Reduce downtime and
protect your drive, with Howdon torque limiters and disc brakes


Designers and manufacturers of torque limiters since 1977. 
Howdon Power Transmission has been involved in the design and manufacture of torque limiters for over 40 years. We invented the revolutionary Wedgegard Shearpin Torque Limiter in 1977 to address demand for a simple solution to torque overload protection.

A torque limiter is a device that protects mechanical equipment, such as conveyors and pumps, from damage caused by jamming or overload.

Designs for shaft couplings, chain and pulley drives, universal joint shafts and more. Units are compact with high release torques.
