Arguably, it was Combine, and Agricultural belts in general, which established PIX as a household name in the early years. They are generally regarded as experts in this field, building belts which work in the most arduous environments, having to withstand extreme conditions.
In normal operation, these drives are subject to the ingress of dust, stones, and the remains of the crop – very often working at the hottest period of the year.
PIX Agricultural belts come in a variety of types – Vari-Speed, Banded High Power, Poly-V, and Flat. All PIX Agricultural belts have the following qualities:
For decades now, Distag has been the industry ‘stop-off’ to pick up Combine belts, and other Agri belts, from stock.
In addition to this, PIX have developed more specialist agricultural belts, which are all available to special order from Distag.
Working closely with leading global manufacturers, the PIX name has become synonymous with innovation in this sector. From carrot harvesters to rice planters, the PIX engineering team have produced solutions for some of the most exacting applications on the planet.
HIGH-POWER, HIGH-STRENGTH, INVERSELY FLEXIBLE, WRAPPED BELTS
Enforcer is a problem solver! Originally designed by PIX to handle the extreme demands of rice harvesters and planters, it is now recognised as a perfect solution for many Lawn and Garden and Agricultural applications.This belt features an Aramid cord, a specially treated, hard-wearing outer cover, and a unique wrap construction which allows acute reverse bending, and the ability to operate on small pulleys. Often used now to operate compact tractor mower attachments.
High-power, low belt stretch, resistance to shock load, high temperature (-25° to +100°C), and abrasion resistant – a great set of credentials!
VARIABLE-SPEED, MOULDED RAW EDGE COGGED BELTS
The cogged version of the ‘rice harvester’ belt, Dominator, also has Aramid cords to resist shock-loading.
It is produced using a specially designed rubber compound, and has a stretchable top fabric. The cogged construction enables the use of smaller pulleys, and increases overall flexibility.
All-in-all, Dominator is an extreme duty performer – very heavy duty, high tensile strength and power transmission handling capacity. Available in BX and CX sections
ROOT HARVESTER LIFTING BELTS
Extractor-XS was designed to do very much as the name suggests – extracting root crops in arable farming.
Another in the range of profile top belts produced by PIX, it features triangular serrations across the belt. Used in pairs, the Belts actually grip the haulms of the crop and lift them up into the harvester. Used mainly for carrot and beet harvesters. Available in D and 37mm sections.
