Mechanical torque limiters

TO help overcome torque overloads caused by material jams, operator error, or a whole range of unforeseen reasons, Nexen has developed the mechanical torque limiter (MTL) which isolates the driving from the driven elements within a matter of milliseconds, once the torque reaches a preset overload value.

After the problem is cleared, the torque limiter is reset and production continues.

According to the company, the torque limiter is easily adjustable in place, and features graduated torque setting; single, and multi-position options; and auto/manual reset, and load holding options
