Breakthrough Torque Limiter Offering Released by Rexnord


MILWAUKEE, WI (USA) - A new, breakthrough torque limiter option is now available from Rexnord for applications that are susceptible to torque overload. The Autogard 820 Remote-Reset Torque Limiter is a first-of-its-kind option, allowing users to reset the device from a distance, eliminating traditional, hands-on labor requirements. This innovation can reduce downtime by anywhere from minutes to hours for manufacturers in heavy-duty industries, such as energy, metal processing, mining, aggregates, automotive, food processing and pulp & paper.


“Mechanical torque limiters play an important role in limiting damage that can be caused by jams and overloads,” says Rob Hucker, Product Manager. “However the downtime caused by a disengaged torque limiter still causes work stoppage until a support person is available to take on what can be a time-consuming, manual reset process. The new Autogard 820 Remote-Reset Torque Limiter changes that. It was developed based on our customers’ requests for a speedier, easier reset option for high-torque applications. We’ve solved the problem with a remote-reset feature, meaning the torque limiter can quickly be reset from anywhere onsite or offsite with the touch of a button, flip of a switch, or click of a mouse. No longer does it take manpower to physically reset a unit. This new offering can translate to more-immediate uptime, a value to any user of torque limiters.”


The Autogard 820 Series Remote-Reset Torque Limiter can be installed independently or as a retrofit upgrade to existing Autogard 820 Series Torque limiters.
