CenterClean™
 

CenterClean™ belts are constructed with flexible urethane and sealed Kevlar® tension members.  This construction allows CenterClean belts to be troughed or run on small diameter pulley with minimal belt 
stretch.

Truly Endless Belts

CenterClean is designed for the processing applications requiring synchronous motion. This tooth profile helps to maintain pulley grooves free of debris and easily handles high acceleration and deceleration rates.
