Used to open and close gate valves in water treatment and irrigation systems, this friction torque limiter coupling connects to a power drill with a #3 Morse taper socket. The coupling is pre-set at the factory to a torque value you specify and can be adjusted in the field if needed. When the torque setting is exceeded, the coupling slips to prevent over tightening.
