New -60° to 250° F Rated V-Belts from Browning

Emerson Power Transmission’s Browning has introduced a new range of raw edge V-belts made from EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer), a synthetic rubber formulated for strength and heat resistance. The new belts have a temperature rating of -60° to 250° F and are available in such commonly used v-belt cross sections as AX, BX, CX, 3VX, 5VX and 8VX Gripnotch. The EPDM formulated belt rating is 110 degrees higher than industry-standard polychloroprene belts, making them ideal for rooftop blower units, commercial kitchen or industrial process exhaust systems. The company notes that v-belts may reach 110-115° F while simply running in the sheaves at 72° F ambient temperature. When heat is concentrated under a solid metal guard and the ambient temperature rises, the 140° F limit for common polychloroprene belts is reached quickly. The EPDM belts meet RMA (Rubber Manufacturers Association) standards for tolerances off the shelf and are static dissipating as well as oil and heat resistant. More information at
