Regal Beloit Corp. introduced its new Browning TorqTitan notched belt.

According to Regal, the TorqTitan notched belt utilizes innovative elastomers, optimized cord arrangements and notch profiles to make it the most power-dense and energy-efficient V-belt that it ever produced.

The high-horsepower belt outperforms similarly sized belts in a range of applications, Regal says, while being 30 percent stronger. No re-tensioning is needed, the company adds, and the belt requires neither maintenance nor downtime.

“The TorqTitan notched belt is the industry’s first bandless zero-maintenance V-belt,” says Jesse Dupuis, director of marketing for the HVAC industry group at Regal. “The belt’s innovative minimal-stretch cord technology and a proprietary cord treatment process keep it from suffering from severe tension decay in the first hours after installation. So, no run-in period or any re-tensioning is required. This is especially convenient in difficult-to-reach belt drives. No re-tensioning means no machine or production downtime and [it] helps reduce downtime costs for maintenance and plant engineers.”

The specially engineered shape in the notch design reduces bending stresses for improved flexibility, increased heat dissipation, and better performance on small pulley diameters, Regal adds. This improved flexibility helps increase belt life and lowers energy consumption while improving drive performance, the company says.

The TorqTitan belt, with newly formulated EPDM rubber material, resists hardening to avoid cracking in temperatures up to 260 degrees, making it the ideal solution for hot-air HVAC applications or other high-temperature environments. Similarly, the belt maintains exceptional performance in extreme cold conditions as low as minus 58, Regal says.
