Transversely stiff, raw-edge, heavy-duty V-belts for powerful, sustained power transmission with enhanced running smoothness; compliant with DIN 7753.

From fans and compressors to mechanical engineering in general, by expanding our product range, we have incorporated the advantages of the belt drive into plant engineering in its entirety. This is because we now manufacture the Conti V FO Pioneer in an expanded range-pitch length of up to five meters. Thanks to this, high power transmission with maintenance-free heavy-duty V-belts can now be achieved in almost all industrial applications. 

Quality and diversity 

The CONTI®V FO PIONEER opens up new possibilities for machine and plant engineering. “Because our heavy-duty V-belt is now also available in a length of five meters, it can be installed in larger systems with bigger center distances,” declared Rodrigo Maia, in charge of industrial belt business for EMEA/APAC at Continental. “With the new length, we offer the diversity that the market demands – naturally, with the usual top-class quality.” The product range expansion was achieved thanks to the new production system at the Hanover site. 

Lightweight, durable and stable

In every length, the heavy-duty V-belt is characterized by powerful, permanent power transmission with very quiet running as per DIN 7753. It is maintenance-free and temperature-resistant from -40°C to +130°C. Its stability is ensured by an EPDM design with a durable, abrasion-resistant compound, a tensile member made of polyester and a cover fabric made of cotton. It is also resistant to dust and tropical climates, conductive as per ISO 1813 as well as partially oil resistant. In the entire product range, the CONTI®V FO PIONEER replaces the CONTI®V FO ADVANCE.
