Type DSM 200 to 9,000 Nm
The modular DSM torque limiters are designed for heavy duty and difficult applications where the power torques and speeds may be high. These are three sizes each with up to six spring loading modules giving release torques from 200 to 9,000 Nm.
After overload the limiter gives a free release with zero residual torques. This suits machinery with high inertias and high speeds up to 3,000 r/min. Re-engagement is a simple manual process. Release torques can be pre-set and are manually adjustable.
Typical applications for the DSM torque limiters are extruders, mills, shredders and crushers. In such large plant drives the DSM limiters are often mounted between the motor and the gearbox. They can be used with an offset drive or combined with a flexible shaft coupling for in-line drives. Couplings can be torsionally soft or rigid with bores up to 130mm.
