Centrifugal clutches used with V-belt transmissions, like all belt drives, rely on optimum belt tension to maintain an efficient drive. Under normal circumstances belt tensioners are used for this purpose, however in certain cases such as when the center distance between the pulleys is limited, the use of tension rollers etc is not always possible.
A new design of Centrifugal Clutch developed by Amsbeck Maschinentechnik incorporates an automatic belt tensioner, which automatically adjusts the driving pulley diameter to take up the belt slackness and maintain an efficient drive. Typically, these clutches are used in high-quality reversible vibratory plate compactors.
