PTO Bell Housing Clutches for Industrial Applications
Bell housing PTO clutches are utilized in a wide range of industrial markets, including agriculture, marine, oil & gas, forestry, mining, construction, and rail. The clutches are needed to engage and disengage diesel- or gas-powered engines from driven equipment, including pumps, augers, blowers, compressors, transfer cases, and winches.
Typically, bell housing clutches feature lever-activated mechanical over-center designs that require an operator to manually engage and disengage the clutch, which can present problems if a worker must climb or reach onto operating equipment to access the clutch lever. This is a very time-consuming, costly and, often dangerous process, especially on applications located in harsh, isolated areas such as large agricultural irrigation systems and oil field pump jacks.
WARNER ELECTRIC RESPONDS WITH INNOVATIVE PTO CLUTCH TECHNOLOGY
Based on a growing industry need for a more advanced clutching solution, Warner Electric engineers have recently developed a line of IoT-capable electric PTO clutches that can be conveniently operated from a remote control panel, tablet or cell phone**. The electrically-powered clutches require no hydraulic pumps, cylinders and hoses and no air compressors to operate. This is a significant factor in isolated locations.
