HOWDON SHEARPIN TORQUE LIMITERS

Howdon Power Transmission has been involved in the design and manufacture of torque limiters for 40 years. We invented the revolutionary Wedgegard Shearpin Torque Limiter in 1977 to address demand for a simple solution to torque overload.

Traditional overload clutches and torque sensors can be expensive and complicated to use. We developed our wedge-shaped shearpin to overcome the problems associated with conventional round shearpins. Since then, a wide range of overload clutches have been developed to incorporate the Wedgegard Shearpin Torque Limiter. These are used around the world to protect conveyor drives, sewage and process pumps, road tanker PTO drives, steel and paper mills, marine propulsion systems and many other applications.

We continue to build on the success of the Wedgegard Shearpin Torque Limiter, developing robust, dependable torque limiters to avoid the mechanical drive overload problems that can occur under the increasing demands of today’s processing plant.
