Save energy and maintenance by replacing V-belt with synchronous belt drives
New drives reduce maintenance and parts' replacement costs, and produce energy savings of 8% annually.
The air conditioning V-belt drives at a 200-bed hospital were prematurely failing because of excessive sheave wear. After a Gates Design Flex analysis was performed, the drives were converted to non-slip synchronous belts. The new drives have reduced maintenance and parts replacement costs, and produced energy savings of 8% annually.
