Dayco aWEARness Gauge
Designed to measure a belt’s rib depth, rib profile and cracks.
The aWEARness gauge helps technicians pinpoint wear on EPDM belts by measuring specific characteristics – like depth, profile and number of cracks. By placing the notched area lengthwise over the ribbed section of the belt, this pocket size device quickly and easily identifies the potential of serpentine belt failure. If there are more than four cracks per inch in the belt, technicians should replace the belt.
