Eaton Airflex WCS Clutches and Brakes
WCS elements are disc type, externally cooled, spring applied units. They are designed to absorb and dissipate the thermal loads associated with the most severe braking and tensioning applications. The WCS friction couple was developed specifically for continuous slip service and has a dynamic coefficient of friction which is larger than its static coefficient of friction. Special high coefficient linings are also available which provide 50% higher torque than standard friction linings and provide a 1:1 dynamic to static torque ratio.
