Stieber introduces releasable backstops

Written by: Steiber Clutch | Published:

Stieber Clutch has expanded its range of load-sharing backstops with the introduction of its RSRT releasable backstop.

This is a centrifugal lift-off sprag type backstop with an integral torque limiter and release-under-load function. It has been developed for use on the high-speed or intermediate shaft of the driving machines in a multi-drive system. The release is performed using a simple hand pump to actuate the hydraulic cylinder, progressively releasing the backstop. When the oil pressure is released, the backstop is automatically reset to the original slipping torque.
