PIX is an established brand in Agricultural Belts. Agricultural Belts work in the most arduous environment and have to withstand adverse conditions while operating.

They are subjected to the most strenuous operations, the dust, soil, stone granules, stray remains of the harvested crop, etc are likely to create interference during the operation. The drive is often subject to extreme weather conditions such as hot sunny days, extreme winters and rainy season.

Nevertheless, the Agricultural Belt drive also uses a small size idler, which in turn puts a lot of pressure on the Belt resulting into unavoidable increase in temperature and may cause the Belt to deform & reduction in its life. All these factors call for a very special construction for the Agricultural Belts which are used in the harvester combines and tractors.

PIX, which owns the reputation of manufacturing high-quality application-specific Belts, has developed Belts meant specially for the agricultural industry, commonly called as Harvester Belts. PIX Harvester belts are the result of its over four decades of research and experience in the field of agricultural mechanical power transmission industry, where the Belts are subject to stringent conditions.

The Belts are made resistant to all the extremities encountered in the Harvester Combines and related agricultural applications.

Considering the huge and varied demand for the equipment used in agriculture. PIX has developed a huge range of belts covering the entire spectrum of Agricultural application from Harvester Combines to the tractors and the equipment used as an attachment to the combines or tractors.

PIX-Agricultural Belts are designed to follow the international standard norms used by the original equipment manufacturers and are widely used in the replacement market and offer a trouble-free and zero-maintenance life.

PIX-Agricultural Belts are available in Wrap (Conventional), Raw Edge Cogged, Variable Speed, Poly-V, Banded type and in Flat construction.

PIX Agricultural Belts are made up of:

  1. Tough tensile members with a specially formulated rubber compound to withstand the rough and tough conditions encountered in Harvester Combines.
  2. They are resistant to shock loads, vibrations and high abrasion with very low elongation.
  3. They are antistatic and oil resistant.

FAQ - Agricultural Belts

What are Agricultural Belts?

Agricultural Belts are specialized Belts used in farming equipment and machinery to transfer power and drive various agricultural implements.

What are the common types of Agricultural Belts?

Common types include V Belts, Timing Belts, banded Belts, and specialty Belts designed for specific agricultural machinery like tractors, combines, harvesters, or tillers.

What functions do Agricultural Belts perform?

They transmit power from the engine or motor to different components in agricultural machinery, enabling operations such as harvesting, plowing, seeding, and other farm tasks.

What materials are Agricultural Belts made from?

They are typically made from durable materials like rubber compounds reinforced with synthetic materials such as polyester, aramid fibers, or metal cords for strength and resistance to wear.

How often should Agricultural Belts be replaced?

Replacement intervals vary depending on usage, load, and environmental conditions. Regular inspection and adherence to maintenance schedules are essential for optimal performance.

What are signs that Agricultural Belts need replacement?

Signs include visible wear, cracking, fraying, loss of tension, increased noise during operation, reduced efficiency, or reaching the recommended service life specified by the manufacturer.

Can I replace Agricultural Belts myself?

Replacing Agricultural Belts might require specific tools and expertise, especially in larger farming equipment. Professional assistance or trained technicians may be advisable.

How can I maintain Agricultural Belts for optimal performance?

Regular inspection for wear, proper tension adjustment, alignment checks, and following manufacturer-recommended maintenance schedules are crucial for maximizing belt lifespan and efficiency.

Can extreme conditions affect Agricultural Belt performance?

Yes, extreme temperatures, moisture, dust, and debris in agricultural settings can impact belt performance, necessitating regular inspection and maintenance.

What benefits do high-quality Agricultural Belts offer?

High-quality Belts offer durability, resistance to wear, reliability in heavy-duty operations, and efficiency, ultimately contributing to smoother and more productive farming operations.
