Gates presents new Heavy Duty catalogue including Extra Service Micro-V® XF belts and DriveAlign® tensioners

Gates has released its new Heavy Duty catalogue with applications for trucks, buses and tractors. New features to this catalogue are the presence of Extra Service DriveAlign® tensioners, Gates Extra Service 90° curved silicone hoses and also a complete range of Extra Service Micro-V® XF multi-ribbed belts. 
From today, customers will find, for the first time, Gates’ range of Extra Service DriveAlign® tensioners in the new Heavy Duty catalogue. Listings of these tensioners can be found in the application chapter and OE chapters.  A separate illustration chapter shows images of all Extra Service DriveAlign® tensioners in alphanumerical order. 
Furthermore, the new Heavy Duty catalogue contains Gates complete new range of Extra Service Micro-V® XF multi-ribbed belts. These belts are very recognizable by their green colour and are engineered to live up to the most demanding requirements of today’s most severe applications. With the launch of this new belt range, Gates has moved from a non-significant numbering system to the PK standard, size-based system, facilitating the identification of the belt. 
The catalogue has also been extended to contain Gates’ Extra Service 90° curved silicone hoses offering superior performance on heavy duty applications. This high-temperature resistant curved hose functions perfectly as radiator, heater or other coolant transfer hose in poorly ventilated conditions.
In accordance with previous practice this catalogue is multilingual and contains information in English, French, German, Dutch, Italian and Spanish.  All information is arranged per system: belt drive systems, cooling systems, fuel systems and now also air systems, for all of which size listings are included. For the belt drive systems there is also a large alphabetical application listing by vehicle make for trucks, buses and tractors.
In addition this user-friendly Heavy Duty catalogue contains a section on new products, an overview of cancelled and replaced products, and an explanation and translation of all abbreviations and symbols used in the catalogue.
