Industrial Clutch (Waukesha, WI) has introduced
the Model HC/CH clutch designed for
use in marine applications including drawworks,
winches, and propulsion. The clutches
feature a key seal that allows the use of standard
O-rings and enables installation in current
configurations using a double keyway
and single drilled actuation hole. All models
feature forced oil-cooling provisions for high-energy engagements.
Disc-Pac cores are designed using heavy plate thicknesses to maximize
torque and heat capacity while minimizing spline wear to both the disc
cores and hub.
The clutch is available in two styles: the EWA model for oil-immersed
application, and EDA units designed to run as dry friction clutches.
This week's Question: MIT recently unveiled its prototype design for SpaceX founder Elon Musk's Hyperloop, a high-speed ground transport system that could theoretically send passengers from Los Angeles to San Francisco in half an hour. The...
