Contitech manufacture a variety of drive belts that have been specifically designed for use in the agricultural industry, which typically experiences harsh conditions. Belts such as the Contitech Variflex Z Belt must continue to perform well in wet and dirty conditions in order for the agricultural machinery to carry out its tasks.
As well as dirt and moisture, products supplied by an agricultural motors supplier like Yorkshire’s YB Components must endure through extreme weather conditions including high and low temperatures, drought and heavy rain, as well as not be affected by direct sunlight.
Here we take a look at what makes Contitech’s belts special.
Contitech Drive Belts for Agricultural Machinery
As well as the Contitech Variflex Z Belt, the manufacturer has produced wrapped V-belts and banded V-belts, as well as a multiple V-ribbed belt. The wrapped V-belts are designed with a low stretch tension member while the compound has been upgraded for high power transmission with heavy loads. Such belts are able to operate in temperatures ranging from minus-30 degrees up to 80 degrees Celsius.
The banded V-belts by Contitech are designed for drives that experience irregular load changes along with a sustained high power transmission. They are especially smooth during operation, and can be operated in even lower temperatures than both the aforementioned wrapped V-belt and the multiple ribbed belt described below.
The Contitech multiple V-ribbed belts also have a low stretch tension member that makes them ideal for high power transmission and very heavy loads. Another smooth-running power transmission belt, the multiple V-ribbed belts are popular and can be sourced through an agricultural motors supplier like Yorkshire’s YB Components. This model is best suited for more compact drives, but can also be used with reverse idlers and reverse flexing.
Benefits of Contitech Drive Belts
The benefits of using a product like the Contitech Variflex Z Belt include a reliably optimal performance even in harsh conditions as the belts are so tolerant of extreme weather conditions.
What’s more, these belts available through the UK’s leading agricultural motors supplier in Yorkshire are energy efficient and are relatively low maintenance as they do not require any lubrication.
The high reliability and lengthy service life are obviously attractive features too, while the power transmission under full load is very strong, making the Contitech drive belts popular with agricultural machinery. Their drive belts are also electrically conductive to ISO1813:2014, which is the ISO standard covering belt drives and their electrical conductivity.
