Description

Features
All torques realisable
Excellent torque to weight ratio
Low mass moment of inertia
High thermal load capacity
Switching heat dissipated by internal oil cooling
Long service life of the discs
Low maintenance, any disc wear automatically compensated by piston travel
Remote control capability
Continuous increase of oil pressure, and so shockless switching
Mechanical emergency operation device on failure of hydraulic oil supply
Function and application
Oil cooled and hydraulically operated multi disc clutches for ship?for marine gears. They are used where high torques must be transmitted reliably in the smallest spaces. Setting the trend for Stromag development work is the "No Limit" (KMS 200,000). With a rated torque of over 2,000,000 Nm, a diameter of 1.2 m, and a weight of nearly 4 t, it is the largest and most powerful clutch to date on the entire drive sector.
