Underwater Belt Applications

Wed, 11/01/2017 - 13:20
Have an underwater drive application and don't know what belt to use?

A good option for both fresh and salt water environments would be the Gates Poly Chain GT Carbon belt.

The Polyurethane in these belts assist in its ability to withstand the submersion, and is more resistant to wear and swelling than the standard rubber belts.

If you are designing for a drive underwater, there are a few things to adhere to; Mainly:

  1. Use non-corrosive/anti-rust metals (i.e. stainless steel)
  2. Do not exceed 10,000 feet of water depth
  3. Do not exceed 4,400 psi of water pressure
