Posidyne Clutches and Clutch Brakes Featuring Oil Shear Technology

Eliminate Constant Repair in High Cycle or Severe Duty Applications

clutchbrakesPosidyne Clutch Brakes with Oil Shear Technology are designed to provide start stop indexing for high cycle, severe duty applications where high reliability is critical and downtime very costly. Allowing the motor to run continuously provides high cycle capability up to 300 CPM, improves efficiency, eliminates inrush current, reduces cyclic inertia by not cycling the motor armature, and reduces maintenance costs.

The basic Posidyne is designed as a foot mounted clutch brake in totally enclosed cast iron housing with input and output shafts. The Posidyne 1.5 is a lightweight C Face model with a quill input shaft and standard output shaft, and the Posidyne X Class is a value engineered C Face unit with quill input and standard output shaft.

Oil Shear Technology Makes the Difference

They are all made up of a clutch stack and brake made up of alternating friction discs connected to the output shaft, and drive plates connected to the input shaft or housing, a centrally located air or hydraulically actuated piston to exert pressure on either the clutch stack or brake stack – never both. Actuation pressure on the friction stack establishes the torque transmitted by that stack and is independently adjustable.

Transmission fluid circulating through the unit flows through an open center hub, through the friction stack, and out to the housing. Cooling occurs as the fluid runs back to the bottom of the unit to be recirculated. This system called Oil Shear Technology prevents wear on the friction surfaces, removes heat from the friction area to the housing, and lubricates all internal parts.
