2010 Sachs Class 8 clutch catalog released to the aftermarket

ZF Services released the 2010 Sachs heavy-duty clutch product line and catalog to the heavy-duty aftermarket. The product line includes premium-quality materials, original-equipment fit, maximum durability and reliability, the company said. The line offers 99% product coverage for Class 8 trucks manufactured after 1990.

ZF Services—the strategic aftermarket business unit of ZF Friedrichshafen AG—announced the release of the 2010 Sachs heavy-duty clutch product line and catalog to the heavy-duty aftermarket. As a spec’ able clutch option through most major Class 8 truck manufacturers In North America, the product line now available to the aftermarket offers everything one would expect from an industry leader: premium-quality materials, original-equipment fit, maximum durability and reliability, the company said.

With 99% product coverage for Class 8 trucks manufactured after 1990, truck owners and operators now have a choice when selecting an OE-grade aftermarket clutch for their truck, according to the company.   

The product line includes 14- and 15.5-in. models with up to 2,050 lb.-ft. peak engine torque capacity. Also offered in the product line are manual-and self-adjust (Twin Xtend) models, pre-damper for additional torsional vibration reduction, various spring and facing configurations, and greaseable, dual-zerk and extended lube bearing options, the company said.

ZF Sachs said it has also integrated proprietary features to further reduce torsional vibrations, increase clutch life and ease pedal effort:

• Softest damper rates: Prevent destructive vibratory torque from being transmitted through the drivetrain.

• Diaphragm spring: Versus coil springs, the diaphragm spring design increases the life of the clutch by giving uniform plate pressure and enhances driver comfort with an easy pedal effort.

• Adjustment ring sealant: The application of a special sealant on both the manual-adjust and Twin XTend clutches protects the adjusting ring mechanism from contaminants, dirt intrusion and worn facing material. As a result, clutch wear adjustments are precise and able to last the life of each disc.

• Supersized bearing housing wear pad with integrated lubrication channels: Prevent premature failure of the release bearing at the release fork contact points. Further, the bearing and bearing wear pads are lubricated via channels connected to the grease fitting. With only one point of lubrication, maintenance time is reduced.

• Fifth rivet: Ensures that the clutch facing won’t lift in high stress and heat situations, therefore eliminating clutch release problems.

The 2010 Sachs heavy-duty catalog is available in print and online. It features an easy-to-use clutch specification guide; listing of additional installation parts and interchange lists.  The entire 2010 product line is currently in stock and available through Horton Inc.
