Model HC Clutch

The Model HC or HCD clutches are designed to be used in either an end of shaft or through shaft mounting configuration. Their compact size makes these units ideal for incorporating within a gear housing. Multiple speed transmissions use a variety of these units to effect fixed mesh speed changes, or they may be used as a stand alone device for disconnect service.

All units incorporate provisions for forced oil cooling allowing high energy engagements to be made without causing thermal distress within the disc pack. Cooling oil is introduced from an external supply through axial holes provided in the shaft.

Marine main propulsion forward/reverse or disconnect service, winch disconnects, conveyor or mill soft-starts, and multi-speed transmissions are but a few of the applications for the model HC/HCD oil immersed clutches.
