Kop-Flex? Torque Overload Couplings
In today?s drive systems, equipment is designed closer to the actual operating conditions to minimize capital cost. It is becoming increasingly important to provide an overload device to protect the equipment from unexpected shock loads.
?
The Shear Pin Cartridge coupling is a Series H type coupling designed to physically disconnect the driving and driven equipment during torque overload. The purpose of the design is to prevent damage to the equipment- motor, gearbox, pump, etc. from torque overload. FAST?S? Shear pin couplings are used to limit the peak torque to a predetermined safe value. This value is greater than the normal starting torque of the system.

Feartures & Benefits
  • ??? Increased coupling reliability
  • ??? Minimized downtime by enabling quick start-up after shear pin breakage
  • ??? Minimized premature shear pin breakage
  • ??? Decreased coupling rebuilding cost after shear pin breakage
