Meritor unveils new line of clutches

Meritor has announced that it is launching a new line of AllFit clutches. The new all-makes clutch line includes both manual-adjust and self-adjusting models and covers heavy-duty, medium-duty, light-duty and off-road applications. AllFit all-makes clutches are equipped with high-performance friction material exclusive to Meritor and are new units with no assessed core charge or core handling fees, the company explained. All critical interior components are new, not remanufactured. The new line includes a standard, one-year product warranty coverage with labor reimbursement of up to $800.

The manual-adjust model is designed to maximize uptime and offer comfortable operation for drivers. The high-torque, easy pedal effort clutch reduces severe drivetrain vibration to lower maintenance costs and minimize downtime. A variety of sizes and torque ratings is available in the manual-adjusting portfolio, including:

  • 14-in. clutch assemblies with torque ratings from 620 to 1,400 lb./ft. for medium- duty applications
  • 15.5-in. clutch assemblies with seven-, eight-, nine- and 10-spring disc designs offering torque ratings from 1,250 to 2,250 lb./ft.
  • 15.5-in. easy-pedal effort clutches offering single-motion adjustment

The self-adjusting model is designed to help extend service life by eliminating the downtime typically associated with regular clutch adjustments. Available in 15.5 in. x 2 in. sizing, the self-adjusting clutch comes with seven springs or nine springs in four- and six-paddle options. Features of the self-adjusting model include:

  • Over-adjustment prevention technology
  • Patent-pending Actively Expanding Seal (AES) provides anti-contamination enclosure
  • Self-locking worm gear ensures positive adjustment
  • Installation employs the same procedure used for installing manually adjusted clutches
  • Simple reset procedure (if required) that does not require clutch removal
