Product Announcement from DESCH Canada Ltd.
The Centrex® series are dry-running friction starting and safety clutches which automatically engage and disengage, depending on the rotational speed. As standard, they are manufactured in 7 sizes supporting torques up to 4500 Nm. The Centrex® centrifugal clutch has decisive advantages as a starting clutch, when the drive machine has to accelerate large rotational masses or has to start overcoming a load torque. When stopped and during the start-up period, the motor and the working machine are completely separated from one another until the preset rotational speed is reached where the clutch engages.
The Centrex® centrifugal clutch only transmits torque when the present rotational speed is exceeded. During operation, the Centrex® centrifugal clutch protects the components of the machine from damage caused by overload and separates the drive from the working machine if the drive machine jams.
Areas of use:
Sweeping machines, transmission for marine engines, ventilators, fans, compressors, pump drives, mixers, rollers, vibrators, centrifuges etc.
