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 torque.
- 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
Cast iron - 0.7 to 1.7
Cork - 0.05 to 0.1
Note: Torques of less than 0.001 Nm will not be correctly displayed.
