JB Torque Limiters

Available from Clutch Engineering, Brunel Corporation’s Type JB torque limiters are useful in many mechanical applications. These include conveyor systems, packaging systems, bottling machines, printing presses, and other mechanical systems. JB Torque Limiters are designed to provide instant release at the preset torque. Units can be supplied pilot bored or finish bored and keywayed. With these well-made products, when the overload releases the clutch, the hub travels one revolution before the clutch automatically re-engages. This useful feature makes JB torque limiters perfect for applications where a restart has to occur in the correct position. This is also relevant for when manual resetting is not a possibility. The hub may be fitted to either shaft and is intended to be axially constrained against a shoulder to resist the resetting force and locked by means of a set screw onto the shaft key.

Release torque range: 50 to 1,000 lb-ft (68 to 1,356 Nm)
Typical applications: Conveyors, packaging, bottling machines, printing presses, indexing drives
