Regal Introduces Browning TorqTitan Notched Belt

December 1, 2020

Regal Beloit Corporation recently announced the introduction of its new Browning TorqTitan notched belt.

The TorqTitan notched belt utilizes innovative elastomers, optimized cord arrangements and notch profiles to make it the most power-dense and energy-efficient V-belt that Regal has ever produced.

The high-horsepower belt outperforms similarly sized belts in a wide range of applications, while being 30% stronger. No re-tensioning is needed, and it requires neither maintenance nor downtime.

“The TorqTitan notched belt is the industry’s first bandless zero-maintenance V-belt,” said Jesse Dupuis, director of marketing — HVAC industry group at Regal. “The belt’s innovative minimal-stretch cord technology and a proprietary cord treatment process keep it from suffering from severe tension decay in the first hours after installation. So, no run-in period or any re-tensioning is required. This is especially convenient in difficult-to-reach belt drives. No re-tensioning means no machine or production downtime and helps reduce downtime costs for maintenance and plant engineers.”

The specially engineered shape in the notch design reduces bending stresses for improved flexibility, increased heat dissipation and better performance on small pulley diameters. This improved flexibility helps increase belt life and lowers energy consumption while also improving drive performance.

The TorqTitan belt, with newly formulated EPDM rubber material, resists hardening to avoid cracking in temperatures up to 130 C, making it the ideal solution for hot-air HVAC applications or other high-temperature environments. Similarly, the belt maintains exceptional performance in extreme cold conditions as low as -50 C.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
