SOURCE: altenator belt breaking
Is this a single serpentine belt system or a V belt with 2 or more belts running the accessories? There is an alignment issue, another bad accessorie or bad bearing (quite possibley the new alt) or as mentioned a bad idler ( if a serpentine belt setup)

One or more of the pulleys is out of line or the idler or tensioner is defective and coming apart, the best thing to do is have them all pulleys checked for misalignment to stop this, many times the crankshaft pulley separates from the rubber ring that dampens crankshaft vibrations and the pulley walks outward. It takes a trained eye to see these pulley alignment issues, suggest you have a trusted shop look at this for you. Even a slight misalignment will eat up or throw off the belt.
