Multi-ribbed belt design features the power transmission capabilities of a V belt with the flexibility of a flat belt. This belt runs cooler and lasts longer than a standard V Belt. Even distribution of pressure over all parts of the drive surface provide uniform load distribution, smooth running, better tolerance to shock and greater stability – resulting in longer life
The part number is the belt size. The first number gives the number of ribs i.e. 6 is 6 rib. The letters indicate the rib section i.e. PK means belt length in millimetres. PKE indicates an elastic or stretch fit belt. PKD indicates a double sided multi rib belt. The end number series indicates the length of the belt in millimetres i.e. 1013 is 1013mm effective length.
