Marine Standard Ventilated Clutch | Wichita Clutch UK

All Wichita Marine Clutch units are custom built to satisfy marine classification society requirements.

The Wichita Standard Ventilated Clutch is usually used in combination with recognised flexible couplings to provide reliable in-line power transmission. The simple air-tube design, with minimum air volume and high engagement and disengagement speeds, is unaffected by centrifugal force and has no self-energisation like drum clutch designs. Ideally suited for high inertia loads such as main propulsion drives where smooth controlled starts are needed.

The Wichita Standard Ventilated Clutch combines all the best features of the disc type clutch design with all the advantages of direct air engagement. It is the simplest and most trouble-free method of controlling drive yet designed.

Problems of speed and smoothness of engagement in a compact design in a Marine environment are quickly solved with Wichita Air-Tube Clutches and Brakes.
