Spring & Detent Clutches

Spring & detent clutches are designed to transmit up to a pre-determined torque from the motor, over which, the driven side stops while the driver side slips until the overload condition has been removed. The clutch will then automatically re-engage and continue to drive. This prevents damage to the power transmission, machine, and product as well as stalled motors which lead to burn outs and operation downtime. They offer an accurate and repeatable breakaway torque setting and are not affected by heat, humidity, and the presence of oil. They are not readily re-set by careless machine operators. They are manufactured as bi-directional torque limiters for use as direct couplings or with a sprocket, gear or pulley on side drives.

Model DC - Spring & Detent Clutches <-!0117->

Model DC - Spring & Detent Clutches

(137)
The Model DC "Flexible, Direct Coupling" Torque Limiter are spring & detent clutches designed & factory set to transmit up to a pre-determined torque from the motor, over which, the driven side slips or stops while the driver side continues to rotate until the overload condition has been removed. The torque limiter will then automatically re-engage and continue to drive normally. This action prevents damage to the power transmission, machinery, and product as well as eliminating stalled motors which lead to burn outs and operation downtime. They are used to couple two shafts together allowing up to 6 degrees of angular and 1/32" of parallel misalignment. They are installed the same as any jaw type coupling, require no lubrication, and run ...
Model SXT - Spring & Detent Clutches <-!0122->

Model SXT - Spring & Detent Clutches

(108)
The Model SXT " Shaft Extension" Torque Limiters are designed to mount on the standard length shaft of motors and reducers and provide complete bearing support for overhung or sideload of chain or belt drives. They are available with a plain shaft for your coupling, pulley, gear or sprocket or built ready to run with your specified drive as an integral component designed into the clutch at the factory. When a jam or overload occurs, the output shaft will slip or stop. They reset automatically, make a clicking alarm noise, and are adjustable via the threaded housing to increase or decrease the "break-away" torque threshold. They protect expensive machinery and minimize downtime.
Model TB - Spring & Detent Clutches <-!0125->

Model TB - Spring & Detent Clutches

(69)
The Model TB "Through Bore" Torque Limiters are designed to have the motor shaft, gearbox shaft, or a jack shaft project straight through the entire clutch to provide bearing support for the output drive. They are available with a plain shaft for your coupling, pulley, gear or sprocket or built ready to run with your specified drive as an integral component designed into the clutch at the factory. When a jam or overload occurs, the output shaft will slip or stop. They reset automatically, make clicking alarm noise, and are adjustable via the threaded housing to increase or decrease the "break-away" torque threshold. They protect expensive machinery and minimize downtime.

Model SX - Spring & Detent Clutches

(27)
The Model SX "Shaft Extension" Torque Limters mount on a motor or gearbox shaft. They may be used with a coupling or with pulleys, sprockets, or gears for a side drive if external bearing support is provided. Longer shaft extensions are available if needed. When a jam or overload occurs, the output shaft will slip or stop. They reset automatically, make an alarm noise, and are adjustable via the threaded housing to increase or decrease the "break-away" torque threshold. They protect expensive machinery and minimize downtime.
