TORONTO, Ontario Goodyear Canada's Engineered Products Division has introduced a series of hose products and a tension gauge for v-belts specifically for the Canadian mining and other heavy industries.
The first, Ultrabraid hoses, are constructed in five styles for heavy duty use. The styles are Ultrabraid Air, Ultrabraid HD Plus, Ultrabraid Steel Air, Ultrabraid Supreme, and Ultrabraid Bull Hose. All resist oil and abrasion, giving them superior usable lifespans. They have a wrapped impression cover for easy grip and handling. Several different bright colours are available to improve visibility and identification in the workplace.
Wherever v-belt life and efficiency need improvement try Goodyear's new TensionRite II gauge. It determines precise belt tension measurements and takes the guesswork out of v-belt installations and applications. It is easy to use and replaces the so-called "thumb test" or "what feels right". TensionRite is available to use with v-belts or single belt applications.
