The HY-T Wedge Torque Team 3VX profile, cogged, 0.375” top width, 4-rib banded V-belt 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 pulsating loads, vibrating drives, and short-center applications. This cogged belt has a 0.375” top width, is approximately 1.5” in total width, and is manufactured in a 4-ribbed joined construction for increased flexibility and heat dissipation. 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 HY-T Wedge belt’s narrow design allows the use of smaller or fewer belts than classical V-belts to transmit an equivalent load, maximizing power transmission efficiency by reducing drive weight and size. It 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. Cogs on the inner surface of the belt increase air flow to dissipate heat and prolong belt life. The belt is backed in oil-and abrasion-resistant fabric, providing longitudinal flexibility and lateral strength to the joined belt. The fabric bonds to the V-sections to maintain the singularity of the belt. Banded belts are a collection of individual belts that transmits horsepower to the power transmission drive as a single belt. Frequently used in abusive environments such as farming and manufacturing, they are constructed to withstand oily, dirt-filled manufacturing environments and the heat of the outdoors.
