TORQUE LIMITERSTorque Limiters

Protects wind turbines against peak loads, reverse torques and grid shorts. Established designs for slip torque values ranging from 4,000 to 50,000Nm.
  • Designed to protect both the gearbox and generator from extreme torque and damage
  • Generator shaft mounted to avoid resonance concerns and installation difficulties
  • Proven and tested to 5,600 torque events of 30°
  • Operation of the device occurs internally and requires no readjusting or maintenance
  • Automatic re-engagement no manual intervention to reset after slip event
  • Bi-directional functionality – no limitations
  • Wide temperature range -40° to 80°C
  • Engineered to function in unison with the Zero-Max
Composite Disc Coupling whereby protecting and serving all drivetrain requirements. Making it by far the most reliable solution in the Wind Industry.
