Thermoid Maxipower Banded v-belts are molded with a vulcanized band into a unitized belt set. The individual V's are spaced to permit operation in MPTA standard groove 3V, 5V and 8V sheaves.
Thermoid has gone beyond the ordinary to produce a remarkable wedge-type, multiple drive belt - Maxipower.the deep-V design of the Maxipower belt enables a smaller belt to carry a bigger load. It can operate at higher speeds up to 6,500 feet-per-minute.Belt width and groove spacing are narrower and that reduces sheave face width 30% to 50%. Decreased sheave width means less shaft overhang, which places a lighter load on bearings and increases bearing life.As belt drive systems are designed or redesigned, consider Maxipower belts. Belts that will do the job more economically and use less space.Three cross-sections of Maxipower belts handle jobs usually requiring five sizes of classical v-belts. Maxipower belts are oil and heat resistant and static conducting.
