Centrifugal clutches and brakes

General technical explanations

The most important factor for selection of a centrifugal clutch is the amount of power to be transmitted. Knowing the power available from the drive motor and the operating speed, the torque to be transmitted can be calculated and the size of the clutch determined. For the vast majority of drives, there is a wide range of clutch types and designs. Our sizes 01 to 13 cover depending on engagement and operating speeds a torque range up to ca. 2000 Nm. To be sure that clutches operate correctly, grease, oil and moisture must be kept away from their friction surfaces.

Calculating the torque: Md n P = torque [Nm] = speed of rotation [rpm] = power P = M
