One of the air blowers originally driven by a traditional V-belt has been equipped with a Gates Poly Chain® GT2 drive belt to conduct a comparative test.
With the specific power consumption by blowers, the specific power savings due to the new belt were calculated. It was found that the power consumption was reduced by 0.00201 kW/m³ due to the belt replacement in one blower only.

The following figure clearly shows that when blower C (equipped with Poly Chain® GT2) is running alone, the power consumption is mimimum.
