The A profile Torque-Flex cogged V-belt has a 0.50” top width, is 0.31” high, is built by Goodyear Engineered Products with Vytacord tension members, and is suitable for industrial applications where mechanical or environmental abuse is a factor. The belt is commonly used for small-sheave, high-tension drives and short-center applications. It is static conductive, making it appropriate in the presence of explosive gases, liquids, powders, and other substances where the possibility of static sparks must be kept to a minimum.
The Torque-Flex belt is built with Vytacord tension members, a synthetic reinforcement that increases overall tensile strength and lends dimensional stability so that drive performance is more consistent and predictable over the life of the belt. The Torque-Flex V-belt has 25-30 percent higher power ratings than standard V-belts resulting in increased energy efficiency of up to four percent, depending on the sheave diameter. The belt is backed in oil- and abrasion-resistant fabric, providing longitudinal flexibility and lateral strength to the belt. The cushion of the Torque-Flex V-belt is crush-resistant, reducing downtime and belt replacement cost over time.
Classical, cogged belts are designed for operating at higher speeds over small diameter pulleys and short-center distances. They can be used in multiple V-belt drives. They are constructed to withstand oily, dirt-filled manufacturing environments and the heat of the outdoors, and are frequently used in abusive environments such as farming and manufacturing,
