Interchanging Competitive Belts

Interchanging competitive belts can can be a simplified process. This site provides various interchange tools grouped by market and product type.

If a belt replacement is not listed in the interchange, Gates Application Engineers may be able to assist using measured belt dimensions. The number of teeth (synchronous belts only), length, width, and thickness can help the engineers identify the closest standard replacement.

It should be noted that replacing belts based solely on measurements is not ideal. In these cases, Gates cannot guarantee that the materials would be the same or that the belt will provide the same performance level as the original belt.
