Torque Airflex VC
Torque capacities up to:
Airflex VC element assemblies are designed and built for severe clutching and braking applications on heavy duty equipment. They are unmatched for high starting loads and sustained slippage where heat generated tends to lower efficiency and shorten the operating life of conventional clutches. Their high torque ratings permit use of smaller diameter units which lowers contact velocity on high speed applications. Ventilated construction permits passage of cooling air, to rapidly dissipate heat from the friction shoes. Torque is transmitted from the side plates of the elements through torque bars to the friction shoes.
