Denver, Colo. – The Power Transmission unit of Gates Corporation announces a new case studies library as a resource for facility and plant managers who want to reduce costs or increase efficiency via their power transmission systems.
The success stories, called Gates Powered® Conversions, demonstrate how Gates belt drive systems have helped improve system reliability, reduce downtime, minimize maintenance and find energy savings in a broad range of industries.
The library features more than 80 case studies organized by industry, such as chemical processing, food and beverage, oilfield, aggregate and mining and paper processing or by facilities, such as hospitals; by product, including Gates’ Poly Chain® GT® Carbon®, PowerGrip® GT®2 and Predator® belt drive systems; and by application.
In one case study, Predator belts on blowers are conservatively estimated to save a raw material processing plant $500,000 annually in maintenance and downtime costs. In another, Poly Chain GT Carbon belt drive systems allowed a paperboard plant to shift the responsibilities of its maintenance staff and capitalize on time saved, as the need for thousands of hours of lubricating roller chain drives was eliminated.
