COVID-19 Update - Clutch Engineering is open to support you.
Clutch Engineering offers disc couplings that solve the issue of misalignment in a variety of mechanical applications. Disc couplings are designed to use flexible diaphragms to accommodate misalignment in particular systems. There are no wear parts, so neither lubrication or maintenance is required. This simplifies the repair, upgrading, and overall upkeep of your equipment. If you have any questions about disc couplings, contact our team directly.
Clutch Engineering offers Ameridrives Ameriflex diaphragm couplings for extended reliable use. When installed and aligned properly, these couplings are also maintenance-free and are designed for infinite life. These products offer a high torque capacity with a relatively small diameter and a light weight. Split series couplings are used when mechanical requirements can not be met with a single series coupling (i.e., envelope limitations, over-hung moment requirements, etc.). Torque range: 2,500 to 500,000 lb-ft (3,390 to 677,910 Nm) Typical applications: Pumps, compressors, fans, conveyors, generators
Clutch Engineering offers Coupling Corporation of America's (CCA) Flexxor diaphragm couplings for use with compressors, fans, pumps, and other industrial equipment needs. These couplings are dynamically balanced, compatible with a wide range of machinery, and they are extremely flexible. This flexible attribute is able to deliver exceptional performance in high-speed and high-torque mechanical use cases. CCA makes use of a unique holed diaphragm design, which has been further refined over 50 years. Flexxor couplings enable easy machinery upkeep because they require no lubrication or direct maintenance. The FLEXXOR has consistently been the most flexible and durable coupling on the market, making it an attractive option for many industrial applications. Its unique holed diaphragm design allows for high misalignment, while still transmitting the highest torque values. Torque range: 144 to 9,624,000 lb-in (16 to 1,087,372 Nm) Typical applications: Compressors, fans, pumps, gas turbines, test stands
Clutch Engineering offers TB Wood's Form-Flex disc couplings for applications that range from general industrial equipment to specialized high speed precision machines. Flexible Disc couplings can be used in many use cases to support the operation of critical mechanical systems. These high-performance products feature all metal construction and require no lubrication. This gives them a long operating life and high torsional stiffness, while freeing up time that would otherwise be spent on maintenance. Special materials and coatings are available to defend the coupling in corrosive environments. These couplings feature very versatile designs and they can be customized to meet the demands of virtually any coupling application. Torque range: 300 to 4,000,000 lb-in (33 to 451,939 Nm) Typical applications: Pumps, compressors, fans, machine tools, cooling towers, printing presses, power generation
Clutch Engineering offers Lovejoy SU type industrial disc couplings for use with industrial fans, compressors, hoists, and more. These couplings consist of two hubs and one disc pack, they are only suitable for angular and axial misalignment. Additionally, these are designed to function without ever needing maintenance or lubrication. These products use are no wear parts, and infinite life is possible with correct alignment. These specialized parts can also be heated up to high temperatures, usually 450º F to 600º F (235º C to 315º C). Lovejoy disc coupling hubs are shipped with Interference Fit bores, unless otherwise specified. Torque range: 2,100 to 650,500 lb-in (240 to 73,500 Nm) Typical applications: Blowers, fans, compressors, hoists, conveyors
Clutch Engineering provides high-quality Lovejoy SX type industrial disc couplings for various industrial applications such as blowers, fans, compressors, and more. These specially designed parts have similarities to type SU, but they have two disc packs. These products can be found in use with mechanical systems for industrial blowers, fans, compressors, and many more applications. An advantage of these couplings is that they feature two flex planes, which allows them to accommodate parallel misalignment. These couplings are also torsionally rigid and they are able to transfer torque without backlash. For all Lovejoy disc coupling hubs with taper bores and taper bores with keyways, Lovejoy manufactures these hubs with bores using tolerances and specifications that are supplied by the customer. Torque range: 2,100 to 1,947,000 lb-in (240 to 220,000 Nm) Typical applications: Blowers, fans, compressors, hoists, conveyors
Clutch Engineering offers Ameridrives Torsiflex-i disc couplings that are compatible and highly-effective for ensuring the ideal operation of process pumps. These disc coupling products and can also be used in general industrial applications that can include compressors, fans, presses and processing machinery. Their drop-in spacer design enables easy installation without moving the hubs. A zinc phosphate coating is standard, and other materials and coatings are available as well. The Torsiflex-i can be paired with Torsi-Lock hubs for an easy, mechanical interference fit. The Torsiflex-I coupling is also of the dry disc type. Flexibility is obtained by the deformation of the disc packs, within defined limits, which are separated by a tubular spacer. Large hubs are available on the first two sizes. Torque range: 199 to 88,510 lb-ft (269 to 120,000 Nm) Typical applications: Pumps, compressors, fans, food processing machinery, printing presses
Clutch Engineering offers Coupling Corporation UltraFlexx couplings that boast the lowest spring rates in the entire industry. A unique ""strut"" design also gives the UltraFlexx a high torque capacity, while maintaining a small, lightweight package. The included low spring rates will increase the life of driveline equipment and promote greater machinery uptime to support your bottom line. UltraFLEXX couplings come equipped with Anderson Clamp Hubs as a standard. This enables a strong shaft connection with no keys, heat, or hydraulics. The UltraFLEXX is expertly designed to provide extreme flexibility in most standard coupling applications, making it perfect for many industrial use cases. Torque range: 4,260 to 51,324,000 lb-in (481 to 5,798,833 Nm) Typical applications: Compressors, fans, pumps, gas turbines, test stands
