Features and Benefits:
Mectrol’s wide belt allows timing belts to be used in a whole new world of applications. Allows use of a synchronous belt in applications up to 18 inches wide. This allows replacement of typical flat belt where synchronization is desireable.
Polyurethane body is ideal for timing belts being used as conveying belts
Polyurethane offers extremely good abrasion resistance, much better than traditional neoprene timing belts. Urethane also is resistant to most chemicals, water and oil making it well suited for tough industrial applications. Urethane is also an ideal material to work with for custom fabrication. Surfaces can be ground to tight tolerances, profiles can easily be thermally bonded, backings can be added and holes can be punched.
FDA / USDA Approved Materials
This extra wide Mectrol belt is available in compounds that are FDA/USDA approved. In addition, these belts have a sealed edge with no exposed cord where bacteria can grow.
DuPonts™ KEVLAR is an ideal cord for many conveying applications. KEVLAR offers very low stretch which means that re-tensioning and other maintenance is not required. KEVLAR is also dimensionally very stable under a wide variety of environmental conditions.
Linear Placement of Cords
All cords in Mectrol’s linear belt are located in the belt parallel to the belt edges and exactly perpendicular to the belt teeth. As opposed to belts that are produced with a helically wound cord, these linear belts will exert little or no side force making them much easier to track. There are no exposed cords at the edge of the belt which can fray and contaminate product.
Proper selection of belt and pulleys can result in low or zero backlash in the belt and pulley system.
