Hydra Seals – Celebrates 20 Years at the MGM!

Hi all…

We’ve had a hectic week over the Halloween

weekend. We took a little trip to Las Vegas to celebrate the business’ 20 years trading in Ireland. Over four days we each person traveled about 30 hours to and from the destination,  slept an average of 10 hours, and if it were still possible to re- mortgage in these days, it may well have been done. Thankfully everyone had a great time, and everyone arrived home safe and sound, in several pieces, in some cases.

We’ve posted a few photo’s below. Check them out.

Hydra Seals are also stocking Dunlop Micro V Belts

Hydra Seals Hose and Bearings Limited, Irish distributor for Dunlop Bearings, Transmission and Linkage products, are stocking Micro V Belts.

What are Micro V-Belts & Pulleys?

DUNLOP Poly V-belts, also known as ‘ribbed’ belts or ‘micro V belts are endless single belts that have V-shaped ribs that interconnect with the grooves on a corresponding belt pulley.

This drive belt design offers low noise output at very high speeds, giving smooth running and large transmission ratios, combining the high flexibility and light weight of flat belts, with the grip and performance of V-belts.

Creating a high power rating drive with a rib profile making them suitable for a wide range of industrial, agricultural, domestic and automotive applications.

These belts offer a smooth, vibration free performance. These V belts are resistant to heat and abrasion, which provides for a long life in the service field.

Taper or Pilot bore versions of these Poly-V belt pulleys are available. The taper bore are designed for use with pre-machined taper bushes that are finished with the required bore and keyway size.

All Poly V-belts conform to ISO 9982, DIN7867 and ASAS S 211.5. They meet ISO1813 for static conductivity and have an operating temperature range of -30°C to +60°C

V Belts & Pulleys
DUNLOP V-belts and wedge belts are designed to link two or more rotating shafts. They offer high efficiency, high misalignment tolerance, economical and virtually maintenance free, therefore, can be used to drive and control moving component parts in automotive, industrial and agricutural applications.

Wrapped V-belts and high capacity wedge belts remain the most widely used belt/pulley system in service today. Raw edge cogged V-belts and wedge belts, enable the use of smaller pulley diameters and so save costs on drive design.

Banded V-belts consist of several single belts that are joined into one unit with a band at the top. This design absorbs the natural vibration generated by individual belt sets, they are also used for their high strength and lateral rigidity.

Kevlar corded V-belts are stronger than conventional drive belts, due to the high strength of the Kevlar cords and the heat resistant cotton wrap that covers the outer edges of the belts. Kevlar corded V-belts are suitable for all clutching agricutural applications.

V-belts and wedge belts ranges include: V-belts wrapped – Z to D sections, V-belts raw edged cogged – AX to BX, wedge belts wrapped – SPZ to SPC, wedge belts raw edged – SPZX to SPCX, V-belts automotive raw edged cogged – AVX10 to AVX13, V-belts hexagonal wrapped – AA to CC, V-belts kevlar cord cotten wrapped – 3L to 5L, V-belts banded wrapped – A to C, 3V to 8V and SPZ to SPC

V-belt pulleys are available with either a pilot or taper bore, the latter designed for use with pre-machined taper bushes that are finished with the required bore and keyway size.
