Friction clutches count among the torque-maintaining clutches and limit short-term torque peaks.
Power transmission in the driveline is not interrupted. The clutch torque is dependent on the spring forces, the mean friction radius, the coefficient of friction and the number of friction lining. Friction clutches have been designed to protect the driveline against high starting & peak torques and are able to maintain a higher torque during breakout.
If the driveline is blocked, the entire energy to be transmitted is converted into heat. Overheating of the friction clutch can result in temporary reduction of the clutch torque or destroy the friction lining. The thermal loading capacity of friction clutches depends on the design type, the friction linings and the installation conditions. We exclusively use friction disks with a high thermal loading capacity.
APPLICATIONS OF FRICTION CLUTCHES:
Mowers, Power harrows, Rotary Hoes, Slashers and more.
