It calculates the maximum torque that can be transmitted by a clutch that is undergoing uniform wear.
To use this calculator, enter value in empty boxes
below then click on Calculate button to compute the maximum clutch
For a clutch operating dry the coefficient of friction will normally be in the range of 0.2 - 0.45.
For clutches running in oil the coefficient of friction will typically be in the range 0.08 to 0.15.
Typical lining pressures are:
Moulded materials and sintered metals
1 to 2
0.7 to 1.7
0.05 to 0.1
Note: Torques of less than 0.001 Nm will not be correctly displayed.
