The Red Power II V-belt line has a new cord design, improved components, and improved construction, the company says. It is available in 3-, 5-, and 8-V cross sections. According to the manufacturer, if used on new or entirely replaced drives, this wrapped V-belt can allow for fewer belts required to handle the load. The company claims this belt has about 42% higher horsepower capabilities than traditionally constructed V-belts. The company’s V-belts are vulcanized in heated grooves while rotation occurs, which is the same mode of motion and shape in which they will subsequently give service, the manufacturer states.

Optibelt Corp., 1120 W. National Ave., Addison, IL 60101; 630-628-8400; 630-628-6175 (fax); optibelt@msn.com (e-mail); www.optibelt.com (website).
