Safety devices

To protect the drive shaft transmission and the machine from sudden stress and incidental torque, safety devices are necessary. Their utilization in drive shaft transmission allows to significantly reduce the cost of storage and repair.

In a power transmission, especially in agricultural applications, it is not easy to properly determine the limit conditions to which the driveshaft will be subject. To protect the drive shaft transmission and the machine from sudden stress and incidental torque, safety devices are necessary. Their utilization in drive shaft transmission allows to significantly reduce the cost of storage and repair.
Generally speaking, there are three different categories of safety devices:

  • Torque limiter: devices that limit the torque transmitted to a prefixed value which is equal to the calibration of the device itself.
  • Free wheel: devices that allows the power transmission just in one direction of rotation.
  • Combined safety devices: made through the combination of a torque limiter with free wheel.

The range of EUROCARDAN safety device includes all categories of devices mentioned above, made to satisfy all needs and specific requirements of agricultural machinery.
It is very important that all safety devices are mounted on the machine side and properly covered though protections that are integrated with the driveshaft. It is always recommended to use high quality grease for extreme pressures (EP) in the devices that requires lubrication.

BOLT TORQUE LIMITER

Torque limitation is guaranteed by the shearing of a bolt placed eccentrically to the axis of the joint. The calibration is a function of distance from the joint axis of the bolt, its diameter and its strength class. To restore the transmission the bolt must be replaced.
