Centrifugal Clutches

Centrifugal Clutches are used in applications where smooth acceleration and complete dis-engagement from the load are required. They provide "soft" starts for sensitive products through mechanical means to provide outstanding reliability at very low cost. They have been used extensively in conveying applications and well as gas powered equipment where complete dis-engagement of driven shafts are necessary to allow the engine to continue to idle.

Model CCB Centrifugal Clutches

(10)
Centrifugal Clutches are used in applications where smooth acceleration and completely dis-engaged load are required. They provide "soft" starts without start up shock for sensitive applications through mechanical means providing outstanding reliability at very low cost. Our unique, patented design transmits the torque from the motor through urethane rollers which ride on the faces of an internal hexagonal shaft. As the RPM increases, the friction shoes move radially to make contact with the clutch housing to engage & drive the load. During this process, the rollers "walk up" the inclined plane of the hex face and provide a "cam" assisted force on the shoes ensuring the load is driven without slipping. This is a very important difference ...
