AquaMaKKs Clutches and Brakes

Clutch Engineering offers Wichita AquaMaKKs clutches and brakes. In these specialized parts, copper alloy wear plates provide great heat dissipation and consistent tension. Each unit is water cooled to allow for high thermal capacities in many challenging use cases. AquaMakks units each feature composite water jackets to reduce weight, while also improving water flow and adding resistance to corrosion. In these units, torque is transmitted by applying axial force from the pneumatic, hydraulic, or spring set actuator. Wichita engineers have utilized the latest cutting edge technologies and state-of-the-art materials to develop these composite water jackets. They are a revolutionary new breakthrough in water cooled clutch and brake design... (patent pending). Torque range – 55,440 to 1,596,000 lb-in (6,259 to 180,188 Nm) Typical applications - Drilling rigs, Deck Equipment, Coilers, Slitters and Lumber Processing Equipment

Kopper Kool Clutches and Brakes

Clutch Engineering offers Wichita Kopper Kool clutches and brakes, for applications such as drilling rigs, deck equipment, coilers, and more. These products are water cooled to achieve high thermal capacities while working within your applications. A featured hub spline provides perfect alignment of rotating discs. The units contain copper discs for excellent heat dissipation, which is a critical factor when working under conditions that will generate large amounts of heat. Engagement is achieved by pneumatic expansion of the airtube, which is an effective and reliable engagement method. This air-operated clutch also provides an accurately controlled continuous slip action for constant web tensioning. Torque range – 2,720 to 1,600,000 lb-in (307 to 180,771 Nm) Typical applications – Drilling rigs, Deck Equipment, Coilers, Slitters and Lumber Processing Equipment

Water-Cooled Clutches and Brakes

Offered by Clutch Engineering, these Eaton Airflex water-cooled brakes can be integrated into paper mills, drawworks, winches, mooring systems, and many other mechanical systems. These well-made products are disc type, and each unit is externally cooled. These water-cooled clutches and brakes can dissipate large amounts of heat, and they are available various models and sizes. Both spring-applied and air-applied versions of this product are available to suit your application. These are specially designed and constructed to use water to absorb and dissipate the thermal loads associated with the most severe clutch and brake uses that may occur. Torque range: 2,700 to 2,830,000 lb-in (305 to 319,507 Nm) Typical applications: Paper mills, drawworks, winches, mooring systems, dynamometers
