Meritor adds self-adjusting clutch to Euclid offering

Meritor Inc. has added a new product to its Euclid clutch line: A self-adjusting 15.5 in. model for medium and heavy-duty trucks. The new clutch, which includes 15.5- x 2-in. models with seven springs or nine springs in four- and six-paddle options, is now available from warehouse distributors stocking Euclid-branded parts and from the company’s website.

“The self-adjusting model helps round out our Euclid clutch portfolio by offering more options to end users, especially those looking to avoid manual clutch adjustments,” said Jessica Sendelbach, Meritor’s product manager, Drivetrain. “The new unit is technician- friendly and offers ease of installation while eliminating the downtime typically associated with regular clutch adjustments.”

According to the company, the features of the new model include:

  • New over-adjustment prevention technology;
  • Patent-pending Actively Expanding Seal (AES) provides anti-contamination enclosure;
  • Self-locking worm gear to ensure positive adjustment;
  • Installation employing the same procedure used for installing manually adjusted clutches; and
  • Simple reset procedure (if required) that does not require clutch removal.
