Shiftable clutch for multiple applications
With the unique CENTA Clutch Pack CENTA provides an electromagnetic shiftable clutch which can be used for a variety of applications, covering a torque range of up to 7 kNm. The combination of a flexible torsional coupling with an electromagnetic shifting clutch and a flanged bearing housing ensure that the drive unit is reliably engaged or disengaged. It is the ideal solution for ship propulsion with propellers as well as waterjets, screw compressors and generators.
The CENTA Clutch Pack is an engineered combination of three reliable and well tried components designed for Diesel engine drives, whether they shall be engaged or disengaged. It consists of a robust and flexible torsional CENTAFLEX-R coupling with progressive characteristic designed to compensate for torsional vibrations and misalignments. Another important element is the simple robust, dry running electromagnetic pole-face friction clutch for engaging and disengaging. A proven CENTA flanged bearing housing with output shaft supported by tapered roller bearings complements the two components. It protects the crankshaft from dangerous reaction forces and helps to achieve extended life-time and little maintenance. The combination of the three units results in a robust electromagnetic clutch with a torque range of up to 7 kNm for engaging and disengaging the drive unit during the operation.
The CENTA Clutch Pack is the ideal solution for many different applications.It is especially used for ship propulsion with propellers, waterjets, Z-drives and thrusters. The coupling can be operated with onboard electronics (size 3 and 4 with voltage supply of 12 and 24 V). It also provides a cost-efficient alternative to conventional hydraulic couplings when used for pumping sets, generators and screw compressors.
The innovative CENTA couplings and drives are always based on the latest technology. CENTA has a long history of innovation. It has been offering a wide range of flexible couplings and shafts for almost four decades, which propelled the company into a leadership position in various industries worldwide, including marine engineering.
