Torq/Gard Sizing and Selection

Torq/Gard® overload clutches are available in seven sizes with trip torques from 13 in-lbs to 8000 in-lbs. Torq/Gard Clutches may be sized using the Speed-Horsepower Chart, the Speed-Torque Chart and these formulas:

  • Torque (in-lb) = Horsepower (hp) x 63025 / RPM
  • Horsepower (hp) = Torque (in-lbs) x RPM / 63025
  • Tripping Torque (in-lbs) = Operating Torque x Service Factor
