Economical Operation with a Cam Clutch

With the Cam Clutch Box Series, you can utilize excess steam to drive the fan from two driving sources, allowing you to achieve energy savings.

Use in Various Applications

Overrunning
In this type of application, the different conditions of engagement and disengagement are repeated arbitrarily, when the Cam Clutch inner and outer races engage each other to transmit torque, and when the Cam Clutch continues overrunning through the difference in rotating speed and direction between the inner and outer races. This is the same behavior as a freewheel on the rear bicycle wheel.
Indexing
This is also referred to as a rotary intermittent feed. Transmits torque to the inner race (shaft) by converting the outer race motion for a certain cycle into intermittent rotary movement. High-frequency engagement and freewheeling are repeated in this application.
Backstopping
In backstop applications, the Cam Clutch is used to prevent reverse rotation. The Cam Clutch continues freewheeling when the machinery is in operation, and it engages if reverse rotation occurs unexpectedly.
