Timken is a well-known manufacturer of high-quality drive belts for a wide range of applications. In addition to their standard banded belts, Timken also produces several specialty drive belts designed to meet the unique requirements of specific industries or applications.

One of these specialty belts is the Dry Can drive belt, which is used in the paper and packaging industry to drive the drying cylinders in paper machines. These belts are made of a special high-temperature rubber compound that can withstand the extreme temperatures and humidity levels present in paper machines. The Dry Can belt features a flat surface that provides a consistent contact area with the pulleys, resulting in a more efficient power transfer and longer belt life.

Another specialty belt produced by Timken is the Round Drive belt, which is used in a variety of applications, including agricultural machinery, conveyors, and woodworking equipment. These belts are made of high-strength materials and feature a circular cross-section that allows for smooth operation and improved power transmission efficiency.

Thoro-Twist belts are another specialty belt produced by Timken, designed for use in industrial power transmission and material handling applications. These belts are made of a unique, twist-resistant material that provides improved resistance to shock loads and minimizes belt stretch over time. Thoro-Twist belts are ideal for applications that require high power transmission efficiency and long belt life.

Overall, Timken's specialty drive belts are designed to meet the unique needs of specific industries and applications, and are engineered for optimal performance and longevity. The Dry Can drive belt, Round Drive belt, and Thoro-Twist belt are just a few examples of the many specialty belts produced by Timken, each designed to provide the most efficient and reliable power transmission solution for their intended application.
