Self-tensioned engine belt

  • 03-Sep-2008 11:39 EDT

Hutchinson Belt Drive Systems' Stretchybelt is a self-tensioned POLY V belt that provides cost savings by eliminating tensioning systems while remaining maintenance-free. The belt includes several cord modulus options that optimize the system's natural frequencies for improved NVH. The rubber alternator decoupling pulley filters engine vibrations and reduces the effects of alternator inertia, thus extending the life of belts, tensioners, and engine accessories.
