Aggregate producers operating rock crushers, tub grinders or aggregate screening plants with Twin Disc or WPT style clutches no longer need to worry about downtime caused by a clutch failure.
Foley Engines, based in Worcester, Mass., is a 105-year-old, three-generation family firm that specializes in WPT and Twin Disc/Rockford power take-off (PTO) clutches. Also known as hand clutches, these clutches are often used in rock crushers, tub grinders and aggregate screening plants.
Foley now offers both new and factory remanufactured PTO clutches with upgraded severe-duty components including 100% Kevlar composite discs.
These proprietary Kevlar composite linings have as much as a 300% longer service life compared to the molded fiber friction discs commonly used, and avoid failures caused by broken teeth, the company said.
Not only do their Kevlar plates last longer, Foley-remanufactured exchange units eliminate the delay and downtime in having a PTO clutch rebuilt locally. Additionally, the remanufactured units offer the clutch owner significant savings compared to buying a new unit.
