Nexen DFC Pilot Mount Clutches for Foundry Mullers
Nexen Group, Inc., offers two models of DFC Pilot Mount Clutches (DFC-1650 and DFC-2200) for foundry mulling applications. These are self-contained, dual faced, air-engaged friction clutches with a bearing mounted plate (pilot) for mounting pulleys or sprockets. Two sizes fit shafts up to 3.375 inch are designed for shaft-end mounts only. DFC clutches are capable of speeds up to 1200 rpm and thermal horsepower dissipation of up to 10 horsepower. These clutches have a heat sink capacity of 870,000/ 1,460,000 foot pounds. Accessories include eight pulley (sheave) sizes with “5V” or “8V” belt grooves.
The DFC’s simple piston and cylinder actuator is sealed with Viton O-rings for easy servicing provides low maintenance costs when compared to competitive products with large, expensive air bladders. These products are also designed with segmented, non-asbestos, friction facings for easy replacement and free-flow of cooling air. Low inertia friction discs reduce load acceleration times.
DFC Pilot Mount Clutches (models 1650/2200) highlights include:
- Static torque (at 80 psi): 36,000/66,800 in. lbs.
- Maximum speed: 1200/900 RPM
- Effective facing area: 227 in² /330 in²
