AB - Nowal Pierson was an owner and operator
of his own trucking business who experienced breakdowns on
his fleet with excessive downtime and repair costs. Knowing
his trucks, he discovered that most over-torque damage to
the truck goes undetected, as the vehicle is still functioning
after over-torque occurs. The damage can go unnoticed, sometimes
for months, although most of the time within one to four weeks
the truck components will break down at an unexpected time.
The driver at that time has done nothing wrong as the damage
took place previously. Discovering a solution to these expensive
repairs, Mr. Pierson designed, created, and developed the
torque fuse system. The torque fuses are by far cheaper to
replace than differentials, drive shafts, gears, axles, etc.
This system protects the truck components from these costly
expenses, and there is no downtime.
The Power Train Saver is mounted into the drive shaft.
It has three slots in which the three torque fuse pins sit.
The torque fuses are designed and engineered to shear. This
shuts down the differential before any other damage can
occur. This saves the whole drive train from over-torque
damage. The fix is quick and easy because the driveline
has remained intact on a support bushing. With the Power
Train Saver you can install the torque fuses in minutes
and you are back on the job. This unique unit comes in all
sizes to fit light, medium and heavy duty trucks and will
work on many other types of equipment and in a variety of
applications. The torque fuses are engineered, tensile tested,
weigh rated, accurate, and very durable. The range starts
at 1 (2000ft/lbs) and goes up at 500ft/lb increments to
13 (8500ft/lb) for small trucks and equipment. For large
trucks and equipment, Torque Fuses start at F (5500ft/lbs
and go up at 1000ft/lb increments to Z (25500ft/lbs). This
allows you to customize your set-up, put in the torque fuse
you need for your particular configuration, so that now
you can virtually eliminate all over-torque damage.
Power Train Savers continues to market in North America.
This company is growing and the uses of the Power Train
Saver torque fuses are endless though the focus remains
on the trucking industry. This innovative approach finally
allows you to put drive train protection in place to save
your trucks and equipment from over-torque damage.
Power Train Savers is setting the standard
in power train over-torque protection.
