:
With Fenner Drives Link V-Belts, the need to manage and maintain the whole stock of V-Belts has been considerably reduced. The Fenner Drives Link V-Belt range including PowerTwist Plus, NuTLink and SuperTLink rules out the need for a facility to maintain an inventory of different rubber belts to cover all your drives. All you need is a pack of each, Z/10, A/13, B/17 And C/22 in stock, this will ensure quick servicing, easy belt replacement and smooth functioning.
- • Easy Installation:
The ‘quick connect’ belt designs provide easier and faster belt installation, even on restricted access drives. Belts can be easily made up to the required length, by hand, and can be conveniently rolled onto a drive like a bicycle chain. Moreover, as the HPC Link V-Belts run on the industry standards pulley grooves, the need to dismantle drive components or change existing pulleys are eliminated.
- • Minimal Maintenance:
Right belt tension is very important for the operational efficiency of the V-Belt drive. Fenner Drives HPC Link V-Belts, like other power transmission belts, might require re-tensioning after an initial “run in” period. But unlike conventional V-belts, with Fenner Drives Link V-Belts re-tensioning is simple; as there is no need to make any changes in the drive components.
- • Simplified Drive Design:
The unique Link design of Classical and SP rated HPC Link V-Belts allows designers to choose the optimum drive configuration, facilitating savings in component costs and assembly times. With HPC Link V-Belts having a self-tensioning feature and exhibiting low operational stretch, the need to incorporate belt tensioners and sliding motor bases into drive designs are eliminated. Further, there is greater flexibility as to the placement of the drive. It can be mounted on/in equipment to ensure quick and easy field maintenance.
- • Reduced Vibration and System Noise:
Unlike conventional Rubber V-Belts, the high-performing Fenner Drives Link V-Belts, PowerTwist Plus, NuTLink and SuperTLink do not have continuous tension chords that often result in maximum vibrations. Hence, vibrations transmitted in the drive system can be effectively reduced considerably. Consequently, the system noise is also reduced and bearing life is extended.
From the above points, it can be concluded that the Fenner Drives Link V-Belts are the perfect replacement for the conventional Rubber V-Belts. It can solve many of the field problems traditionally associated with conventional Rubber V-belts and hence the Fenner Drives Link V-Belts are highly recommended for high performing operations.
