Breakaway coupling targets wind applications

Breakaway coupling targets wind applications

Made to protect gearboxes and pumps from failure due to torque overload, the new ST1 torque limiter offers versatility in a compact design. The modularity allows for a complete breakaway at widely adjustable torque levels — anywhere from 740 to 118,000 ft-lb, across four body sizes.

Individual torque limiting elements are available separately for retrofit and for integration into custom-designed coupling systems. Torque adjustment and clutch reengagement can be achieved by simply using screws, rather than hammers.
