The range of centrifugal clutches and brakes from Norman G Clark have been designed for use when input and output side should be separated during a standstill and the output side should work speed-dependant. The centrifugal clutches feature load-free starting and slip-free torque transmission at operating speed making them suitable for use as am emergency braking system. They can lower or slow down loads at a defined speed.
The types of centrifugal clutch selected is dependent on the amount of power requiring transmission. Knowing the power available from the drive motor and the operating speed, the torque to be transmitted can be calculated and the size of the clutch determined. Norman G Clark offer the sizes 01 to 13 cover and depending on engagement and operating speeds: a torque range up to ca. 2000 Nm.
