Synchronous drive system
The Dodge HT500 synchronous drive system delivers high torque and low maintenance with less overhung load than V-belts drives.
The Dodge HT500 belts offer a longer life in wet/oily environments than rubber made products. The HT500 belt is made with polyurethane for harsh environment resistance and carbon fiber cords, providing higher torque carrying capacity than commonly known aramid fiber tensile cords made belts. A full line of stock, compact, power-dense TAPER-LOCK sprockets, fin fan QD sprockets, and Minimum Plain Bore (MPB) sprockets will also be available from stock. The made-to-order capability includes split-tapered options as well as a variety of tooth count, materials and plating to satisfy the requirements of any application. The sprockets are made with the modified curvilinear tooth profile for 8mm and 14mm pitches.
