Drop in replacement for traditional coupling hub that protects machinery against torque spikes and provides equipment with the ability to drive through transients allowing for critical processes to continue.
Peak Shaver Safety Hub
The Riverhawk Peak Shaver is a hydraulically activated device that becomes part of a complete coupling system. It works with a flexible coupling to help protect machines from transmitting unwanted forces. The device can either be mounted on the shaft where it would replace a hub or it can be mounted between shafts as a spacer piece. Under normal operating conditions, the peak shaver transmits 100% of the shaft power from the driving shaft to the driven shaft, providing protection when one of the machines experiences a sharp spike in torque. When a spike occurs, the internal mechanism will slip relative to one another allowing the two shafts to continue their rotation. After the torque spike has passed, the device will re-grip, continuing to transmit normal torque load.
