Temperature Effect on Belt Storage

Tuesday, January 13, 2015

To ensure belts maintain full performance capability, six years is the maximum recommended storage time.

To achieve full storage life, belts should be stored at temperatures below 85°F.  For every 15°F increase above 85°F, the recommended storage time is reduced by half.  It is not recommended to store belts at temperatures above 115°F.

For additional storage recommendations, refer to the Belt Drive Preventive Maintenance & Safety Manual: BeltPMManual.pdf
