Classic E (1-1/2" top width) v-belts are just that, classic in design and application. The classic E belt is the most tried and true style of v-belt in the market. E Section belts were originally designed to replace leather belts in a variety of industries including aggregates, rock crushers, mining and oilfield supply. E belts are not considered to be light duty belts and are designed with a 40° angle to "wedge" the belt into the groove of the pulley. The greater the load, the greater the wedging action. The manufacturing process combines a rubber compound with a polyester cord to increase strength and stability.
These E Section belts are conventional v-belts suitable for all standard industrial applications. Standard operating temperatures ranging from -1° F through 158° F.
