Efficient Gadget: Maintenance-Free Synchronous Belt-Drive System

02efficient1Baldor's new synchronous belt-drive system utilizes Dodge® HTR and HTRC Tracker™ belts with a Reinforced Parabolic Profile (RPP) design that allows the belt teeth to sit deeper in the sprocket than standard units.

Combining these belts with Dodge Taper-Lock sprockets yields the most power-dense rubber synchronous drive system in industry. By maximizing performance of both belt and sprocket, the system delivers 5% more energy efficiency than properly maintained V-belt systems. Advanced fiberglass cord gives the neoprene rubber belts superior tension stability and prevents moisture absorption. No belt shrinkage or stretch means no re-tensioning is needed. The belts' construction also helps reduce installation tension. Compared to a QD-style product, the Dodge Taper-Lock sprocket design requires less shaft length, offers more bore sizes per bushing size and delivers more torque. It also minimizes overhung load by positioning the belt's centerline closer to the motor, reducer and bearings. A new anti-corrosion coating offers superior rust prevention.
