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. To this end, Kop-flex® designed a shear cartridge assembly and shear pin type to be mounted between the rolling mill stand or gearbox and the driving equipment. When it comes to the wind industry, Jaure® torque limiters offer the following benefits:
• more protection
• greater strength
• more endurance
• easy assembly
• less maintenance
• optimum lifecycle cost
The shear pin cartridge coupling is a Series H Mill type coupling. It is designed to 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® Mill 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.
Our new JFTL (JAURE® Integrated overload safety system) meets the requirement of new wind turbines to protect the drive train from peak torques, which can come from short circuits of the generator.
