machinery components for permanent reliability while simultaneously meeting the requirements for lightweight construction.

In spite of all that, machinery failures due to suddenly occurring unexpected overload cannot be excluded completely.
One single damage, however, may considerably exceed the
costs for efficient overload protection.
Now as before, appropriate safety equipment is necessary to
protect machinery. In the first place, safety couplings which
are nowadays available in a variety of different versions and
executions are used for this purpose in drive systems. However, not each of these couplings is suitable for every drive
application in the same way. The decisive criterion is the sum
of the factors which may contribute to the disturbance of the
operation processes. Therefore, new applications often also

require new safety systems.


The HYGUARD safety coupling belongs to such protection
systems. Contrary to the shear-pin coupling it works after a
completely different operation principle.
The torque is transmitted by frictional engagement of the
contact faces of shaft and hub. If the preset torque is not
exceeded, it will work without slipping. If, however, the preset
torque value will be surpassed, the hydrostatic pressure is
released immediately, thus disconnecting the system.
Re-commissioning is possible within shortest time, as the
only thing to do is to set the system under pressure again.
Shear-pin couplings belong to the most well-known safety
devices. They fulfil their safety function by cutting-off the
bolts used for torque transmission at a predetermined nominal shear point as soon as the admissible torque has been
exceeded. Extensive test programmes, some of which were
carried out by scientific institutes, investigated the influence

engagement between the contact faces.
The amount of transmittable torque is
determined by the oil pressure in the
ring gap. This pressure is adjustable,
and thus, the torque, too.

is given by the safety disconnection, the
essential components of which are the
shear ring and the shear tube. There is a
firm connection between shear ring and
shaft, whereas the shear tube is accommodated in the movable part. If the
operating torque exceeds the preset
value, the safety element will slip on the
profiled surfaces and the shear ring cuts
off the top of the shear-tube. The system
is depressurized within milliseconds and
the connection is released.

Re-commissioning
The HYGUARD Safety Coupling is
easy to activate again. A high-pressure
pump with pressure gauge for pressure

is connected to the injector, and with

With shear pin couplings, the max.


cut-off torque corresponds to abt.
2,5 times the torque for normal
operation.
Permissible additional loads:max.
starting load of coupling = 1,5 PKN
max. short-circuit load of
coupling = 3 PKN
If higher angular or radial misalignments occur in operation, it
may be necessary to reduce the
max. permissible operating speed.
The max. permissible bore diameter is a further criterion for the
determination of the coupling size.
Therefore, having selected the coupling size on basis of the power,
the bore needs to be verified, too. If
the bore is not suitable to accommodate the existing shaft, a bigger
coupling size has to be taken.
Important note
The values specified in the dimension tables for the max. permissible
bore only apply to key connections
if the height of the keyway does not
