Original Press Release:

Gates Eliminator Belt Reduces Costs, Downtime, Inventory for RPP Drives

Gates new Eliminator(TM) belt is engineered to replace any RPP® tooth profile belt of the same width and comparable length, while providing double the service life of RPP belts.

Designed to run on existing RPP sprockets and idlers, and with the same tension as the original RPP belt, Gates Eliminator belt is interchangeable with competitive RPP belts, thereby saving transaction and inventory costs for users.

Compared to competitive RPP (Panther® type) tooth profile belts, Gates Eliminator high-performance polyurethane synchronous belts have been tested to last at least two times longer. Gates guarantees this service life or Gates will refund the cost of the Eliminator belt.

This reliable, extended service life means reduced downtime, because with Gates Eliminator belts, machinery will be shut down half as often for belt replacement service.

To help users specify Eliminator belts, Gates has developed online and printed versions of a crossover matrix chart that lists popular RPP belts by part number along with the Eliminator replacement belt part number.

Gates Eliminator belt, with the trademarked green tooth color, is currently available in 8MM pitch (12mm, 22mm, 35mm, 60mm widths; 26 belt lengths; 104 part numbers) and 14MM pitch (20mm, 42mm, 65mm, 90mm, 120mm widths; 16 belt lengths; 80 part numbers) sizes.
