Torque Limiters - Wedgegard

Howdon Wedgegard shear pin overload torque limiting couplings are designed to protect your drive system in various applications. In the event of a jam or overload, the Wedgepins will shear. They are extremely user friendly and by preventing mechanical overload to minimise further damage or injuries that could have resulted from the overload.

Gear Type Wedgegard Couplings can be supplied bored and keyed to customer requirements.

  • All Couplings manufactured to AGMA standards.
  • Standard Units for release torques up to 286,800 Nm.
  • Torque is adjustable by Wedgepin ratings.
  • Designs to suit special drive requirements are available.
  • Maximum Speed 500 RPM.
  • For speeds greater than 500 RPM units should be balanced.
  • All dimensions in mm unless otherwise shown.
  • All figures are approximate.
