Mobile Electromagnetic Clutches
For Pumps and Compressors
Ogura mobile electric clutches provide reliable performance in applications where long life and no maintenance is critical. These clutches were primarily designed as air conditioning compressor clutches, but now are also used as clutches for hydraulic pumps (clutch pump), high pressure piston pumps, vacuum pumps and centrifugal pumps. The units that are used to clutch hydraulic pumps and to clutch water pumps are typically used for tow trucks, marine winch drives, and boom trucks in the utilities industry.
Pumps handling liquid are typically driven by our clutches from a gas engine on such equipment as water jetters, pressure washers, street sweepers and carpet cleaning trucks. Pump clutches are often used on vacuum pumps and compressor applications such as refrigeration and waste removal trucks as well as mobile service trucks, or “under hood” applications where the clutch engages an air compressor mounted in the engine compartment of a service truck.
Ogura mobile clutches range in size from 58 to 1500 lbs-ft and feature numerous pulley configurations including v-belt and poly-v as well as universal hub mounts. The user can choose from a straight, splined or tapered bore to match the corresponding pump shaft. Many of our older pump and compressor clutch configurations are interchangeable with competitor models.
