Get the Right Belt for the Right Job

Hose & Rubber News

Belts are important. They hold up your pants. They identify the martial arts masters.  They’re Batman’s only super power. Belts are important to Hose and Rubber Supply as well, which is why we’re so passionate about providing the best in belt power-transmission systems. 


But, it’s important to have the right belt for the right job. 


For instance, some drive systems work best with classic belts, but you may need to make speed changes or stroke-per-minute changes on an artificial lift or other system. Luckily, no matter your belt equipment needs, Hose and Rubber Supply can fill them. We can also educate you on what you do and don’t need. 


Classic v-belts, like the ones you use in your car and other motorized mechanisms, as well as sheaves, are the heart of the belt world. Yes, we stock them. But there’s a world of difference in the quality of available belts. Like with most things, you get what you pay for. 


The only belt that can provide precision timing and power is the synchronous belt (and yes, we provide those too). 


Converting select drives to synchronous belts can increase efficiency through precise RPMs, higher torque, better energy transmission, and specific timing between shafts. Our power-transmission products are finely engineered by the world’s leading manufacturers. We provide on-site assessments and any needed design of your systems and supporting inventory. 


We carry the most sophisticated tools to make drive installation and maintenance a breeze. Whether roof-top or ground-based HVAC units, aggregate processors, vac-transfer trucks, PTO drives or any other type of equipment, Hose and Rubber Supply has the inventory, the expertise, and the passion to make sure you get what you need, when you need it. We even offer maintenance training!


That means you can cut your maintenance time and costs, and you can greatly lower your downtime. Our product knowledge, experience, drive-maintenance tools, and superior training help you spend less time installing and maintaining drives, more time doing what you actually need to be doing. We offer increased equipment performance, better production, lower maintenance costs, reduced downtime, and bigger bottom lines. Just think – reduced maintenance, less frequent tensioning, and minimal down-the-road repairs. That’s what you’ll get with Hose and Rubber Supply.


No matter the belt, if power transmission drives them, you can decrease your long-term costs and build a win-win partnership with the proven pros at Hose and Rubber Supply.
