A properly designed and manufactured clutch and brake will decrease your stop times and eliminate full revolution machines.  Converting brakes from air set to spring set is a matter of compliance to the CSA-Z142 standard. 

Allied’s experienced millwrights and Torque Inc’s design engineer will choose the best unit appropriate for your application. Allied promotes Wichita as the premium clutch of choice for your conversion for the following reasons:

  • Cost effective
  • All parts and friction discs are readily available
  • Wichita has incorporated air tubes in their design which eliminates the need for frequent replacing of u-cups, seals and o-rings.
  • The ability to adjust the clearance in the unit prolongs the life of the friction discs.
