Speed-Controlled Centrifugal Clutches
CENTASTART-V speed-controlled centrifugal clutches are adaptable to many systems, including marine and industrial applications. Torsional vibrations and impacts are damped, reducing wear on equipment. This means CENTASTART-V clutches are built to last even under harsh conditions. A combination of a highly flexible CENTAFLEX -A series rubber element subjected only to compressive stress, and several centrifugal weights with friction lining connected by tension springs make up the CENTASTART-V system, creating a thermally-resistant design with a precisely-determinable engaging speed. The CENTASTART-V allows soft engaging and slip-free power transmission when reaching engaging speed, protecting against overload. Available in many configurations, standard and special designs, with flywheel connections according to SAE, and for non-standard flywheels.
