Until Dunlop Betahete was installed this customer was experiencing very short average belt life of only 6 to 12 months because of the poor heat resistance properties provided by’ low price’ local and imported belts being used. Allowing for average inflation of 4% per annum over a 14-year period, based on current prices, the customer is estimated to have saved in excess of 4 million euros in replacement belt and belt fitting costs.
