Transmission Equipment | Torque Limiters
The Hercus Torque Limiter is an adjustable friction drive when set prevents over loading, when the preset load is reached the limiter will slip disengaging the drive. The moment the load falls below the preset, the limiter will re-engage and will resume driving.
The selected driving plate* (i.e. Sprocket, Gear etc.) is mounted on a self lubricating bush that is carried on the hub and held between two friction disks. The load desired is applied to the pressure plate by the Disc spring or springs.
* Please Note (Driving Plates are options - not supplied with standard Torque Limiter - Hercus can supply and fit at time of order at addtional cost.)
