C Series Torque Limiter


Torque limiter operation
- Destrokes pump as
pressure increases
- Spring force varies
with swashplate
angle

The torque limiter monitors the pump swashplate angle and the pump
signal pressure. The torque limiter will not allow the pump to go to full
stroke as system pressure increases above the torque limiter setting. The
allowable pump displacement is inversely proportional to the pump discharge pressure. The higher the pressure, the less pump flow is available.
The pressure setting of the torque limiter varies with the swashplate
angle. The greater the swashplate angle, the lower the pressure setting.
If the pump is at maximum flow and the signal pressure increases above
the torque limiter setting, the torque limiter opens and directs some of the
signal oil to the tank through a slot in the torque limiter spool. A pressure drop occurs across the orifice in the signal line which results in a
slight loss of the actual signal pressure. The margin spool then moves up
and allows supply oil to the large actuator piston. The pump will then
destroke.

Maintains input torque


setting

The torque limiter will maintain control over the swashplate as long as
the signal pressure remains the same or increases for the high flow
demanded. During this condition, the torque limiter remains open and
continues to meter some of the signal oil to the tank.
The reduced pump flow will be at a sufficient level to maintain the input
torque setting. If the cylinder pressure continues to increase, the torque
limiter will again open and destroke the pump more.
In summary, full pump supply pressure is always available. However,
flow is regulated to maintain a required maximum input torque from the
engine. Full pump flow is available when the signal pressure is below
the torque limiter setting.

SYSTEM PRESSURE VS. FLOW RATE
The allowable pump displacement is inversely proportional to the pump discharge pressure. For line B
at 43 gpm (maximum flow) as shown here, the system pressure is less than maximum system pressure.
If the system pressure increases the maximum flow rate is reduced by the torque limiter. The pump at
the higher operating pressure is now in the torque limiter control range. As pressure continues to
increase the flow rate is further reduced.

Torque Limiter Adjustments


Adjustments to the torque limiter can be made, but are not usually
required.
To determine if the torque limiter is at fault or whether the engine is at
fault, try the following.
Check torque converter stall. If the torque stall specification is incorrect
and the implement hydraulics is causing the engine to stop, then probably
the engine is at fault. DO NOT ADJUST THE TORQUE LIMITER.
If torque converter stall specification is correct, but the hydraulic system
causes the engine to die. The torque limiter may to be adjusted. Before
adjusting the torque limiter make sure that pump standby pressure, maximum system pressure and margin pressure are correct.

B Series Torque Limiter Adjustments


1) Check Low Idle and adjust to above 950 rpm. Set at least to 970.
The fuel pump low idle spring tends to droop after a number of hours are
put on the machine.
2) Operate boom down at low idle against the boom stop. If the
hydraulic system no longer causes the engine to die, no further adjustment is required.
3) If the engine still dies. Back out the torque limiter to reduce the
spring setting.
4) Operate boom down at low idle against the boom stop. Increase the
torque limiter setting until the engine dies. Back out the torque limiter
about a quarter of a turn.
5) Restart machine. Operate boom down at low idle against the boom
stop. If the engine does not die the torque limiter has been adjusted correctly.

CHAPTER : Hydraulic System

C Series Torque Limiter Adjustments


1) Check Low Idle and adjust to above 950 rpm. Set at least to 970.
The fuel pump low idle spring tends to droop after a number of hours are
put on the machine.
2) Operate boom down at low idle against the boom stop. The engine
rpm should drop about 100 to 140 rpm from the low idle setting. If this
occurs, then no further adjustment is required.
3) If the engine rpm drops lower than 100 to 140 rpm. Back out the
torque limiter to reduce the spring setting until engine lug falls between
100 to 140 rpm less than low idle.
4) If engine rpm lug is less than a 100 rpm, the torque limiter setting
should be increased.

SYSTEM TESTING
System Tests
The performance of the 416-446 hydraulic systems can be easily tested. Two pressure gauge fittings
are installed on the hydraulic oil pump.
Before performing any pump tests or making adjustments to the pump control valve, measure and
record the machine cycle times. If the cycle times are within specification, checking low pressure
standby or margin pressure may not be required unless the system is overheating. Cycle time checks
will also indicate if all or some of the implements in the system are operating within specification.
This information can be helpful in determining if the pump or the implement is at fault. If all cycle
times are too slow, margin pressure may be set too low. If the machine is too responsive, the margin
pressure may be set too high.
Connect an 8T0859 gauge to each pressure fitting. The oil lines for the gauges should be long enough
so the gauges can be observed from the operator's station.With the gauges installed, follow the testing
and adjusting procedures in the Service Manual for maximum system pressure and low pressure standby. When performing the margin pressure test, follow the Service Manual Procedures with the following exceptions:
1. Using a 6V8731 Union in the tilt circuit is not required.
2. Activate any implement slowly and watch the gauges.
If margin pressure needs to be adjusted, the following method is quicker and safer for the mechanic:
1. Compare margin pressure to low pressure standby.
2. Mentally add to or subtract from low pressure standby about the same amount required to set
margin pressure to specification. Since both pressures are adjusted by the same screw, an
adjustment to one also affects the other. This relationship, however, is not linear.
3. Make this adjustment to the flow compensator (margin spool) while the machine is in low pressure standby.
4. Recheck margin pressure after adjusting low pressure standby.
NOTE: Due to the signal pressure limiter, the steering circuit is commonly used to check margin pressure because the steering circuit pressure is below maximum system pressure. When steering is stalled,
a signal of approximately 14000 kPa (2050 psi) is sent to the pump. The pump increases flow due to
oil being sent to tank through the signal pressure limiter. Pump supply pressure increases. The difference between the pump supply pressure and the steering signal is margin pressure.
