NEW CONTI-V FO Pioneer belt delivers more power and service life
The new CONTI-V FO Pioneer Raw-edge V-belt from ContiTech delivers more power and a longer service life.
- Raw-edge V-belt on basis of ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber (EPDM)
- FO Pioneer provides improved product properties compared to the FO Advance
ContiTech Power Transmission Group has launched a high performance raw-edge V-belt for drive solutions in machine and plant engineering. The FO Pioneer from ContiTech is a high performance raw-edge V-belt for drive solutions in machine and plant engineering.
Compared to the FO Advance, the FO Pioneer offers up to 20 percent more power transmission and longer service life – a development that demonstrates the extensive material expertise of the specialist in rubber and plastics technology.
The raw-edge drive belt is oriented towards the needs of the industry. It owes its improved product properties to its base material ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber. EPDM is dynamically more stable than standard rubber compounds and has a higher temperature resistance, ranging from -40 °C to + 120 °C
A sub-construction made of EPDM forms the basis, a tensile member made of polyester and a cotton cover provide more stability. The new belt is resistant to dust and tropical conditions, it is also conductive according to ISO 1813 as well as partially oil resistant. FO Pioneer replaces the FO Advance in dimensions up to 2,932 mm.
