Continental/Goodyear's HY-T Torque Team is the Continental ContiTech line of the classical banded V-belt. Quality materials are the key to longer belt life. The HY-T Torque Team has Vytacord® tensile members treated with the 3T process which removes excessive stretch and improves dimensional stability to provide predictable performance over the life of the belt, to control stretch, so that it is minimal, predictable and uniform. Our engineered heat- and oil-resistant rubber compound impregnated envelope fabric provides positive traction, maximum flexibility and extended wear resistance.
Built to Matchmaker® specifications so all belts of the same size meet ARPM matching specifications which eliminates matching problems, improves performance and increases service life. Banded belts tame the problem drives: Individual belts are joined together by tough backing fabric so all the ribs pull together. Each rib wedges in the sheave groove for maximum traction and efficiency. Conditions such as pulsation, vibration, shock loading and misalignment are common problems for drives, causing belt whip and belt turnover. Banded belts help solve the problems.
Hy-T Wedge Torque Team belts are Matchmaker® construction, providing assurance all ribs are evenly matched for peak performance. APPLICATIONS: Classical cross-section joined belt for shock load applications. Also ideal for pulsating loads, high-capacity drives and/or for short center heavy-duty drives. Cushion rubber is fiber loaded Wingprene® contributing heat and oil resistance. Low vibration for minimal noise.Superior efficiency for improved performance. Standard stock up to 5 ribs. Larger number of ribs available.
Under 118 length Torque Team belts have molded cogs. Backing fabric provides maximum longitudinal flexibility and lateral strength.
