Mechanical Clutches

View in Online Catalog

Intermittent shock loads or overload conditions can stress equipment to the point of premature failure.  Dodge Torque-Tamer clutches provide a simple, economical solution.  When an overload occurs, the Torque-Tamer is designed to slip, protecting valuable gear reducers and other connected equipment.  Once the overload is cleared, the Torque-Tamer automatically resets and resumes transmitting torque. Dodge Torque-Tamers are easily adjusted to slip at a specified torque value, allowing for customized protection.  Suited for use in a wide variety of applications, Torque Tamers may be used with stock or special sprockets, gears, sheaves, or other driven members.  With non-asbestos friction discs, long-life bushings, and no required lubrication, Torque Tamers are built for long life and minimal maintenance.
