Mechanical Power Transmission

Clutch/Brakes feature oil-shear design.

Posidyne X Series is engineered for up to 10 hp drives and is available in torque ratings from 100 to 1000 lb-in. Units transmit torque by shearing automatic transmission fluid between multiple friction discs, minimizing wear while absorbing heat of engagement, and dissipating it through housing. Pneumatic actuation allows precise control of torque and engagement speeds with simple pressure...
