Integral Friction Clutch

Integral Friction Clutch

This is a Weasler custom-engineered component, which is not available through our aftermarket distribution network. For more information on this product or to discuss a custom solution for your unique OEM application, contact the Weasler engineering team now.

The INTEGRAL friction clutch is indispensable in certain agricultural implement applications. The friction clutch is the only torque limiter that has the ability to continuously transmit power (at a reduced level) while overloaded. This is valuable during start up of high inertia machines, as well as for leveling out torsional fluctuations due to high cyclic loads. The TorQmaster patented technology dissipates heat quickly, improving durability while protecting the machine.

PERFORMANCE BENEFITS
• IMPLEMENT OVERLOAD PROTECTION.
• ISOLATES AND DISSIPATES HEAT MINIMIZING DOWNTIME FOR HIGHER PRODUCTIVITY.
• CORROSION RESISTANT FRICTION DISCS.
• OPTIMIZED DESIGN AFFORDS MORE RELIABLE TORQUE SETTING.
• MINIMAL MAINTENANCE.
• EASILY ADJUSTABLE TO OPTIMIZE THE CAPACITY OF THE IMPLEMENT.
• SMOOTH OPERATION, NO DAMAGING TORQUE SPIKES.
• TORQUE TRANSMISSION WHILE SLIPPING AIDS IN DISLODGING PLUGS FOR INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY.
