Things To Consider

Cross-Reference Alternatives

Gates Corporation's MPNs cross individual references to the equivalent Dixon model numbers. So, if you are looking for competitor items that are either out of stock or obsolete, chances are Raptor Supplies has the equivalent Gates drive belts & pulleys available. Customers can also cross-reference most products using the last 5 digits of the model numbers.


Gates V-belts are available in thicknesses ranging from 8 mm to 18 mm. These belts, pulleys & bushings require careful packaging as some products might get damaged while shipping. Hence, these power transmission products are delivered by courier shipment and not air freight for minimum downtime.

About Gates

Gates' extensive catalogue includes V-belts, tube fittings & adapters, power transmission kits, Gates hoses & couplings, water pumps and cooling fan modules. Gates SPB 4 rib metric V-belts are used to transfer force from the engine to hydraulic pumps, power steering systems and air conditioning compressors. They are heat & corrosion-resistant and require no lubrication / re-tensioning. These V-belts have elastomeric compounds with flex-bonded tensile cords for decreased distortion and stretching. These Gates belts feature wrapped construction for increased flexibility, improved grip and enhanced durability. They can withstand temperatures ranging from -30 to 140 degrees F. The brand's 1008 Series bushings come with a split in the barrel of the bushing for ease of installation and removal of the bushing. These bushings feature a taper lock style for secure locking, increased torque transmission and reduced vibration. They have a circle diameter of 1.328 inches and comply with SAE grade 5, ensuring moderate strength and reliability.

What are the factors to consider while choosing the right Gates product?

  • Ensure that the product meets the specific requirements of your application, including compatibility with the intended fluid, temperature range, pressure rating and other relevant factors.
  • Look for products known for their performance and reliability, backed by reputable testing and certifications. Consider factors like durability, longevity and resistance to wear, corrosion and other environmental factors.
  • Consider whether the product meets industry standards and certifications to ensure quality and compliance. Look for products that undergo rigorous testing and adhere to recognised standards.
  • Ensure that the product is compatible with your existing equipment or systems. Check for proper sizing, dimensions and connection compatibility to ensure a seamless fit.
  • Evaluate the availability of technical support, documentation and resources provided by Gates, including product specifications, installation guides, troubleshooting information and access to knowledgeable support staff.
  • Review the warranty coverage and after-sales support provided by Gates. Consider the availability of replacement parts, repair services and customer assistance in case of any issues or concerns.
  • Research the reputation and customer reviews of Gates products. This can provide insights into the experiences of other users and help assess the overall satisfaction with the brand and its products.

What can be done to address the issue of immediate and large amounts of discharged water from the backflow preventer when connecting the air supply line?

  • Point the tool in a safe direction and pull the trigger while observing the pulse.
  • Gradually reduce the air regulator pressure until the pulse weakens.
  • Increase the regulator pressure only until the pulse returns to a strong level, but not higher.
  • When releasing the trigger, the BP discharge will be significantly reduced and considered normal.

What is the difference between Gates shrink clamps and other brands' shrink clamps?

Gates shrink clamps differ from other brands' shrink clamps through their innovative design and engineering. With superior materials and advanced manufacturing techniques, Gates shrink clamps provide enhanced sealing, durability and reliability, making them a trusted choice for various applications where secure and long-lasting connections are required.

What are the differences between Gates V-belts and round belts?

  • V-belts have a trapezoidal cross-section with a V-shaped groove, while round belts have a circular cross-section.
  • V-belts are designed for higher power transmission capabilities, suitable for heavy-duty applications, while round belts are used for lighter loads and lower power requirements.
  • V-belts require tensioning mechanisms to maintain proper belt tension and prevent slipping, while round belts are more flexible and do not require tensioning.
  • V-belts offer increased grip and better power transfer due to the V-shaped groove, while round belts rely on friction for power transmission.
  • V-belts require proper alignment between pulleys for optimal performance, while round belts offer more flexibility in alignment.
  • V-belts are available in specific lengths and sizes, while round belts are sold in continuous rolls and can be cut to the desired length.
  • V-belts are commonly used in industrial machinery and heavy-duty equipment, while round belts are found in light-duty machinery and conveyors.
  • V-belts may require periodic tension adjustments and eventual replacement, while round belts have a longer service life and require less maintenance.
  • V-belts can handle higher rotational speeds, while round belts are used in lower-speed applications.
