Multi-disc clutch / air-operated
Mach III Clutch, Inc.
Types of Multi-Disc Industrial Friction Clutches Available from Mach III
Air Engaged/Spring Released Friction Clutches
Torque transmitted is proportional to the amount of air pressure applied. When air pressure is absent, springs provide positive separation of drive discs so that torque is no longer transmitted.
Spring Engaged/Air Released Friction Clutches
A fixed amount of torque is transmitted. To release the clutch, air pressure is applied to overcome the spring pressure.
