Fairfield, OH –The MagnaShear motor brake from Force Control Industries employs oil shear technology, providing longer service life even in demanding applications like the frequent start/stop cycles seen on cranes, hoists, winches, and other mobile material handling equipment. Proven oil shear technology transmits torque between lubricated surfaces – thereby eliminating wear on friction surfaces.
A leading water treatment OEM needed an overload clutch solution for use on new sedimentation tanks for a mine in the Western US. The circular tanks have a rake or scraper arrangement at the bottom to remove sludge, and a skimmer at the top to remove the scum. The scrapers and skimmers rotate at very slow speeds and require an overload clutch to prevent excessive torque from damaging the drive mechanism.
