In a previous blog post, we discussed the advantages of the centrifugal clutch. These included starting loads efficiently while saving energy, smooth acceleration, the elimination of expensive starting equipment, and more.
Another specific advantage of the centrifugal clutch is its ease of maintenance. Because our clutch is made of separate pieces, these pieces can be disassembled and easily taken apart without having to use a motor or a gear box. This means that when maintenance is needed, the clutch comes apart easily and allows for simple access.
BLM’s mechanism offers a distinct competitive advantage. In the competitors’ clutches, the majority are made as one solid unit, making it extremely difficult to do anything without taking the clutch apart entirely—it’s not a quick, easy fix.
However, our mechanism is in a drive body attached to a flange that can easily be dropped out, allowing the user to change the clutch out in a very short period of time. As anyone knows, saving time and money when it comes to maintenance are two of the biggest factors in remaining competitive, efficient, and successful.
Our custom centrifugal clutches are backed by over 80 years of experience. In this time, we’ve perfected the design of the clutch, knowing how to make them high quality, long lasting, and extremely easy to use and maintain.
Whatever your requirements, application, or industry, you can be sure the custom clutch will not only meet all of your exact requirements, but will be backed by these decades of research, advancement, and experience.
