VE Clutches and Brakes

Available from Clutch Engineering, the Eaton Airflex type VE element assembly is compatible with many mechanical applications, including construction equipment systems, maring winches, metalworking systems, and others. This product is air actuated and it uses a rubber air tube as a part of its construction. The VE has an open design which allows better air flow to help cool the unit when it is in use. To operate, Airflex expanding elements concentrate the frictional force on the inside drum diameter thereby achieving maximum torque. The torque lever arm is the drum radius, not a reduced radius as occurs in plate clutches.

Torque range: 25,500 to 58,500 lb-in (2,880 to 6,610 Nm)
Typical applications: Construction equipment, marine winches, metalworking
