Product Announcement from WPT Power Corporation
WPT Power's New Power Performance Low Inertia Products are specifically
designed to exceed the demands of high cycle, high energy and high speed Applications
Sintered bronze friction material replaces the standard molded material increasing the wear and life in its application.
With added ventilation and a very high temperature threshold, WPT can reduce challenging problem applications.
This new product is meant to be used as a drop in replacement which will vastly improve your LI clutch or brakes performance characteristics. It can also be purchased in a completed new assembly.

WPT High Torque clutches and Spring Set brakes range from 4" through 60" diameter. Designed for metal forming and stamping equipment and general power transmission applications. From 2,340(lb.in.) 260(Nm) through 11,430,000(lb.in.) 1,301,800(Nm) static torque.
WPT's mechanical power take-off clutches are suitable for inline and sideload applications on all internal combustion engines with standard SAE flywheel housing dimensions. All PTOs and parts are 100% interchangeable with existing PTOs. All units are supplied with sealed ball pilot bearings to eliminate lubriction problems normally encountered. Ball bearing throwout collars are optional on 14" units and standard on 311 units.
Type 1 PTOs
Type 1 PTOs are best suited for engine drives on rock crushers, dredge pumps, oilfield mud pumps, waste shredders and other horsepower applications.
Type 2 PTOs
Type 2 PTOs are best suited for medium to high loads. Typical applications include engine driven pumps for irrigation, fire control, high pressure spray as well as road planers, wood chippers and utility construction equipment
Power Grip High Speed Clutches
Power Grip High Speed Clutches are designed to withstand severe applications mounted to internal combustion engines.
The Power Grip Clutch is designed to accommodate in-line mounting for heavy duty power transmission. Used in conjunction with either a quick change or standard driving adapter, the Power Grip Clutch is useful as a coupling clutch for shaft to shaft applications.
Water Cooled Brakes (WCB) are designed for constant slip and severe high heat braking applications. The brakes are air actuated and cooled with a continuous flow of coolant from either a closed or open loop cooling system.
Available with two actuation methods, either airtube or piston. The airtube is corrosion resistant and no special coatings or treatments are required. Field service is simple and error free.
Retrofit kits are available to convert an existing single or dual piston actuated WCB to airtube actuation with no other modifications require
WPT Power's new Caliper Disc Brake products are specificatlly designed to meet a wider range of global applications.
WPT Power Winches have working capacities from 9,000LBS (4,082kg) to 130,000LBS (58,967kg).They are suited for oil drilling, wreckers towing and recovery.
Versatile pump drive that has a power take-off mounted behind it to allow for live multiple pump drives. Many unique accessories are available to complete the final assembly
