Why use a shear pin sprocket with sawdust or wood fines?

Posted by Terri Shipstone on Apr 20, 2017

Sometimes the rotation of the rotor is reduced due to an overload of material, or larger pieces of material being fed through the valve, jamming in the clearances. In this case, shear pin sprockets will shear the pin on the sprocket, reducing the risk of damage to the rotor.
