Spring Engaged, Air Released Industrial Friction Clutches


Also known as spring set or spring applied clutches, these models transmit a fixed amount of torque that is determined by spring pressure. Air pressure is applied to overcome spring pressure and disengage the clutch.

IMPORTANT: If holding of the machine component is required when the clutch is disengaged, a combination clutch-brake should be considered.
