Torq-Tender™ overload safety couplings are available in models designed for washdown applications. They clean easily, will not corrode and operate in a wide temperature range. Providing torque limiting and coupling functions in a single, compact unit, these couplings serve both as a safety device and as a coupling in a power transmittion system. They protect motor and drive systems from jam-ups and excessive overloading. These washdown models have a seal and modified housing that resists water intrusion and outside contamination. They use a food grade lubricant for use in food processing and packaging systems. Available in torque ranges from 2 to 3,000 lbs., they provide tamper-proof preset torque settings. As a coupling, the unit can handle up to 1.5 degrees of angular misalignment and a maximum parallel misalignment of 0.005- 0.015 in.
