H1600 Overload Clutches
The HOR Series H1600 is an automatic reset ball detent style overload release clutch. It has been designed to provide accurate and dependable torque disconnect protection for mechanical power transmission equipment. Torque is transmitted through the clutch in one of two paths.
TORQUE ADJUSTMENTThe HOR Series H1600 Series Clutch can be factory set to your requirements. The torque setting of the clutch can easily be adjusted in the field to suit your needs. Two degrees of adjustment are available and described below.
Fine Adjustment:Lift the bearing lock washer tabs which secure the nut in position. Use a spanner wrench to adjust the bearing nut to your desired torque setting. Clockwise rotation will increase the torque and conversely, counterclockwise rotation will decrease the torque. Once the desired torque setting is made, fold the tab of the washer over the slot on the bearing nut to secure it in position at the new torque release level.
Coarse Adjustment:Large variations in torque setting can be accomplished by replacing the disc spring pack with that of a higher or lower spring rate. This change will effectively alter the load which can be applied to the balls.
