FEATURES AND BENEFITS

Complete disengagement on overload
No torque transmission after overload release
All metal, totally enclosed
Long life in harsh environments; completely enclosed torque transmitting components
Easy to reset
Reduces downtime, lost production, saves time and money; the safety elements can be reset in minutes; eliminate searching for misplaced shear pins; can be reset by the operator
Tamperproof torque adjustment
Virtually eliminates increasing the capacity of the drive by unauthorized personnel without the use of special tools, shims, springs, spacers, etc.
Quick and complete disengagement
Eliminates problems associated with slow reaction electrical overload sensing devices, shear pins (which give a wide torque range) and rapidly overheating slip clutches
Quick and complete disengagement
Eliminates problems associated with slow reaction electrical overload sensing devices, shear pins (which give a wide torque range) and rapidly overheating slip clutches
Positive drive/no slip
Eliminates damaging heat build–up and maintains equipment timing while engaged
Torque setting accuracy maintained indefinitely
Ease of maintenance is assured by eliminating continuous adjustments for wear and fatigue

Through hardened, chromium tool steel, torque transmitting components
Virtually eliminates wear on these critical components
Precision Belleville springs
Ensure accurate and repeatable release torque setting
Spring loaded, ball detent torque transmission
Eliminates problems with sheared pins fatigue Eliminates the problems associated with “substitute” shear pin materials
Moduar element design/four basic sizes of elements
Enables a design suited to your torque requirements, at a competitive price The accuracy and repeatability can allow for downsized motors, reducers, etc. because there is no need for large service factors; the safety elements can be designed in for protection, and the power transmission equipment sized to do the job properly and efficiently.

The Brunel Safety Element Torque Limiters have been specifically designed to offer overload protection on applications where very high torques are transmitted, and so extend the range covered by the standard Brunel units.

Gone are the problems associated with slow reaction electrical overloads, shear pins which give a wide torque variation, and rapidly overheating slip clutches.

HOW TO SELECT AND ORDER
