EZ N LITE ® CLUTCH
(US PATENT NO.- 6,619,458)
(REPLACES
* EASY PEDAL ® & LITE PEDAL )

Driver Fatigue has been established as the major source of Highway Accidents, Clutch Auto has developed "Low Pedal Pressure" Pull Type Clutch for class 6,7,&8 Trucks 7 busses. Pedal Pressure is halved making it
EZ N LITE ® for the driver.

This design of Cover Assembly provides flexibility in varying the axial load and in turn the release load to any desired configuration. A Cradle, on which the Pressure Springs (Standard design in use) are mounted has a 'U' shaped configuration on its arms which swivels on the 'Pivotal Contact Surfaces' of two 'Arrow Head' Pins fitted into cover.

Other Ends of Pressure prings are mounted on Flat Seats with spherical Cavities which roll over "Round Head Push Pins" fitted in the release sleeve retainers, permitting the pressure springs move freely in either direction i.e. Free Axial Movement of the springs(as and when clutch is disengaged or wear takes place on the pressure plate or any other moving part) between the Cradle and retainer seats is achieved around the Pivot Point.

The swiveling mechanism helps in obtaining the desired point away from the spring seat on the swiveling end. The possibility of achieving the pivot point at such desired point away from the spring seat results in an increase in the shift in the angular position of the spring, consequently the release load is decreased and the pedal pressure is lowered.

Nett Result: Better Driving Comfort, so important, especially during Long Hauls.

  • 300lbs. Release Load for 4000 lb Plate Load
  • Clamp Loads Remains Constant (Almost no drops after wear)
  • All Parts except Cover & Retainer common with Wxisting Design (Easily Serviceable) e.g. Pressure Plate, adjusting Ring, Springs, Knife edge Levers, Release Sleeve Assembly etc

* Easy Pedal is the registered trade mark of Eaton Corp.

Features

  • Self-Aligning Floating Clutch. - Release Sleeve Sub Assembly is subjected to significant forces & engine vibrations (Contributing to severe stresses) during engagement and disengagement/re lease of the clutch - leading to early wear of parts & even dislocation. Minimum Relative rotation between Release Sleeve sub Assembly and test of clutch mechanism helps extend service life of the Clutch.
  • Centralises all moving parts of the clutch.
  • Reduces Relative wear between mating sub assemblies.
  • Optimises clutch operation..
  • Retainer lugs mate with cover lugs, slide Coaxially - ensures concentric movement vis4vis Release Sleeve Assembly.
  • Flexibility provided between
