Link belting is a method of providing power transmission between components of a pneumatic or hydraulic system, usually by connecting and driving wheels. Link belts are composed of a number of links attached together into a long belt. This means it can be adjusted easily by removing one or more links to shorten the belt to the desired size, which makes these products useful in a range of specialised applications.
The main advantage of this type of connection is that it is very easy to install, and does not require the use of any additional tools. It is also useful as an emergency replacement for other types of belts, such as Profile & round belts. It is easy to adjust its length, and it is resistant to many materials including water, oils, and the majority of basic industrial solvents and chemicals.
Link belting can come in a number of different colours, materials and lengths. It is best to purchase a belt longer than needed, as it can be easily shortened down to the correct size.
