There are several ways that a timing belt can be identified.
Many times the timing belt part number and the name of the timing belt manufacturer will be printed on the timing belt and will still be legible. While this is the ideal situation, there are many times when the timing belt part number is either incomplete, vague, or from a belt manufacturing company that is either out of business or has a timing belt numbering system that isn't easily cross referenced.
If the timing belt isn't marked adequately, there are times when the timing pulleys are marked adequately to determine the pitch and profile of the timing belt. The pitch of the timing belt is the distance from the center of one tooth to the center of the next tooth. The problem is that there are several different tooth profiles or shapes for 3mm, 5mm, 8mm and 14mm pitches not easily discernible without proper tooling. These include the Conti AT5/T5, HTD/ STD, Power Grip HTD/ Power Grip GT2 and Poly Chain profiles.
If you can determine the exact pitch and tooth profile of the timing belt, you can narrow down your choices rather quickly by measuring the width of the timing belt and the overall length of the timing belt. Alternatively, you could count the teeth or cogs on the timing belt and multiply by the pitch to get the length of the timing belt.
The unknown that remains is the material of the timing belts. Common materials include neoprene and polyurethane. Neoprene is a rubbery material that can flake after extended use and is typically black and fairly flexible. Polyurethane is typically slick and is a little more rigid, especially in larger sizes. Often times, polyurethane will be clear or white, but it can also be black.
Common pitches and profiles include XL (.200"), L (.375"), MXL (.080"), H (.500") HTD (3mm, 5mm, and 8mm, 14mm), STD (2mm, 3mm, 5mm, 8mm, and 14mm), T2.5, T5, T10, AT5, AT10, The last set of numbers,  refer to the width of the belt. On metric sizes the number is how wide the timing belt is in millimeters. On standard sizes the number breaks down in inches with a leading zero for sizes under an inch such as: 012=0.125", 025=0.25", 037=0.375", 050=0.500", 075=0.75", 100=1.00", 150=1.50", 200=2.00", and 300=3.00"

V Belt Manual

1. Classical V Belts:

. The first of the V belts to enter in power transmission. 
. Maximum permissible speed = 30m/s
. In  application where reverse idlers are not used, classical V belts are more  advantageous other       than because of smaller heights.

2. Wedge V  Belts: 

. Wedge belts can transmit higher power 1.5-2 times than of classical belts with the same top width.
. Maximum permissible belt speed = 42m/s
. Wedge belt is primarily used in new drives to achieve space saving.
. Extensive use in industrial application from light duty application to heavy duty application.

3. Narrow V Belts: 

. Constructionally & properties wise Wedge V belts & Narrow V belts are same, the only difference additional ridge top provided in Narrow belts.
. Maximum permissible speed = 42m/s

4. Hexagonal V Belts:

. Hexagonal V belts are also called double V belts.
. Hexagonal belts are used where several pulleys in the same plane driven clockwise & anticlockwise simultaneously.
. Maximum permissible speed 30m/s

5. Banded V Belt: 

Banded belts are made from classical, wedge or narrow belts with strong tie band over them

6. Cogged V Belt:

. Cogegd belts are used where pully dia is very small , max speed is required under high temperature environment.

Hello Everyone.....!!!

Today we shall share the difference between Conti CXP & CXA Timing Belt.

CXP & CXA Rubber Belt Properties:
  • Oil resistant to a degree
  • Tropics resistant
  • UV and ozone
  • Electrically conductive (Anti-static) to ISO9563
  • Temperatures ranging from -20°C to +100°C
  • Increased power ratings

CXP heavy-duty, high speed drive belt

The CXP range has a specifically developed tension member and exceptional material bonding.
The teeth and the belt top are made from a synthetic Rubber mix with high tear resistance and enhanced shear resistance, to ensure reliable sustained power transmission at belt speeds up to 50m/s.
The CXP range is used where high power must be transmitted above 1000RPM.

Glass Fibre Tension Member

These tensile members have a high flexural fatigue strength along with a highly reliable power transmission capability up to 50m/s.

CXA heavy-duty, low speed drive belt

The CXA range combines exceptionally high tensile strength with the stable synthetic Rubber compound to transmit extremely high torque levels at belt speeds of up 20m/s. The CXA range is used where high torque must be transmitted under 1000RPM.

What Types of Plastics Are Thermoplastic Belts Made From?

The beauty of the thermoplastic conveyor belt is the belts versatility. Thermoplastic belts have a broad range of chemical compounds (polymer and monomer chains). Based on the manufacturing and conveying requirements from the thermoplastic, varying types of thermoplastic belts can be manufactured to suit an array of industries.

Each polymer compound varies in it’s properties and the elements for which it can perform and is used in conveyor belt solutions. 

For industrial conveyor belts, the specific types of thermoplastic polymers are; polyurethane (PU), , polyethelene (PE) silicone(Si) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). 

Polyurethane Belts (PU)

PU belts are manufactured following FDA approved compounds and manufacturing methods to ensure that the thermoplastic conveyor belt is suitable for the food manufacturing industry. This belt can also be used across pharmaceutical, metal transportation and textile industries. 

PU conveyor belts are used in these industries due to key features of the thermoplastic polymer. PU belts have a good mid-range temperature resistance of between -30°C to 60°C(Regular Temp) which allows the belt to perform in sub-zero freezing conditions perfect for the pharmaceutical industry and manufacturing of chemicals and medicines, but also allows the belt to perform in extreme heats without melting, changing shape or tearing.

Due to the chemical compounds of polyurethane conveyor belts, PU belting has a very strong resistance to water, oils and cleaning materials, making it an easy-to-maintain belt perfect for food preparation and manufacturing belts. 

Polyethylene Belts (PE)

PE Belts are a type of thermoplastic belt that isn’t manufactured for chemical, pharmaceutical or the initial stages of food processing or production. This conveyor belt is made for the purpose of high-impact and heavy duty conveying systems. With a high density proportion due to the chain of polymers and ethylene compounds, the polyethylene conveyor belt is best suited to modular conveyor belt systems.

The PE conveyor belt also makes for great usage in colder climates and due to the way it’s manufactured, the polyethylene belt is perfect for food packaging, bagged material moving and heavy duty, large circumference objects that must be conveyed from A-to-B efficiently and quickly.

Furthermore, the PE conveyor belt is also FDA approved and isn’t toxic after burning, allowing it to be recycled and re-purposed into other PE required plastic objects.

Polyvinyl Chloride Belts (PVC)

PVC belts are one of the most versatile thermoplastic conveyor belts on the market. Traditionally, PVC belting as a corrugated surface to ensure perfect tracking guides when handling slippery or heavier products. This is to help avoid the product falling or slipping off the Polyvinyl chloride conveyor belt.

Due to the belts flexibility properties, PVC belts can be moulded and worked will remaining durable. This makes for a belt suitable specifically for construction industries. However, PVC is also used in food production as the PVC compound can be manufactured to FDA approved standards for food processing.

The PVC conveyor belt also makes for a good flame resistant and chemical resistant plastic conveyor belt with a maximum operating temperature of up to 60°C

Silicone Belts (Si)

Elastomers are generally expected to be heat resistant, oil resistant and flexible at low temperatures. Outstanding performance in any of these properties is likely to come at the expenseof the other ones. Silicone is an exception here: it shows excellent mechanical properties over a very wide temperature range and exhibits satisfactory resistance to oil. Silicones belts also have an outstanding low compression set. 
Compared to other elastomers, silicone  is exceptionally pure and is therefore also suitable for use in the food and medical sectors with operating temperature of -30°C to +120°C
