Aroflex Torque Limiters Information

AROFLEX FRICTION DISC TORQUE LIMITERS

Aroflex Friction Disc Torque Limiters are suitable for use in Sprockets, Platewheels (Simplex, Duplex, Triplex), Gears, Pulleys or Flexible Couplings. The spring loaded design enables preset torque limits by adjusting the locknut which alters the spring force to suit the specified min / max torque ratings. For use in Conveyors, Mechanical Handling equipment and Agricultural Machinery. This low cost product will prevent unnecessary drive damage and eliminate machinery downtime. Boring, Keywaying, Splining and Broaching facilities are available, please check out our prices in the In-House Engineering section of this website.

Re: Which Coupling Should I Use ?

There are many different types of couplings and depending on the application there are different types of couplings to suit many different needs. The most popular coupling in the World is the Jaw or Spider coupling, the reason for this is that it is low cost, simple in design and has great dampening characteristics due to the rubber insert / element which absorbs shock and provides good angular and parallel misalignment. Being a Jaw coupling it is also Fail Safe i.e. it will still drive should the insert fail due to the interlinking Jaws of each hub.

When selecting a coupling careful consideration should be given to chemical resistance, misalignment, restricted space (compactness) etc. There are many types of couplings i.e. Jaw / Spider, Tyre, Pin and Bush, Grid, Gear, Torsionally Soft, Metallic Disc, Fluid Drive etc. Horses for courses comes to mind and as simple as it may sound getting it right can save downtime / lost production and prolong the life of the driven machinery.
