Lateral Mount Safety Couplings for Extruders
Now available is a specially designed version of the tried and true industrial couplings for the protection of extruders. The extremely robust safety couplings have a compact design for high torque applications. In the event of a torque overload, the drive and driven elements are separated within a few milliseconds, safeguarding the extruder from damage. This will help to reduce costly downtime and expensive repairs. In addition to simple and quick re-engagement, as well as various torque adjustment ranges, this model offers other valuable advantages. The vibration damping and shock absorbing torque limiters are designed with an integrated elastomer jaw coupling, allowing for compensation of axial, angular, and lateral shaft misalignment. Since the torque limiters are offered with mounting configurations such as fully split hubs or flanged keyway mount hubs, the series offers lateral mounting, significantly simplifying installation and eliminating the need to move the motor during installation or maintenance.
