PILOT MOUNTED AND INTEGRAL MOUNTED TOTALLY ENCLOSED CLUTCHES
All UC products use O-rings as dynamic seals, therefore adequate lubrication must be provided in the actuating air circuit to ensure these O-rings do not run dry.
CARLSON UC “Universal Clutch” air clutches are available in pilot mount and integral mount designs. Manufactured in both 4″ and 6″ sizes, the UC models incorporate a TOTALLY ENCLOSED HOUSING that guards against outside contamination (IE., grease, oil, dirt, water) from entering the clutch cavity. This insures torque reliability and long service life. UC clutches are designed with TWO FRICTION SURFACES that provide HIGH TORQUE and greater heat dissipation capability. Their compact design also allows the clutches to attain HIGH RPM ratings. Installation is easy by using Power Flo adapter bushings that connect the clutch to the shaft. The clutch may be used in either end shaft or mid shaft mounted designs.
MODEL UC PM (Pilot Mount) – The Pilot mount backplate of the UC Clutch utilizes a pilot surface and bolt pattern for easy installation of sprocket or sheaves.
