The Dodge TORQUE-ARM II surpasses all other reducers on the market because of its industry proven design and patented features. This powerful line of shaft mounted speed reducers – in 12 case sizes through 400 horsepower (HP) – offers unparalleled torque ratings and is quickly becoming the new industry standard. Improved features include: an all-new backstop concept, a patented sealing system, a steel motor mount system, a state-of-the-art, totally modular design with an expanded ratio range to 40:1 and a patented twin tapered bushing system.

The increased ratings on the TORQUE-ARM II line are comparable to the next larger sized TXT reducer and are the result of the extended gear centers, wider gear faces and optimized tooth geometry. The new backstop design features centrifugal lift-off sprags for extended life and can be used with lubricants containing EP additives. In addition, the TORQUE-ARM II line has a patented, premium sealing system that uses an HNBR oil seal protected by a metal excluder seal with rubbing lip. This harsh duty sealing system makes this reducer series a perfect fit for today's harsh duty industries such as aggregates, mining, cement, asphalt, mixing & milling and ethanol.

The new steel motor mount adjusts to multiple center distances and mounts in shaft mount and screw conveyor positions. Its patented twin tapered bushing system - in standard length, short shaft, and metric versions – offers all the features of Dodge's standard twin tapered TORQUE-ARM® bushing design which are unique to Dodge. The patented insertable tapered wedge enables the optional extended tapered bushing kit to be applied for shorter shaft lengths; allowing the replacement of straight bore or single bushed reducers.

Both Torque-Arm II and Motorized Torque-Arm II are ATEX certified.

Motorized Torque-Arm has been found to comply with the Essential Health and Safety Requirements that relate to the design of Category 2 and M2 equipment, which is intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres. These Essential Health and Safety Requirements are given in Annex II to European Union Directive 94/9/EC of 23 March 1994.
