Introduced in 1997, GOODYEAR’s Eagle Pd synchronous belt drive system is quietly celebrating five years of success. Perhaps our readers have them in their concentrators, pellet plants or smelters. Both Eagle Pd belts and sprockets have consistently gained market share since their introduction.
One advantage to installing the Eagle Pd system is that it meets Occupational Safety & Health Administration noise regulations, without the addition of expensive noise dampers. Maintenance and downtime are also reduced because the helical offset tooth design results in smoother tooth engagement, decreasing vibration by a reported 19%. Moreover, the self-tracking sprockets eliminate the need for flanges a savings in both face width and weight.
