Clutch and Brake

Eaton Airflex® Clutch and Brakes

Eaton Airflex products are designed for demanding applications that require high torque and horsepower absorption as well as precise controllability.

Constricting Clutches & Brakes: Drum-style products that when pressurized, expand radially inward forcing their friction shoes against an outer cylindrical drum surface. Use CB for power transmission applications, CM for marine and VC for heavy duty equipment. The new High Energy Ventilated Clutch features metallic friction linings to sustain more torque and extend slip times for improved efficiency and extended driveline component life.

Water-Cooled Brakes: There are 4 Water Cooled brake models: WCB, an air-applied brake, WCS, a springapplied pressure release brake, WCSB, a water-cooled and air cooled friction discs that are pressure and spring applied.

Air-Cooled Disc Clutches & Brakes: Featuring favorable torque-to-size ratios and low-inertia friction disc assemblies. The DB and FHB brake types are spring-applied, pressure-released multiple disc units. The DC type is a pressure-applied multiple disc unit that can be used as a clutch or brake.

Combination Clutch/Brake Packages: The FSPA line features an air-applied clutch and either a drum or disc style brake. The CBC and DCB lines feature an air-actuated disc clutch and a springapplied disc brake.

Caliper Disc Brakes: Engineered with opposed piston designs and symmetrical split construction – maximize flexibility and help balance braking performance. Type DP and Type DPA can both be air or hydraulically actuated.

Torque Limiting Couplings: Designed to withstand the torque spikes found in the most demanding applications of Variable Frequency Drives. Engaged at 0 RPM at a required air pressure and monitored electronic controls. When a system overload is detected the TLC automatically disengages.

Expanding Clutches & Brakes: Drum style products that when pressurized, expand radially outward forcing their friction shoes against an inner cylindrical drum surface.

Spring Applied Drum Brakes: Spring-applied and air released. Their design and construction are ideal for moderate speed, high torque, cyclic applications

Pneumatic Controls – Quick Release Valves (QRV): Engineered to automatically close upon pressurization and open when a pressure drop occurs – reducing lag time to exhaust the system. Four valve sizes are available.

Pneumatic Controls – Rotorseals Allow passage of pressurized fluids from a stationary inlet to a rotating shaft end. Available with single and dual passages.
