Modular torque limiters are easy to install and remove
01 October 2010
UEP modular torque limiters from Bibby Transmissions provide optimum protection against overloads, delivering maximum safeguarding against expensive failures and prolonged downtime on twin screw extruders and mixers. They offer the key benefits of simplified installation, very accurate release torque repeatability (achieved with minimal variation between static and dynamic release), simple fast manual re-engagement and low cost maintenance.
The convenient individual modules are factory preset to provide the required release torque. Installation is highly flexible, enabling the centre section of the torque limiter to be removed without the need to move the extruder motor or gearbox. Similar design versatility ensures that any maintenance of the modules is a straightforward operation, and that recalibration is a simple removal operation achieved without having to replace the complete torque limiter unit.
Whilst each torque limiter assembly is normally factory preset, site adjustments can be carried out, if required, and a setting chart with instructions is provided for this purpose. A security key is required for this operation and adjustment should only be carried out by authorised personnel.
