Industrial Uses and Applications of a High Speed Clutch
A high speed clutch is used to transmit power from a transmission to a gearbox. The mechanism consists of a hub and a shaft. The hub includes a first piston 56 and a first thrust member. The latter is rotated and translates the force of the first piston to the drive cup 64. The shaft then rotates through the compression of the friction disks and onto the teeth 66 of the high-speed side of the threading clutch apparatus 40. The second thrust member 78 and the second friction disks 80 are supported by bearings 68.
The threading clutch apparatus has a high-speed side 46 and a low-speed side 48. The threading spindle retracts when the clutch is engaged, and the running clutch facilitates the change from low to high speed. A threading spindle in the upper chamber engages the second drive cup, causing the friction disks 80 to disengage from the first drive cup. The operating torque of the high-speed side of the threading clutch is determined by the timer relay 114.
The threading clutch apparatus comprises a high-speed side 46 and a low-speed side 42. The working spindle is low-speed, and the high-speed side is energized. This runs the threading process while the threading spindle is in the high-speed position. The threading spindle and threading tool retract the high-speed side of the threading clutch.
The high-speed side of the threading clutch is controlled by solenoid valves 118, 120. These valves can be energized or de-energized, depending on the need. In addition, the solenoid valves can be adjusted to the desired tap depth using a limit switch 116. The timing relay 114 closes switch 116 and allows electricity to flow to the solenoid valve 102.
The high-speed side of the threading clutch apparatus 40 has a generally cylindrical housing 50. A first port 52 receives air from a fluid supply. A second port, 72, is connected to the housing. The first back member, 62, is fixed to the housing. The axis of the high-speed side has a first port 58. The air supply 102 can provide different pressures to the piston. The air in the high-speed side of the threading clutch is connected to two ports.
The high-speed side of the high-speed clutch includes a generally cylindrical housing 50. The housing is connected to a first port 52. The first port receives fluid from the fluid supply. The first piston 56 is positioned proximate to the housing. The first piston is in fluid communication with the second port. The first piston forces the first thrust member 58 against a plurality of first friction disks 60. Several first friction disks are disposed between the first thrust member 58 and the first back member 62.
The high-speed side 46 of the high-speed clutch is a generally cylindrical housing connected to a first port of the low-speed side of the high-speed side by a shaft. A first port receives fluid on the second side of the housing. A first piston has a first piston. A second piston is in fluid communication with the first back member, 62. The high-speed side of the high-speed clutch has a second port.
The Power Grip High-Speed Clutch is designed to withstand high-speed applications on internal combustion engines. It will fit standard SAE industrial flywheels and features a heavy-duty friction disc. In addition, its design is ideal for bell housing gearbox clutch applications. It is also available in larger bore sizes. These three-speed models can handle up to 500 horsepower and are available in single, double, and triple-plate configurations.
The Power Grip clutch is WPT’s first entry into the power transmission market. Initially designed for oil-field equipment, the Power Grip High Speed clutch is a hydraulic and pneumatic system hybrid. It has heavy-duty friction discs and coil release springs. It mounts to any standard industrial SAE diesel engine. The single-plate model of the Power Grip High-Speed clutch is an 11-inch model, while the three-plate 21-inch model is a three-plate version.
