COMBINED CENTRIFUGAL CLUTCH AND FLEXIBLE COUPLING: 11th September, 2017

Most "Off the shelf" centrifugal clutches for low power applications are supplied with sprocket, vee belt pulley or timing pulley, according to Combidrive Limited. For the much smaller proportion of customers requiring an arrangement to couple two shafts coaxially, poor choice and availability may prove to be an obstacle, particularly where small quantities/prototypes are concerned. With this in mind Combidrive can now offer a combined centrifugal clutch and flexible coupling as a single unit, but comprising two standard components. The clutch (with vee belt pulley included) has a capacity of up to c 8HP at 3500rpm and can be supplied with a bore of up to 22mm, whilst the flexible coupling part can be bored up to 26mm.
