HTD® Sprocket
 
HTD® Sprocket | Gates Corporation

WARNING: When designing belt drives for new applications with PowerGrip® GT®2 Power Ratings, do not use HTD® Sprocket Systems. HTD Sprockets/Bushings may not handle the increased torque loads and damage to the sprocket and/or bushing may occur. Only use PowerGrip GT2 Sprockets for new designs.

REPLACEMENT NOTE: When replacing an existing HTD belt running in an HTD Sprocket. Gates recommends PowerGrip HTD belts for 5 mm pitch sprockets and PowerGrip GT2 belts for 8 mm and 14mm pitch sprockets.

Explanation of Recommendations

Recommended-Original Design: This combination is designed to be used together.
Note: For new drive designs, belts should only be used with the intended sprockets (see warnings). Published belt ratings apply only to belts used with the sprockets they were intended for.
Replacement Only: This combination is recommended only for replacement. Widths should be adjusted as indicated. Replacement combinations should not be used in new designs (see warnings).
Not Recommended: This combination is not recommended due to potentially reduced service life of either the belt, the sprockets, or both. Also, a combination may not be recommended if another product line from the same manufacturer is more appropriate.
No Compatibility: This combination is not compatible, either because the belt does not wrap the sprockets well or because the belt tooth is too large to fit the sprocket grooves.



Please Note:

1. Sprocket groove drawings are based upon 38-40 grooves. Ideal form with no variation from manufacturing tolerance was assumed.
2. Belt tooth drawings represent ideal form with no manufacturing variation.
