Water on the rubber belt is the most important factor to ensuring the longevity of a Rubber Belt. Adequate water coverage is essential to both cool and lubricate your belt. To prevent damage to the belt ensure when running your shrinkage machine:

  1. That water is the first thing turned on and the last thing turned off.
  2. That the internal and external water sprays are consistent across the RB width and that none of the openings are clogged with lint
  3. That the Felt Dr. Blade is uniformly against the RB across the full width
  4. That all the water sprays are facing in the proper direction as illustrated below.
