When correctly installed and maintained, vee belts and timing belts normally perform trouble-free for 3 to 5 years on most well designed drives.
However, breakdowns occasionally do happen. And they can happen at inconvenient times.
In these cases, some companies hold inventory of critical spares as a way of insuring minimal downtime but the diversity of belt types and sizes can often make this a difficult business proposition.
Rydell Industrial (Belting) Co recognise that some emergency breakdowns are a regular part of industrial production in the manufacturing, mining and agriculture sectors.
As such, they offer a full after hours service, including on-site repairs where necessary. Even though the 24 hour call out service is available, qualified Rydell engineering technicians and industrial belt maintenance experts can also offer advice over the phone where appropriate.
For example, a client who has broken down requiring an emergency spare belt SPB1900, might have a similar size, in a much more commonly used belt type in their store or on another less critical machine such as an older style part number B73.
A B73 is close enough dimensionally to an SPB1900 to be used as a short-term, emergency spare in the interim. Rydell also carry a range of emergency replacement link-style belting such as Nu-T-Link.
