Industrial Clutch Parts Ltd. supply a complete range of Eaton Airflex Constricting Clutches & Brakes. The drum style products expand radially inward when pressure is applied, forcing friction shoes against an outer cylindrical drum surface.

Eaton's VC units are built for severe clutch or brake applications in which large inertia loads and sustained slippage would normally result in loss of torque and reduced operating life.

Type VC Characteristics:

  • Torque Rating: 27,000 - 9,300,000 lb-in
  • Max. Speed: 1,800 rpm
  • Available in a variety of narrow and wide standard sizes

Eaton Airflex Constricting Clutches & Brakes Type VC

Industrial Clutch Parts Ltd. is an authorized UK Distributor for Eaton Airflex Clutches & Brakes. Our large stock of Eaton Airflex products ensures prompt delivery and reduced lead times for our customers.

Eaton Airflex Constricting Clutches & Brakes maximize performance in a diverse range of market applications, from the marine industry to braking applications on heavy-duty equipment. Available with varying torque capacities and other features to meet the most demanding requirements.

VC units are designed to excel in severe clutching and braking applications on heavy-duty equipment. There is no better product on the market when it comes to high starting loads and sustained slippage where heat generated tends to lower efficiency and shorten the operating life of conventional clutches.

Manufactured to produce high torque ratings that permit the use of smaller diameter units which lowers contact velocity on high-speed applications. Ventilated construction permits passage of cooling air, to rapidly dissipate heat from the friction shoes.
