  • A fan of fuel savings
    connects to a valve that directs fluid to a fan clutch. High temperatures engage the clutch and low ones disengage it -- well, almost. Engaged viscous-coupled fans typically slip about 5 to 10% of shaft speed. And disengaged fans may still run at about 45% of engaged speed, especially at low engine rpm
  • Electric Clutch Used on Engine Cooling Fan Helps Save Energy and Improves Mileage
    On-off fan controls aren't ideal for all applications. Lift trucks and skid loaders, for example, tend to cycle on-off clutches more frequently because such vehicles always need some amount of engine-fan cooling. Two-speed fan clutches work better in these applications. Such clutches have embedded
  • The Joint Strike Fighter: A plane for all reasons
    engine turns the counter-rotating blades in the fan by a shaft and clutch to generate 18,000 lb of vertical thrust. The JSF's clean undercarriage and internally carried weapons reduce the plane's radar signature. The JSF flies beside another aircraft as it undergoes flight testing. The JSF tests its
