LONG-LIFE BELTS MOVE HEAVY LOADS
When a competitor’s belts failed after only nine months
service in a large postal distribution center, Dura-Belt's
Long-Life HT belts replaced them. Nine years
later, HT belts are still going strong -- moving your mail on
conveyors that run 24 hours/day, 7 days/week.
Even though some postal tubs have soft bottoms and carry
over-weight loads, HT belts take the punishment and keep
the mail moving. Over 12 million are in service on pow-ered-roller conveyor systems. For longer-life and heavier
loads, try time-tested HT (high tension) O-ring belts -- the
only ones colored "Post Office Blue".
