Shear pin hubs
damage associated with jamming or overload. The product consists of a steel sprocket, hub assembly, and bushing. In this combination, the shear pin acts as the link between the hub assembly and the gear. As part of their design, the inner part is held intact thanks to its connection to a shaft. The outer part, where the sprocket is bolted, keeps rotating even after the pin breaks.
Additionally, the shear pin hub assembly features sprocket mounting bolts
and hardened liners. Shear Pin Hubs are made to withstand different load increments. Despite having universal mounting, you must first determine your requirements before choosing the right shear pin hub. Meanwhile, to reset the hub, you must replace the shear pin manually.
You will find shear pin hubs in, among others, cement, agriculture, forestry, mining, packaging, and paper industries. Here, machine operators encounter infrequent overloads.
