Centrifugal clutches work as a soft start or no load clutch to help a enigne getting started. So the engine can be started without load or operated at idling speed. This characteristic of the centrifugal clutches is used effectively in drives that require a high start-up torque.
This makes it possible to choose a engine that is customised to the regular working speed rather than the high start-up torque. The result is a small and cost-efficient engine.
• start-up of the drive torque without load
• automatic gentle activation of the load at defined start-up speeds
• at operating speed, the torque is transferred nearly without slippage
Centrifugal clutches and centrifugal brakes are used in the following areas: Construction machinery, transport cooling, sweeping machinery, mowing machinery, motor saws, emergency power units, pump drives, lawn mowers, fans, cart racing sports, tree-stump cutters, roping-down devices, hydropower plants and wind turbines.
